Looks like fun! Glad to see it finally dried out some in your area. My mid week escape this week was to Whistler! Did the bike park one day and some cross country stuff another. Must admit that technical means something totally different to me now. Yowsa! Some of the stuff on the XC trail I rode/walked (Comfortably Numb) was impressive to say the least. Red Rocker was the official photographer so I'm sure he will be posting some pictures over the weekend as he is still in Vancouver.

Couple of take-aways from my trip. Rentals stink. Yeah, the bikes are OK, but they aren't set up like yours. Two, I have a new appreciation for DH riders (not that I didn't before), but after riding at the bike park all day, my legs were hurting for the rest of my visit. Those bikes were fun, but pedalling was a definite afterthought!

We be riding every weekend so far, how about we go to your neck of the woods this weekend? (7/23) Fleming to North Shore/Freeway.

So you're training for Mammoth, I see....

..Cheater.

Don't worry, I'll be sure to wait for you at the bottom.... just like last year :)

Right now I'm sucking a stogie and drinking Romanian wine at the beach....you know, just to keep things fair .

Feel the gin

If riding for fun is training, then I'm guilty!

OF course you'll be waiting at the bottom, that usually how it works when you don't go up!

No worries Danny, Curtis, Ron, and I did the trail 8 / lake loop. Those guys are great to ride with. I'm picking up Danny's wife's (Jane) new El Fuego frame tomorrow. It's gonna be cool with 4" travel and purple color.

I'll be working on the 23rd. I got the next 3 days off and I'll probably ride Fri. or Sat. Building up my buddies new Intense Spyder and we'll be taking it for it's maiden voyage.

I saw that Fuego Yesterday. Interesting color!

Bummer on the 23rd, I was planning on doing some video of it. Should be fun and a little cooler than the valley at least.

Have fun building up the bikes.
