Going through all the media from this year and picking out my favorite photos is a fun rest week pastime. This banger from @koz_ is definitely one of my favs. Aspens for days!! 😍 πŸƒπŸƒ // Thanks to everyone who made this crazy season possible... these companies are the reason I get to chase my dreams and I am so incredibly grateful πŸ’—πŸ’— @jamisbicycles @vittoriatires @slimeproducts @pocsports @tmebar @santafebrew @xpedousa @ospreypacks
🎢 Superman got nothin' on me 🎢 made it into @curtiskeene's latest "On Track" looking real fine on this section of Bonzai DH in Aspen back in July... #ibelieveicanfly #lookslikeimwrong
So fun to see this spread of gorgeous photos from @louisarevalo in the 2017 @ospreypacks workbook! Some really cool stuff coming from Osprey this year, can't wait to show it off 😎😎 #battlescars
That awkward moment when you encounter a twenty foot replica of yourself in the @xpedousa booth πŸ˜‚ 🐒 make sure you're following my story (⬆⬆⬆) to see my favorite whacky awesome new stuff at @interbike
All packed up and ready to go home (via Interbike). If we're being honest, my head wasn't in it for Kamikaze Games this weekend. I've been switched off for the past few weeks, just powering through to when I can get some rest and rejuvenate. Sometimes you have to listen to your brain and respect what it's telling you -- I took a lot of go-arounds in yesterday's race, even going around things I rode in practice, which hurt my pride a bit but I just didn't have it, whatever the hell "it" is. I crashed twice for unbelievably stupid reasons (like forgetting to tighten my handlebars πŸ˜‘) and generally rode poorly. But it's over now, and it doesn't define me. And goddamnit, I need a nap.
Hello, world 😍🌎πŸ’₯ After a long saga tracking down a replacement headset bearing and an even longer season, I'm just thankful to be out here riding my bike on a day like this in a place like this. Sometimes it feels like nothing is going my way this year and I won't lie, that's been pretty hard. But I also realize how freaking lucky I am to be doing this, because every day spent on a bike is an enormous privilege. So no, today was not my best riding ever, yes I'm a tad bit discouraged, but I'll be back at it tomorrow, and the day after that. Because I fucking can, and that's a gift.
Obviously when your boyfriend nearly runs you over the only appropriate response is to squeal and assume fetal position. πŸ‘πŸ‘ #slowclap #imsuchagirl #trueloveiscomplicated

Chutes and ladders and wall rides πŸ’“πŸ’“ good weekend working on getting my mojo back at @angelfirebikepark. Heading out on the next adventure in a few days!
🍳🍳🍳 #panshotfriday going fast in Crested Butte last weekend! thanks for the photo @koz_ πŸ‘πŸ‘
PSA: insure your bikes!!!! Version 1.0 of this awesome little trail whip was stolen from me five months ago, less than a week after I built it up. So stoked to have put the finishing touches on Version 2.0 this afternoon. Massive thanks to @jamisbicycles for working with me to get a replacement -- best sponsor ever! πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ Also, massive EFF OFF to people who steal bikes, you're literally the worst πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘Ž
#squad post epic butt sliding fest 😘😘 thanks for the πŸ“· @isdegold
Full dweebin through the tight switch backs at the bottom of Caves trail this weekend. I swear it's hard to look cool on this trail damnit. Thanks for the shot @koz_ πŸ“·πŸ‘πŸ‘ #shortshortslongfemurs #strugglebus
Number plate? What number plate? πŸ™ŠπŸ™Š Such a good time sliding around on my butt and giggling... spent the first half of the day trying to dial in the new suspension and going pretty conservatively. Didn't feel like I was racing until the last stage, even stopped for a chat on stage 6 with awesome heckle crew @alexanderjosiah and @scott.to.love.me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ what a genuinely ridiculous weekend, pleased to have finished!
In keeping with my recent luck, I blew up my shock on the first stage of the #bme finals in Crested Butte and rode the rest of the day with almost no air in the shock, consequently hitting my pedals on every available rock. Apparently I'm cursed. That said, I still had fun sliding around in the mud and hike-a-biking up three different mountains. 7 hours, 45 minutes of riding/hike-a-biking and 6000 vertical. How can that be a bad day? #Repost @mountain_flyer with @repostapp
You know it's going to be a good day when the van party starts at 730am. Day 1 of the #bme finals was cancelled due to weather but we had already drank too much coffee so we set up our #jankyawning and @shredlightly88 busted out the grill. #boom #partyon
There's nothing better than riding bikes in Crested Butte. I was planning on resting my legs in anticipation of this weekend's sufferfest but these goons dragged me up a mountain, and it was rad. πŸ‘πŸ‘
Using nearly all my suspension to get down the infamous #barneyrubble rock garden at @deervalleyresort. Guys, it's really a miracle I haven't bitten off my tongue this season... πŸ‘…πŸ‘… #sunsouttonguesout #smoothlikeatrainwreck πŸ“·πŸ“· @schirfphoto
Rode conservatively but apparently also slowly today at the @endurocupmtb in Deer Valley. Solid mid pack finish in 8th, but achieved objective number one, aka no more face plants. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ I know I have a lot more in me, but today wasnt the day. Good news is there will be other days. //// @jamisbicycles @vittoriatires @xpedousa @pocsports @slimeproducts
It's a drop, it's a jump, it's... uhh... up to interpretation apparently. #fbf to shooting at @deervalleyresort earlier this year. Looking forward racing here this weekend!! Lots of fun, awkward bits like this one. Thanks for the πŸ“·πŸ“· @louisarevalo
