Today’s author: Forrest
Today we completed our annual mountain bike in Italy. Each year it is a little different. This year we had good weather except for one part. After we turned the final turn in the unia schlucht wind hit us at 70 Miles per hour. Along with the wind was rain that felt like needles piercing any visible flesh. The older boys (Walker, Forrest and Elliot) started earlier with Justin and Jere. We climbed a pass and were rewarded with a 15 k downhill. Then we biked towards a town at the bottom of the unia schlucht climb where we met Lizzie, Kat, Tan-man and Carl. Everyone did well climbing. I was personally surprised by how well everyone did. After getting through the brutal wind and rain from the unia schlucht to the top of the schlenig we stopped for some drinks and then had an epic 4000 ft decent back into Mals.
Top of the big climb for a rest.
A cat we found on our way up. He loved attention.

Walker loves Italy. He is probably going to move here.

JB throwing up a peace sign.
Jere loved taking pictures throughout the trip. Here he is near the top of the unia schlucht.
Liz getting towards the top.
Pretty crazy thinking we went through there.
Happy Jere, Happy Liz

Stoke is high!

Dinner tonight was personally my favorite of the trip. Five courses of delight. Everyone is tired now, most sore, but the energy is high. Tomorrow we will go to engish classes at the school and wrap up our trip with a ski up stelvio.
