In a few places, the trails are pretty tight. 90% of it is single track. There are a couple of really tight switchbacks that I can make about 50% of the time. You don't want to know what happens the other 50% .. no shame on the tight corners pushing the bike around. Other than that, it's a very scenic, fun ride. I may ride Stansbury this weekend or next. All depends on the weather. If it's not too hot this weekend, I'll be riding the Buzzards race at Cherry Creek. Either way, you're invited, I'll make a decision on Tuesday when I'll be riding Stansbury.

Your 650 should do well I have seen many up there at stansbury.
Eric, Chris, dezrider...,
Rode Stansbury yesterday. Trail is getting loose and rocky in spots and is looking even narrower with the vegetation grown in. The trail was slightly torn up in the rocky areas where the unfortunate droped down the hill. Ground was crawling with those giant Mormon Crickets. To make a long story short the Dunlops on the WR have to go! It is scary when your bike is sliding everywhere and you only have a foot or two of trail to slide on before the drop off. Anyway, did 2 round trips on the north end (36 miles total) starting from South Willow Creek Road.

So... anyone up for riding next weekend if Eric goes to the race? I really want to get out for saturday and sunday. Danny bailed on next sunday and Eric may go to the race. Anyone else going who would let me come? Thanks!
I did not bail. I am going to try and ride both days.

Ok, never mind. We'll go on sunday, and if I can't find anybody who is riding all day saturday, I'll go with you saturday evening as well. Any idea where you want to go yet?

Come down to the Cherry Creek race and ride sportsman class with me. Sign-up starts at 9:30am and the race starts at 11:30am. Weather should be a cool 80 degrees. Perfect.

Sorry I missed your message. The race went great. I came in around mid-pack (sportsman class). Some fast sections, some technical sections, and about 30 miles of whoops. I'll have to keep racing and work myself up to the front of the "slow" guys . If you're interested, I'd like to ride the stansbury trail this Saturday.

This was my second time up there and there are really some trail design problems in areas. Also the Uinta National Forest must not believe in trail markers because there are none in many areas and it gets a bit confusing. You would think that with all the money they rake in from the entrance fees they could put up some signs and work on the trails a bit.

Here's the directions to the Stansbury trail. Make your way to Grantsville either from I-80. Just barely out of Grantsville on Hwy 138 (northwest of town) there is a road called Max Canyon Road heading west. Let's meet at 10:00am right at the Max Canyon Road and Hwy 138 intersection. Here's a map to get you to Grantsville (hope the picture works)... <img src='http://www.dsidata.net/stansburytrail.gif'>
