TSE bikini girl, Michelle, and the winners of the Team SnowBike Enduro, Maciej, Jamison and John.

The Team SnowBike Enduro at Lake Geneva Canopy Tours was a rousing success! Right about 90 racers on 29 teams competed in the 3-hour enduro. There are a bunch of pix from the Team SnowBike Enduro here.

If you missed out on an event shirt we have a few left. Socks too. we’ll have them in our store in a few days.

    I’m not sure what happened, but my Mukluk 3 review disappeared off my blog, so I had to literally rewrite it. You can find the new version at http://dirtstories.blogspot.com/2012/01/new-improved-salsa-mukluk-3-review.html

    Enjoy, and sorry for the confusion. I’m still not sure what happened. It happened over a weekend while I was away, so I’m trying to figure it out…

    Cheers,
    MG

    This looks like a lot of (mad) fun! We should try this in the UK. If only we had enough snow. Plenty of rain, though. Those fat tyres look just the thing for the snow.
