There isn’t much left to be said about this year’s installment of the Whiskey Off Road that hasn’t already been said. I picked Cupcake up at the airport on Thursday night and we set out on a mission to Prescott. We were armed with nothing but a keg of beer, a couple gallons of whiskey, and some bikes. We didn’t know exactly where we were sleeping and we didn’t know who we would run into. But we did know that we were going to have a whole lot of fun.
We teamed up with the crew from Sunday Cycles and made one of the most kick ass “aid” stations I have ever witnessed. By the time the middle of the pack rolled through on Saturday, it was a legitimate party on the side of the mountain. A big thanks to Sunday and our friends at Boulders on Broadway for their help. We couldn’t have had such a rocking time without you guys.
I put together a bunch of video clips from the weekend in an attempt to sum up what it was like from my perspective. I hope you dig it.
I can’t say enough about how cool the Whiskey weekend is. I look forward to it every year. To me, it’s a model of how mountain biking events can and should be. I have never witnessed a town so welcoming to thousands of dumb mountain bikers than Prescott, Arizona. Thanks to Epic Rides and everybody that makes this weekend possible. See you next year!
