Evolution is now one of the most iconic trails on Galbraith, and for good reason- it not only rips, but it has a little bit of everything!
From the succession of proportionately sized hip jumps at the beginning, to the long wooden bridge and following drop, to the well sized gaps and berms at the bottom, every time I go down Evo I think to myself “Wow! I should really ride that more often!” The flow is real.
As of last night, the snow is still fairly substantial at the top of the trail. I was hoping it’d offer good grip, but was still pretty slippery. The first time I broke my pelvis, it was on an icy spot that led into a rock garden. My bike started sliding sideways and that sent me into the rocks perpendicular to the trail, causing a big high side right into the rubble. Ever since that wreck, over 10 years ago, I’ve been a little hesitant to send it too hard when conditions can hide icy patches.
Do you enjoy riding in the snow, or does it sketch you out?
