Today's stage started with a long 14 km climb and we settled into the back of our wave until we hit some new single track. We climbed 500m of elevation but hit a backlog straight away. Luckily we were able to get around them and began another technical decent with slippery rock faces this time. Our hands hurt with the long technical decent and we got a short respite before the Enduro downhill. Once ...

This ancient forest is home to a 800 year old Douglas Fur that stands 76 m tall and 9m round (taller than the leaning tower of Pisa).
Unfortunately, the photos do not do it justice. This is truly an amazing place.
