It’s no secret that the Whiskey Off-Road is a staple on our calendar every year. And why wouldn’t it be, just look at the name. There’s a few different ways you can enjoy this event. 1) Come to win. Be super racey and get your hurt on. And it’s not hard with 6,000’+ of climbs on the 50-Proof. 2) Come to ride. Maybe give it some stick from the start, but then reach for your flask and chill out when the demons of cramp hill find you. 3) Come to party. I mean it’s held on Whiskey Row of all places. This, I may add, is also not hard to accomplish.
My personal favorite is some combination of the last two. This year I rolled into town with a giant flask of whiskey and a camera. Could we have rode more? Yes. Could we have drank less? Of course. But that’s the thing about the Whiskey. It just kind of takes over. Despite your best intentions, whatever they may be, the Whiskey is going to do what it wants. And that’s exactly why you should come join the party in 2017.
See you in Grand Junction….by
