Chasing the Yeti

Out with Mark 'the yeti' on a Cliftons experience. A bit chaotic but will always be fun!

 One needs to get into slimy root mode and hang on down that trail. Lush forest and root infested trails tend to go together. Makes for some very exciting riding with no time to let your concentration wander.

 Exactly, slippery root mode.. I kind of cheat and just unweight the handlebar and lay off the front brake pretty much all together. Does that match your slippery root mode?

 @buspilot: That is exactly what I do. The front wheel gets un weighted .
Then the rear tire just slides into place.
In the video I noticed some sweet rear tire root sliding action.
Tonnes of fun.

 You'd be fine Mick! Looks like you are shredding in your latest upload, those Rocky trails are looking stellar.

 Very nice looking zone. Seems tight in spots, eh? Is it originally a bike trail?

 Its tight, especially when your bars keep growing..at 785 right now and I kind of like that width but really should cut em down to fit the trail better. I have been asking around but no one seems to now this trails origins.

 @buspilot: right. Yes I run an 800 and feel like I’m driving a big rig. Majority of our trail system has been built to accommodate but the odd time you get an adrenaline filled reminder at speed. Makes you shiver and thankful to still be alive. Looks like a fun area to play in. Thanks for the tour!

 @conv3rt: thank goodness for short stems and quick steering for mid air corrections!
