Before heading out (way out) for Le' Tour, I stopped by Shawn Os' for a little ride in Reno on the new Halo trail. Some people "bag" on the riding in Reno and it's a shame really. It's unlikely you'll find me riding down there in the heat of summer, but in the fall, winter and spring it gives us Tahoe folks the option for riding some fast, flowing trails just half an hour down the road.
Gentlemen.... start your engines! The course is a 60ish second dirt loop complete w/ two slalom sections, tight gravely corners, a jump and a pit stop for an 8oz glass... err... cup of wine. Fastest 6 of the night move to the final. There were some heavy hitters lined up to ride their lap... literally.
The wine stop can make or break you. Try as he might, Mike's loosing some valuable points for spilling his drink.
