    Crap I am out for racing I didnt think about testing something. I went and rode around and jumped pulled front endup anything i might need to do on the bike but didnt think about lifting it on my car. I cant lift it past my chest. #-o I think I am going to still drive out watch some practice and check things out and find out what I can do about the fees I already payed.

    yeah pics just dont tell the tale there Sharky!
    Standing at the gauntlet is far more fun and exciting. Pics just dont give the full impression of it.....
    For those who are sacking up and going expert to ride it bring your A-game if your not sure if you should move up then you probably arent ready to run this one. Basing a DH course by Donny then throwing this out there youd guess someone else set it up that had crashing in mind. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
    This course reminds me of why I love DH.
    It even brought a smile to EC, followed by yeah theres some steep stuff there and a grin again.

    I am officially confirmed as a maybe for this race ](*,)

    Got an appointment with the knee Doc today at 13:00 so we shall see. Just an old injury that I aggravated three weeks ago and then again yesterday on the trail so it is acting up a bit more then usual.:-({|=

    I may show up either way and if the pharmaceuticals do their job I will race but this is definitely going to be a last minute call.

    Oh yeah, thanks for the pics Sharky, looks fun

    :beer:

    the turns are/were designed that way.....if your in the lead and you leave the inside completely wide open you should get block passed.

    in the past we have had so many 1 lined courses...this will (in theory) force the lead rider to protect the inside line at the expense of exit speed,allowing for the 2nd through 4th place riders to pass with better straightaway speed.

    i wish i could have had more time to finish the whole course as well as the stuff on the bottom that is changed....that was only a day and a half of work and it just doesn't have the polished touch i like to give it....but i think it will race good and have a lot of passing?

    guess we will see?
