Mountain Bike magazine tested the limits of this year’s best mountain bikes on Sedona’s toughest trails. And the Turner Sultan came out on top in the Trail 29er category!!

Here is some of what they had to say:

When we turned the Turner Sultan loose on Sedona’s trails, we expected big things from the proven DW-Link suspension. We were not disappointed. The design offered smooth, efficient pedaling with 120mm of generous travel. The suspension soaked up bumps while, crucially, preventing the bike from wallowing.

Sunday June 12th was opening day at Middle Mountain, one of our favorite local DH trails here in Durango. Many of my friends showed up for a full day of shuttling. Local photographer/rider Jerry Hazard was there taking pictures and video to document the day. Here is a link to a video Jerry put together of the trail from top to bottom. Middle Mountain 2011

Congratulations to Darian Harvey on piloting her DHR to a first place finish in the Pro Women

Angel Fire was a short trek of about five hours south from Durango. I drove down Friday morning with fellow racer Darian Harvey. Well actually, Darian drove while I caught up on sleep after a late night of prepping bikes and packing. The Super D course was a blast; it had everything including high speed straits, burmed turns, flat loose turns, and of course sweet jumps. Here is a link to a practice run. Angelfire Practice Run

The race started out pretty well. After the first turn I managed to work my way from near last to fifth. I managed two passes  when the course opened up onto one of the ski runs. I thought all was good only to get passed right before flatting about a quarter of the way down the course. Here is a link to the race run. Angelfire Race Run
