That was my first trip out west. I started mountain biking in 04 and had wanted to ride out west ever since. I was glad to finally make out there this year. We road slick rock while we in MOAB also. After some canyoneering we headed to fruita for some riding. The riding was pretty awesome there to. You right about the technical riding. I thought I was a pretty good technical rider until I road in MOAB/Fruita. Those places really put me in my place......Can't wait to go back.
