Scott Week: Genius LT Tuned for Enduro

Was having so much fun on the flow trails at Deer Valley, decided for the last run to try a double black. After 5 runs on Sunset and Naildriver, I walked the gnarliest sections of Twist and Shout. Had the spirit and desire, but not that technical of skills. The bike could totally handle it though, and I felt I let it down. Feeling like I owed the Genius something, raced against a setting sun to get the shot on a fire road between alpine meadows.

The Genius LT Tuned is refined for 2015 and it’s got the pop-on-the showroom looks, just look how the sun lit up the graphics. Compared to the Spark I rode in Sedona, the slack geometry is for aggressive trail riding and I kept my weight forward and arms out, steering the front end through the turns.

Richard from Pinkbike told me at dinner that the soul of mountain biking is in Enduro, which this bike was made to race. Considering that Enduro is inclusive with no rules, and anyone can compete on the same course as the pros, that’s now on my list of stories to write. I’ll do it with a bike like the Genius LT Tuned. I haven’t been to an Enduro, but expect it’s like gravel is to road now.

See more photos from Scott Week on G+. And if you’re interested in riding in Park City, at the first IMBA Gold Level riding resort with world class trails. I’ve ridden in Park City now several times and recommend White Pine Touring as a guide. Just a few weeks ago, I took the GT Grade on Mid Mountain trail and featured that story in Issue 14 of our magazine.



Le Tour Update: Tour Delayed


Breaking: Tour De France On Hold As Cyclists Ride Over To Creek To Check Out Bugs

Traveling from Seattle to Vegas for another Mobile Social, and now in Park City for Scott week, haven’t seen the Tour in a day. Then I learned from the Onion that the racing was delayed because Andre Greipel found some stick bugs down at the creek! Funniest commentary I’ve seen for a race that’s the most interesting and unpredictable Tour in decades. And why is that? As Patrick Brady said,

cause we’re not just waiting to see who Froome is gonna F up each stage.

For more entertaining views of the Tour, also see the Crash Graphic and what it’s like on the sidelines.
