    Need stoke?

    We, I mean the Bandoleros, plan on leaving a bit of skin at the Paj this weekend. Who's going?

    ...here is some stoke for ya'!

    Stoked!

    I'm stoked and that video gets me even more stoked ! I actually can't help but being stoked every time Pajarito is going to be open. I had a nightmare last night: I dreamt my watch was off and I missed the first two runs of the day .

    LA riders except those who may be racing at Sol Vista will be here. Chris M. went to Keystone for the weekend to work in his newly heeled scapula. Rich S. will be here.

    Well, another two weeks and we've got another new trail. This one isn't completely finished but half of it is well benched in and the other half is roughed in enough for us to try it out. It's the intermediate trail that starts where Sidewinder starts and traverses over to the top of Air Raid and Air Born. It should make it easier to go from east to west at the top and will eventually have a bunch of cool features like tabletops built into it. It should have really good flow with good berms too.

    Here's the start looking up (Sidewinder is on the left next to the blue sign):

    It's been so long, I forgot what time the lift opens. Is it 0900 or 1000?

    9 AM - 3PM.

    I forgot to mention: If you guys are coming early or staying till Sunday Guaje Canyon was totally cleared last weekend. Guaje Ridge is clear of logs but full of locusts.

    RCC will be headed up to Camp May today ( maybe myself this evening ) with his moto. Maybe you could direct him to some good trails Neil? The rest of the crew will be arriving somewhere around 8:30. Will look for you to show us the goods!

    If by "moto" you're talking off-road motorcycle there's nothing you can hit from Camp May because the Canada Bonita trail to Pipeline is closed to motorized vehicles. The best bet would be to drive to the Pajarito trail head in Rendija canyon and go from there. This should get you to the trailhead: http://www.trailheadfinder.com/trail_editor/show/452

    Very Cool Bryan,
    It'll be great to see you guys, Hopefully a good turn-out. New intermediate trail should be fun when its finished (probably not hard enough to send Bruce OTB) The jumptrail (named Airborne or Sky Pilot) looked very good yesterday, very rained in and fast I also started some stuff for next year in the new Giant Ski Terrain Park - It will be the NEXT GENERATION of Pajarito FR/Slopestyle

    Looks sweet Neal, I'm stoked about it, a good flowy intermediate trail with some tabletops is right up my alley. I'll be there. I can't wait to try it out.

    Don
    (who you met two weeks ago the last time the Paj Majal was open on Sunday)
    P.S. Send Rich my thanks, I know those tabletops take a lot of work to build.
    Fall in Fruita/GJ. F' yeah! Lunch Loops are riding sweet and so is everything else.

    The new intermediate ones aren't too hard since small jumps are pretty quick - I'm not using the back-hoe on the intermediate trail though so there's alot of hard pick axing across the grass slopes. Now the big jumps line is tough because even though its cleared by back hoe there's hours of dirt shoveling by hand

    BTW the new trail is only cut in at certain spots so PROCEDE AT YOUP OWN RISK

    No stoke needed..

    Picture perfect day and what Neil and Rich have done up there is something to be admired. I truly hope that the community realizes the efforts that go into engineering this kind of venue and rallies this to be an ongoing effort. As many of you have realized there are places that are just as receptive as 'Paj', including his own finds, and Rich may not be available to maintain the momentum. Just a thought! Either way, I enjoyed today relaxing with friends, some new, some old, and taking in some good FR..thanks Fellas!

    BTW...the little ( BIG ) Rock Roller claimed some victims today! And I personally saw notaknob OTB twice

    Highlight!

    Found knob lurking over in the Passion forum. Seems he captured a quite rare event on film...

    What do you guys call this thing? Please note that RCC is probably the most photogenic when the **** hits the fan. Notice the smile in the last three frames

    Pics from Pajarito 8-30-08

    Here's a few I got. The first one's are captures off my camera video. The name of that run is Natrual Selection but I don't think we have a name for the rock rollers. Although they're not drops they kinda remind me of Chicken F..er in Silverton.

    RCC, Natural Selection, 1st Rock :
    RCC1stRock.jpg

    MTB123, Natural Selection, 1st Rock. I didn't notice this when I took the video but man, that had to have hurt
    MTB1231stRock.jpg

    MTB123, Natural Selection, 2nd Rock, redemption, especially since I forgot to get a finger on a brake and broke my visor just after this
    MTB1232ndRock.jpg

    RSClimb, Natural Selection, 2nd Rock, fully compressed.
    RSNS2ndRock.jpg

    Patrick at the end of Triple Threat. Just after I took this shot he would have hit me standing next to the tree if I hadn't jumped
    PatrickTripleThreat.jpg

    Ben at the end of Airborne. This trail was running smooth today Ben and I both got it dialed by the end of the day

    I gotta tell ya', your son is impressive. You must be an exceptionally proud parents. The whole family indeed, good peeps!

    I was lucky that I had a decent roll-out when I flubbed on #1, but that stump 'on center' @ the #2 roller is nas-s-s-sty

    I laughed when I saw that last picture. RCC is still tumblin, but everyone's looking to see how far his bike rolls.

    Edit: Found the last one. Notice, no bike in picture.

    takes a likin' and keeps on tickin'...

    That is a Turner for ya! The RFX was ready for a 3rd run, but I guess the rider wasn't. Funny that no one asked RCC if he was OK until the bike stopped cartwheeling. Guess 'cause he had a shite-eatin' grin the whole time.

    Look at Ruby! Even in one of the earlier pics, her body language best describes the scene. "CRING"

    Thanks Brian, we actually have had really awesome community support for everything at the ski hill. The scene has grown a lot in the last few of years. Everyone in town loves coming up for biking, hiking, partying, and just enjoying the cool summer weather in the trees. ABQ and SF riders have made our lift days an important event on their calendars too. The ski hill has come a long ways towards supporting our trail building efforts and they're looking forward to working with us on some more big trails like a dual slalom and a top notch downhill course. Those will probably be designed by ABQ riders and built by the ski hill and us volunteers.

    I thought this one was pretty funny. Compare my shot to this one:


    One could be captioned "oh crap", while mine is "oooh, that tire feels good"

    More like the look of someone who just had their 'ghost' leave momentarily and the suddenly return. It is a lot different than taking any of the drops up there as you are momentarily pitched at about 80 degrees free falling and no way to correct yourself without some help from the tranny.

    There is your redemption...

    Rich pointed that out on the way up and it looks very intimidating even from a hundred yards away. Don't think I will be rolling up to that anytime soon.

    Perfect day at Pajarito. Thanks everybody for spurring me on--I think I was blasting those trails faster than I've ever gone.... And thanks, of course, for the priceless entertainment. RCC's crash was impressive! Even if I did miss notaknob going OTB...oh well, there's always next time!

    That's good to hear. Don't let him give up at that stuff you guys were rockin the place.
    Hopefully we'll see the bandelleros up there at least once more before closing. BTW keep posting your great adventure rides (the other HEART of FR)
