MAZATLAN BIKING AT ITS BEST AND KRAZY KOLA

OK So this is the best Mexican vacation I´ve had AND it´s because I´m mountain biking almost every day! I can´t down load pics so Í´ll have to post them later when we get back. But too much has happened to hold off any longer.

So I found on the net that the 2000 world CUP was held here so obviously there was mountain biking in the area. We signed up for an 8 hour ride for monday (So we found out later that no one ever reall had signed up for such a ride) So we got to Kelly´s bike shop early to find the owner Fernando Copolla Kelly opening up surprised to hear that we wanted an 8 hour ride. The booking company never advised him of that. But he set us up with bikes, closed up the shop (literally) and we headed out. Me on a NORCO something or other (NOT THE SAME AS AN ARANTIX) and Dot with an Alpa specialized. We went out for from 9 am to about 1:30 pm of basicly continuous riding. We hit ALL three race courses that were just outside of town. We rode from the shop and got to ride all kinds of terrain. Í`ll post details and pick later. We cut the ride short since it was getting hot and we had exhausted what seemed to be the best single track. It was a great ride! Plus we rented the bikes for the rest of the week and I´ve been out each morning since then mainly hitting the world cup course several times.
that`s it in a nut shell but you´`ve got to stay tuned for the Krazy Kola story involving my poor wife. By the way she kicked butt keeping up with us for her first 45+ K ride UNTIL THE WIFE EATING MAN(WOMAN)HOLE!!!!!!
