    Good job! Shuttle Cocks Unite

    Any posters on here that want to shuttle-up and bomb downhill. I'm talking about Windrock or Clemson or any all downhill course.Surely some of you have a big-bike you don't want to pedal.

    Why I peddled up the road Sunday and rode cove etc but that took 45 mins for 30
    Downhill to the hatchery I could I've gone dowhill twice if i had shuttled it. Some days I want to work for it some days I just want to shred... If we had some better lift serverd bike parks in the area...

    Don't listen to Broussard. He is probably drunk and doesn't know how to shred anyway.

    Cove Creek, that's where it's at

    There will be plenty of people to shuttle Windrock with on the 23rd and 24th. It's not much different then trails in pisgah mentioned except it's steep and rocky.

    and BTW - it's faster to just peddle up the trail and way less dusty than the road
    many gears, some pies

    This is true. But on a good day, I can fold it in half and lightly fray the edges.

    I'm just picking. Ya'll have fun.

    1) I'm more of an XC rider (because I live in Florida and have to be )

    2) Yes they are, we've got some fun freeride stuff too.

    Windrock is always a blast. Most trails from the Ĺ way point are easy to find. If you have never been you will want to shuttle unless you just want to run it once or twice. Itís a paved road unless you go all the way to the top. Most bikes that you can enjoy pedaling up that hill will not be very fun coming down. If you do go on the 16th I would take extra bike parts, steel bead tires, DH tubes, Derailleur, brake levers ect. No matter what I have ever taken, itís always something I did not pack that gets smashed. Windrock is a lot of fun if you enjoy steeps, gaps, and drops. Most are over rocks and usually there is a steep hill to the left or right of these which allow little room for error. None of the gaps are huge (road gap maybe 20-25 ft but thatís the only one that big) most are 10 to 15 ft. The drops are not huge either probably 8 ft max but they have lots of consequence. Windrock does not have many ride able go around. You either have to hit the line or walk in the woods which is probably why it gets talked up so much. Most average + riders will not have a hard time there and if you like true DH I would highly recommend it.

    So far, so good. It was only it's first time out. I had to (and still do) get used to it. I've been on a 09 Cannondale Prep thus far and it was a totally different feel for me. Pedaling efficiency was the biggest difference I noticed right away, wore me out quick and had to use my legs a lot more than what I have become accustom to (I'm old). I need a few more runs to get it nailed down. Prob take it up to Asheville this weekend to mix it up a bit and see how she feels up there.

    I may hit you up when we head that way, it maybe near the first of November.
    BTW how long is the DH run, and can it be easily shuttled?

    Anytime, just let me know.

    It's not that long. I've only been there twice (only been in the state for a month). As for elevation change, I'd say a couple hundred feet (not more than 500ish). Ride time, maybe 2 minutes if I had to guess. There are a couple of flat sections, so be prepared to pedal. It's not DH in the true sense, more a Freeride (hence the name).

    I really don't think it's worth shuttling, by the time you get everything loaded up and out to the road, you could have walked/pushed it.

    WOW! Very cool! I heard there was an upcoming announcment, but didn't know that's what it would be.

    To answer your question, yep, that's where it's gonna be.

    I wonder if they are going to make some improvements or additions, other than the new wall ride (which is great BTW... nice job guys).

    FYI, there is a slalom course there too, a very small pump track, and a few jumps on the side. Slalom is in good shape, it looked like the PT and side jumps needed some love. The DH course is in good shape as they held there college race there a couple weeks ago.
