****ing terrible. the expert course got even worse than it was yesterday (which i didnt know was possible) and there were alot of injuries and crashes. I personally lost cout of my crashes in my race run it was so many. 5 or 6 is my guess, but absolutely everony fell. i finished fourth in jr x which is dissapointing.

I raced sport... and found the sport course a bit too simple.. and the flat/uphill section was super lame.. The course was super fast, and I did def enjoy it overall.. but there was far too little technical stuff in it.. The pro/expert course was ok.. but it really didnt seem to flow that nicely.. i rode it sat morning, all wet... I rode down most of it fine, but i wasnt too psyched on it.. (probably mostly cauz of the wetness- was super steep and rooty and wet... bad combo) Overall people b*tched way too much this weekend about the courses.. I didnt necessarily love the sport course but i still had a good time.. if you dont like it, its probably cauz its something you suck at... so suck it up and get better at it. I got really sick of all the whining going on.

:madman: you are retarded. we are pretty much all better riders than you, and the majority agreed that that is not a race course. if everyone in my class (jr x) fell atleast twice, there is something majorly wrong.

Anyone hear how the races went at Plattekill today? Hopefully it was a safe and fun day. I went up Saturday and had a blast. The amateur course needed a little more technical to it, but even with the rain, I thought it was a great day...
Tough course, very steep, very wet.......challenging for sure. Sunday was beautiful, the Saturday rain seemed to put a damper on the course and a few attitudes.

Come back when you grow up. Better rider then me?- Little cocky aye? How is a "race course" supposed to be defined? There are plenty of people that would have LOVED that trail as a race course. Just because you didnt doesnt mean others didnt.(and if you read my message and stopped being ignorant you would have seen I agree'd with you for the most part about the course) There was plenty of pro's that loved the course though.. From what I have heard ( i have not raced there before) that is the kind of courses you expect at plattekill. One of the pro's I know and his friends were happy about the course... saying it was back to plattekills real race courses.. SOO... if you dont like how platty does their courses, become pro-active(IE, help design courses and not whine), or go somewhere else..
