If you haven't ridden in the Uncompahgre.. (vid)

..then you really, really should.

One of the most pure fun days of singletrack I've had in a long time.

Nice riding Ken, you're doing really good in traffic, when the 2T snarl didn't make 'em pull over a quick pass on an off-camber rock face seemed to work pretty well

Is it just me or does YT quality seem to be getting worse. I've got some really clear vids that look like crap when I upload them, lots of Pixilation like I'm seeing in your vid too. It's still a great video

How'd you do?

Thanks, but I'm sure it'll be a boring weekend full of dull jeep roads anyway. [repeats to self 100x]

Thanks. And yes! I haven't gotten around to editing/posting anything for a while, but I was wondering wtf has happened to the quality. This was rendered at 1080/12K but the YT version looks like crap even on the 1080p viewer. Every time the speed picks up it turns to squares. May be time to give Vimeo another shot.

Got 1st Open B class, 5th OAB.
