Sat. Aug. 15, X-XC at Boyne Highlands

Boyne High evening sesh - still wet from the days' rain but a pretty eXtreme XC ride on the the north side off the mountain. Super moist with sandy sections and I had to pump up my tires to the max the week before. Only about a 6 mile ride but hoofing it uphill for about 35% of the ride made it a 50+ minute ride. One highlight is the Pontiac Lake like halfpipe that is 10 times the length and speed. Great job marking the trails too - you can actually figure out where you are at most of the time. The MTB director there said they sold 100 lift tix - one of the best days ever. I can't wait to come back and do the DH with all the protective gear.
