    Boise to Bogus Bonzai Tree Ride

    Today we did the Boise to Bogus Bonzai, named after the miniature tree. It involved a lot of up.


    I went for another ride with the Earthpig, the AMERICAN LEGEND.


    We encountered the Bogus to Boise Banzai, which appeared to involve some down.
    We sat at a corner where we hoped to see some carnage. Sadly no.
    The first guy was in lycra, was on a hardtail, and didn't upclip.


    The next few guys were in lycra, but they unclipped.


    Then came the baggy trail riders on their long travel sleds.


    Then came the dudes dressed up as rejects for a Mad Max remake.


    There was some skidding, but never enough. The wankers really need to crank their rear brake more.


    Towards the tail...


    Then we rode some good trails and some not so good trails. It invloved a lot of down. We ran into the Hucksters along the way. When it was almost over the Piggy took a nice long wizz. A Vista Piss as it were. Ahhhh.

    All of those baggy pants wearing riders needs to read this:

    We'll have them in lycra soon enough.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Fat guys in lycra make me think of sausage casing.

    Memo to guy wearing the "Volvo" lycra shorts: Just don't.

    Fun Race

    It must have been fun watching those first few individuals Bonzai by you at breakneck speeds. I find it impressive the winner posted 40 minutes. My 57 minutes seemed fast to me. However, I must be really slow to only be reaching the painful summit of Eagleson while the winner crossed the finish line at 8th and Hulls. The Bonzai was a very fun and crazy race to participate in. The event organizers did a great job with everything.

    Sadly I did not get to race the banzai this year due to impaling myself in the stomach with my brake lever during my faster than darren lightfield DH run.

    How the hell does that work? I crash and put my brake lever several inches into my abdomen and I still was fastest expert...

    Well the finish line was improperly marked, and in a last ditch effort to make it through the timing lights, I laid the bike down and crashed hard. But I made it!!!

    haha.

    Next year the banzai is mine.

    Have to give kudos to those who rode the DH course at bogus it is definatly super technical and challenging and has some sections that take your breath away. I attempted the course on sunday afternoon by myself and was challenged to say the least.

    It is impressive to have such a hard DH course close to town, I would say this course is far more challenging than the norba DH course at deer valley.
    Live to ride!

    Not Deer Valley hard

    But Deer Valley is stupid hard and not fun to ride, especially not fun to ride fast. Bogus DH trail is goodness.

    Awesome post. Great pics.

    Just one comment. The trees are "Bonsai" (boan-sai) trees, not bonzai.

    Aloha,

    It said "saggy" not "baggy" Eric! Death before lycra (at least for my chicken legs).

    directions

    Go to the upper lodge, climb up to the top of the lift above the tennis courts, and ride down the cat track for a couple hundred yards till you see it on your right. Walk it first, its no joke.

    That course is godly.

    I love it because although it is a bit tech in places, I can rip it the whole way and not let off a bit. I felt super comfy hauling ass on it, and it just was a blast. I wish I could ride it again this season

    None of what you said is true. The results of said race are here.... http://www.wildrockies.com/results/KamikazeResults.pdf. You're not the fastest expert. You crashed because the finish line markers weren't spaced far enough apart for your enormous head/ego. When will you ever learn.
