    Vegas biking in March

    I have recently reserved a room in Las Vegas, NV for March 23rd to 27th (Wednesday to Sunday) to do some downhilling/freeriding/cross country/dirt jumping at Bootleg Canyon (http://www.bootlegcanyon.com) during the day and some Vegas fun at night. We should get a group together and do a road trip down there. The drive can definitely be done in a day and the room cost an average of $55 / night for double occupancy. We're staying just off the strip at a casino/hotel that looks to be pretty cool.

    You Rock Pounder Racing guys should definitely make this trip if you can. It will be a blast!

    Attached photo is simply one I found on the Nevada Forum here from the Poopchute trail there at Bootleg Canyon.

    Check out the other post for a trip scheduled March 9-13ish.

    But if it's gotta be those dates, it's gotta be those dates. I just got an email from Gene Hamilton. He'll be holding a DH race camp there March 24-26, and 28-30. If I had the time and money, I'd do it.

    Bottom line, no matter when you go, or who you go with, it's gonna be a blast!!
    I have no idea what I'm talking about...But yeah, that sounds about right.

    Here's the link to his site

    Here's the body of the email updating the dates and costs:

    The days are getting a little longer and race season will be here before you know it. I have a few downhill camps coming up at Bootleg Canyon this spring that would be a great way to get a head start on the season.

    Mar. 24-26 Boulder City, NV BetterRide Downhill Skills Camp

    Mar. 28-30 Boulder City, NV BetterRide Downhill Skills Camp

    April 22-24 Boulder City, NV BetterRide Downhill Skills Camp

    All camps are only $325.00 including 3 days of shuttle service and all Bootleg Canyon Fees. These camps are limited to 7 riders each to assure the optimal coach/rider ratio so sign up soon.

    Create your best season ever by mastering core riding skills, training better and smarter than your competition.

    Thanks,

    Gene

    You guys only gonna hit BC when you're out there or what? There's other riding I'd wanna hit as well if I go...Cottonwood, cowboy trails, and hopefully hookup with a local for some other goods....

    That being said Bootleg has some good riding, majority of which is over my head....

    I'm only going to ride for three days, and I was thinking probably riding Bootleg for at least two of those. I haven't ridden out there before so I don't know what the other stuff is like.
