    Affirmative. Too bad he doesn't review bikes, it would be very helpful to see him on different adv bikes riding the same course.

    FYI. They graded Cassner switchbacks. I actually passed them finishing the last turn. Get it while it is perfect! This is the final climb up, it was Erzberg rocks two months ago 21450D39-3870-4616-9939-8956BABD4B19.jpeg

    Interesting, Did they grade all the way up to the steep(est) part on Casner or just the switchbacks?

    I was just through there and it was in rough shape. There was also a large boulder completely blocking passage for anything other than a motorcycle.

    Yes it's about getting service trucks, fire trucks etc, in case of forest fire in which the latter is getting riskier nowadays due to drought. They did the same with the back way of CK few years ago till it got teared down. And now there's a fire in CK: https://www.azfamily.com/news/arizo...cle_7ad07cd2-0f2d-11eb-bf9b-6fa3ae065632.html

    Well I think that it being graded is a bummer as I like the trails a little rougher I also think it is an amazing opportunity for people to get to ride one of the most scenic trails in the state. The loop from Flagstaff down to Sedona taking Casner is spectacular. Other than that hill it was all pretty easy before.
