Throwback Thursday: It’s a Tough Job, But Someone Has to Do It

We’re going back almost nine years with this shot. Our staff was in Park City, Utah, trying out the newest Cannondale bikes on the epic trails at the Deer Valley ski and bike resort. Back then, most mountain bikes had either 26″ or 29″ wheels; the 650b/27.5-inch wheel revolution hadn’t arrived yet. A few companies offered them, but they wouldn’t really catch on until two or three years later. One of the best things about trips like that is that we would get to ride brand-new, totally dialed-in bikes on some of the best trails in the country. It’s hard to have a bad experience in a situation like that. That’s Doug Dalton in the front of this group, riding one of the newest Cannondale bikes of the time, one equipped with the company’s iconic, one-legged Lefty fork. Photo: JK/Mountain Bike Action
