It looks awesome and I'm a big fan of the shop. I hear Mondays are the night. I've also heard its maybe not the best for a noob to PT. but its just down the street from work so super convenient for me.

I was gonna put flats on my SantaCruz Blur and tighten up the shock. Best I got for a first try...

any thoughts? much appreciated.

ps: yes, I am a follower :)

I was out there watching a few weeks ago on a Monday, and I've agreed to go again this next Monday. It's a fun time, even just watching. (I'm far from brave/ready to try it myself just yet. I'll go in the middle of the day, when nobody can witness me eating dirt and cinderblock...)

I did watch a newbie go from all over the place and incapable of completing a lap, to knocking it out as the night wore on.

I can't believe how fast the regulars ride that thing. :thumbsup:

If I can ride it, anyone can get the hang of it. Sucks I gotta miss this Monday though...

Right after the shop closes and the sun lets up a bit. Probably be some guys doing maint. before that, takes a lot of prep to get the dirt tacky and patch holes....

C'mon out Cholla, you'll dig it. True it can be a little tricky to ride at speed but only one way to learn.....

I should be out there doin the regular Monday night thing. Missed last week with pneumonia, BLEH. But all better now....sort of

schedulez with the missus have been coordinated, i have spent the last 3 hrs doing laundry, shopping for curtains, and sewing -- this is the currency in my house! thanks all y'all for the encouragement, it will be good to have some friends out there to show me the way! cool to have something to get psyched about on a Monday :thumbsup:

It's a good time Chollaball, I'm sure you'll like it. After a few times around the track you'll get the hang of it.

Nice cholla!!! you'll get it sooner than later!

Had a great night for our first time out there. The tracks a little tall for my little one but he got along just fine. Someday he'll be one of those kids on a 20" sending it. Here's a video I got of him before he sprayed burkhart in the head with the hose and had to leave:)
Thanks RAGE for the ripping track! See you next Monday!

Definitely a Monday night tradition. I may actually even ride it soon, once I cut my teeth over at McDowell Pump Track. :D

Great time. Watching the tiny dude made me ovulate all night! SO cute. Raise 'im up right, LDB! :thumbsup:

Chollaball had it down by his second or third lap. He's being humble. :)

Very cool seeing your little ripper, Bob. He get's my vote for most impressive rider of the night. :thumbsup:

Hope to make more sessions. Fun crew, fun riding.
