The professional mountain biker paralyzed in a racing crash in Colorado this summer is wrapping up her rehab at Craig Hospital and making big strides in her recovery every day.

Tara Llanes will soon be heading home to California. It has been 3 and 1/2 months since the accident that paralyzed her from the waist down.

Llanes is determined to get better.

“The first time my left leg moved in the water, I was almost speechless afterwards,” Llanes said. “I just couldn’t stop smiling. I knew I felt my muscle go in bed, but when you do it in the pool, you can see how much you can actually move.”

She knows there is still much work and rehabilitation to be done.

“Then in the same respect you get so excited about it, then you get out of the pool and you get in the chair and you’re wondering why the hell can’t you do the same thing,” Llanes said. “It hits you again as to what you aren’t capable of right now.”

She still remains resolved to walk again.

“It doesn’t mean I’m going to stop keeping my positive attitude and fighting to make these little guys walk every single day, because they’re going to, whether they want to or not, they’re going to.”

She also renewed her original promise to CBS4’s Greg Moody to ride again with him.

Curtis Robinson and Dylan Dunkerton have produced this stunning “how to” vid on Pumping and Cornering. This mini-instructional offers not only creative framing and editing, but an impressive music score too. Well done boys!
The first part takes place on their newly built pumptrack where Kyle Jameson, a Summer Gravity Camps coach, provides instruction. The second half brings the cornering to SSC’s Rat Race DH course with the help of the one and only, Micayla Gatto, World Cup DHer. That girls tears everything to shreds!

RACE THE ARDUUM CHALLENGE, OCTOBER 20-21st!

October 16, 2007

SOURCE: ARDUUM CHALLENGE

CHALLENGE: something that by its nature or character serves as a call to battle, contest, special effort, etc.

The trail “Arduum” itself started out as two trails built “back in the day” We hiked these trails, looking for a good DH training course. When we realized that the combination of the two would give us everything we wanted (steep, techy, off-camber, rooty, and some flow) we built a connector and started reworking them. The finished product was this trail. We rode it a few times, had some friends ride it and we all agreed, we couldn’t keep it a secret, we had to share this one. We decided to host a race. Just like that??

Nope. The decision to do the race happened six weeks ago. Lots of hoops to jump through, things to look after, trail to perfect but we did it. The “Arduum Challenge” has come to life. Take this as your call to battle one another and “The Steep.”

Preview the course here in this video by Brent Tahk:
