Another beautiful day to ride in Southern California! I met up with my teammate Johnny and we decided to ride to Little Tujunga! This mountain near Sylmar, CA was HOT and FAST! A very fun and fast climb, great for technical riding and practicing your bike handling.
Go Fast Bikes
We made it to the Bear Divide Sign and decided to head back! This was an amazing climb, I loved it and really enjoyed the scenery. On the way back from Bear Divide I took a nasty spill. I tried to be Peter Sagan on Day 2 in the mountains and it came back to bite me. I came in fast and before I knew it I found gravel…then I found the pavement.
After starting the descend it wasn’t too long until I slid out. There was plenty of gravel and I should’ve been a bit more cautious going down. I was honestly just having too much fun, but you live and you learn. After getting up, we determined the bike was in no condition to ride. I broke a shifter and the rear derailleur wasn’t working. We tried fixing it with our multi tool but the cable was damaged in the crash. I was frustrated with myself but mostly wanted to get out as fast as possible. I started walking back and sent Johnny ahead to hopefully get a car to get me out of the mountain. It wasn’t long until good luck struck and some nice guys named Jose and his son Martin gave me a ride back to my car. We passed Johnny on the way back and I waved to him letting him know I’ll see him again soon. All in all it was a tough ride but I can’t wait to conquer Little T!
