Trace Ridge with The Pony

It's always a treat riding with Ian. Today we knocked out the classic Trace Ridge loop. From the first gate->5000->Spencer->Trace Ridge->Res Rd->5000 back to the Jeep. Ian had a hard warm-up but about half way up Spencer he found his mojo and we were flying. We both almost cleaned from Spencer to the top, we both dismounted for the super slickery washout-gully at the top of the descent, and both topped out at about 25mph on the fast parts near the bottom. There was no opportunity for photos during a downhill like that so, for your viewing pleasure, photos of Ian climbing:
