If you are a bike mechanic in Moab, these are the days that you dream of. Very few tourists and tons of free time to get out riding. Glover, Rat bait, and Cam are bike mechanics in Moab, Utah. Their off-season starts December 1st. This is how they celebrate!

 We met a tweeker in all camo at a bar on Main Street with a barbershop theme/chairs(?) and we spent the night in his trailer down toward the NW? part of town, by a sewage plant I think. Bought some Cinnamon Schnapps at the government store the next morning and rode Slickrock and it was cold AF. Stairway to Heavin for real. I asked my dude driving me back down towards Four Corners to stop at highway 666 so i could steal a sign (this is the 90s) but I was too hurt in the backseat to uncurl. The 5$ "Navajo Tacos" weren't Tacos and didn't help. Never been back. Love that place though.....

 See if those guys can pick up my skin for me while they're at it. I've left a lot of forearm and shin meat on that trail. Pretty epic spot. Tough to beat back-to-back-to-back days on Amasa/Ahab, The Whole E, and Mag7. Must-do three-day trip.

 So glad to be able to say, ‘been there, done that.’

...and bring back the Whole Enchilada Enduro Race!!!! What happened? I got to ride the inaugural in 2012 and now it’s gone!?!?!? Just wrong.

 Great video. The song is a little like getting a BJ w/ braces.

 At least there won't be endless comments asking who did the soundtrack. Awful audio, awesome video.

 Too much slow motion for me, I had to fast-forward it to watch it in normal speed.

 Music is the hardest thing to get right with these videos! You either get free tunes from YouTube, which are never good, or start paying big bucks for something slightly better. kind of like getting a BJ with braces... :^)

 Reading the replies makes me realize how lucky we are to live in Colorado (where the biking doesn't suck either) and having Moab as a great weekend getaway.. I can't even begin to count how many times I have been there, 4 times this year.. maybe 50 times in my life? Such a fun place..

 That ain't enduro there eeeasy rider... - that's ol' school all mountain ridin'. They had to climb some tech to get there. Up Hymasa, down Ahab is one of my favorite all time runs, anywhere. Excellent video!!!

 Agreed, rode it in Oct. Such a fun trail, then they show the drop at the end on the old amasa back jeep trail, classic.

 Pretty sure eeeasy was referring to the Specialized Enduro one of the dudes is riding in this clip and not the discipline of mtb itself. Why do folks have such a hard time with the term anyway? Sheesh, just ride people.

 I've been lucky enough to ride a lot of great places. Before I had a chance to check it out, I thought Moab might be over-rated but once I started riding there, I think it's one of the best places to ride in the US

 Oh no! Not overrated in the least. I remember the first time I went there, I thought to myself, "Why did I drive five hours to ride when I can ride some pretty good trails in mere minutes from my home? Is it worth it?" The answer: yes. Worth every bit of it.

 Well, let's see. I counted twenty one endo's if that was me riding. When I watch these videos, it shows how far I have to go to become that skilled. Geesh!

 cables, or his chain?

 Longer cable loop so when going DEEP into travel it doesn't pull 'em. Very serious video analysis!

 That looks pretty damn rad.
