      Found a red stem for a tubeless tire. If you are the owner and want it back see the attached photo for the location of where it was found.

      This is definitely a free ride/downhill style coarse. You'd have to be a pretty darn good rider to tackle some of the obstacles, my biggest...

       Serious kudos to the designers and builders of this trail. Despite how raw and technical it is, it is obvious the huge amount of effort that went into making it rideable. I didn’t hit any of the sketchy gaps, but the climb and the DH were two thumbs up!
