14 years on and Bill’s words still ring true, now that’s good writing.
Burry was one of the greatest talents the sport has ever seen. Few people had the fitness to dominate XC World Cups as well as the skills to rally a hardtail 29er the way he did. It is truly tragic to hear of his passing in such a terribly way.
RIP Burry, you were great inspiration to many.

Probably the last mountain ride of the season in this part of the state (luckily I will be in Phoenix soon). All and all wet and muddy and pretty damn good. Although seeing rather large, feline looking tracks in the mud and snow on the ground, plus the fact that my brakes sounded like a small animal in distress was a bit disconcerting.
