I had a great time in Ruidoso. Making the drive from San Antonio was well worth the trip. The free hotel that carl and jamie provided helped me nurse my wounds moreso than if I was camping out.
Every single person riding that weekend, 15-20 approx, was pushing their limits and going bigger and bigger. For some, there weren't stunts big enough.
We went to Quarters niteclub one night in Ruidoso and I have to say everyone there was in an exceptionally happy mood (as it should be). So much so that I wish I could have had what they were somking or imbibing. New Mexico is an awesome state and a MTBr's dream. Lots of potential with lots of great people willing to help promote the sport.
The LBS was there to represent and give out free pizza, snacks and soft drinks. All in all it was a perfect weekend with perfect weather and great people out living life.
If anyone wants their pic. emailed let me know. You can print it out later. I have more, but apparently reached my limit with this post. these are only a few.
Thanks! Looks a little tame though, relative to the Well etc.
Yeah it was tame compared to The Well but you guys only see the HUGE stuff we post about the well. Most people can't hit the biggest Well stuff and we rarely shoot any of the old smaller stuff. There was a real good vibe at Ruidoso and everyone had a blast - Thats' what a FR jam is really about (just like the good times when you guys hit up Pajarito) There was a good mix of easy and hard stuff and The Donkey Punch (below) was a pretty good size hit. Also all the trails, jumps and shuttle runs were pretty fun
Hey are Bandelleros coming out to The Well this Saturday?
