    Beggin' for change...

    Is there a cap on the number of participants again this year?

    I think we've rounded up a squad. Looks like it will be a joint venture between the Abq Bando's and the SF Wrekin' Crew. We are looking for Sponsors!

    Until they get their site up below is a bunch of info that was e-mailed to me that I had posted on a different thread. I just registered Ben, Julian, and myself as "The Screaming Squirrels". Registration is already up to 35 (as of 7:40pm, 9/13/09). I gotta get me some lights

    The Red Bull Burner is on for October 10th! They will have a Final Descent freeride day on the 11th.

    Categories:
    Solo - Mens/Womens Pro and Mens/Women's Expert
    Duo - Pro & Expert - any mix of two riders
    Team - Open Class - any mix of 3-4 riders

    Costs:
    $80 for solo, $70 for duo(per person), $60 for team(per person)

    Rules:
    Riders will have 3 options down the mountain, which can be picked at your discretion....obviously if there are faster riders coming, you need to move over.

    Size of this year's event:
    It will be bigger, but not much. We have to limit riders due to what we feel will be safe and provide a good flow. The race is limited to 150 entries.....and I'm thinking we will get a few big names in there......

    When will website be up:
    Crossing my fingers it will be up over the next couple of days
    http://www.redbullburner.com/

    Producer of event:
    This is a Red Bull event, and Bigfoot (Mountain States Cup) is helping produce it.

    Stuff for families and support people during the day:
    We will have music/food/drinks at the base.....and whatever else we come up with between now and then.

    Registration is now up at http://www.bikereg.com/events/register.asp?eventid=9353

    I've got an old-tech one I can loan you.


    Geoman's local and can set you up with some budget blinders or break your bank.

    There was a thread awhile back on him here. Careful on clicking on that link, the thread deteriorated rapidly
    See the trails, be one with FOO-MTB.

    "Be Advised"

    They WILL NOT let you on the lift after sundown if you do not have capable lights. Meaning the better be pretty good. I actually think my 'ecolocator' works better than knobs single-lumen lantern.

    You'd have to ask Lidarman but from what I understand this is by far the highest output night light for the $. I got it from http://www.geomangear.com/. I was hoping to check it out last night but it didn't come yet . Hopefully I'll have it today.

    No.

    One of these DIY designs will hold the mantel of brightest bike lights, but not for another week or two. This is probably the one that'lll be the brightest.

    I've got one of these on order, but it won't make it here for the Burner. It should push a bit over 2k lumens with the ability to focus the beam with different lenses.
    See the trails, be one with FOO-MTB.

    Checked out his website, pretty nice looking lights.

    Got any specs on that light you're buying, including price? Didn't see anything on his site.

    PM or email me if you don't want potential muggers knowing what your trick new lights are worth.

    Shirts look great guys. Go get 'em!

    When will you be rolling through town?

    Time for a quick homebrew?

    I am going to be in Taos Canyon most of the day doing a Capulin to Divisidero ride.

    You better drive fast, it's 7 now and it is a 2.3 hour drive to Taos. Cops have been sitting in Pilar almost every day, careful through there, the county is way short on funds.

    9am beer is good.
