    That's pretty far away from Norco, LA, but nice trail I guess.

    Spillway Interactive Trail Map

    The Spillway just went virtual... attached .kmz file to load in Google Earth. We'll be updating pics and videos as time goes on. This should really give those who never rode the trail an insight to how it is.

    the weather was absolutely perfect for the Demo and TT ... decent turn out for both events and the trail is in primo shape ... the Trek Crew did an awesome job, but they did make me return the Rumblefish II when it was over. I would have liked to race it at the TT ... thats one sweet ride

    Time Trial #3

    another good turnout for the Time Trail at the Spillway ... even though we started earlier the heat was still a beast ...TimT did a great job with the new course layout and Brandon did 2 laps and still set a new record ... rumor has it that they will start even earlier next month

    105 in the shade

    We had a good turn out considering the heat and all. Saw a few rabbits and I ran over one huge snake. The trail is really dry and sandy but overall its in great shape.

    Found

    I got in a few laps today and I found someone's bike computer on the trail, if you can identify it I will make sure it gets back to you. PM me with a description.
    There are trees down right before the Speed Bump and right before the AMF section and there are a few others on the trail but you can go around them til they are removed. Watch the corners they are slick and slimy since it rained.

    Zoke - You said "trees" as in plural - more than one? I only saw one tree down on Sat. which was easy enough to bunny hop over with speed.

    I'm assuming the trail might have gotten some rain yesterday, we had a nasty storm pass through yesterday evening. I heard Sunday the trail was dry for the most part. If it stays as hot as it is today over the next few days it ought to be primo for the weekend (other than brutal hot). C'mon cold fronts!!!

    Rode yesterday evening and the trail is in nice shape. Tacky with no standing water.

    Downed tree at the end of S Canada is the only real issue. Aside from that its just small debris here and there. Basic clean up type stuff.

    Trials in good shape. Two down trees but the chain saw took care of that Rhys is an artist with a weed eater. He went from the trail head all the way to the end of the pipeline and back. Just covered in little pieces of cut up vegetation. Steve had a hedge trimmer on a pole and took out every face slapper from Dan's trail to the turn around and me and Brian rode the trail and cleared out all the rest of the face slappers with machetes.Little muddy on the return but ridable.

    2010 Spillway Scramble

    Nomambo and friends did a great job with the event, the weather was great and it looks like everyone had a good time. It was good to see a few more women racers out there and TimT did a some unique work on the trophies. They had some really nice artwork and wood carvings that were raffled off and yep there was a lot of food for everyone. Here are a few pics

    ^ Cool! I never knew NOAMBO did races out at the Spillway!

    I rode the spillway just over a week ago with my Girlfriend for the first time in over a year and the conditions were GREAT! So much better than Memorial Park in Houston Texas where I rode over the labor day weekend. I was kinda disappointed they took out the see-saw though...
