Southern Utah: Day 2

It rained most of the night and morning. Access to the site was closed off until Friday.

Thursday morning started off pretty wet, just like the night before. From what I was told by the locals they are not used to getting this amount of rain ever. So basically it just showed up to ruin the first day of practice for everyone. But eventually around noon the sun started to come out and burn off some of the clouds…along with drying up the dirt/clay. Some of the riders took it as a rest day to catch up on some sleep. A bunch of the riders that weren’t into resting went and hit up the old Rampage site for some sessions. And of course all the photo/video guys followed suit. Everyone ended up getting some practice in some form or another.

Wet clay will stick to and muck up just about anything you can throw at it.
