    Sounds like Windrock might have been "fun" Sunday... Give us a report!

    When we got there we noticed that there seemed to be alot of injury's from Saturday . 75 riders showed up Saturday, there was a huge raffle( I-9 wheels,Armor, Helmets).
    Sunday was Cruso414's first Windrock experience, after the first run he had some information overload and had to take a 5 minute break to download all the "nar" that he saw on his first run.We ran the lower section that splits into 10-15 different trails.This place makes Farlow Gap seem like Patton Ave.

    Second run......half way down he started gettin in a groove and hucked off the side of a ladder drop and drifted into the loose dusty chatter on the side of the trail and washed out. As he was going down he stuck his leg out and "POP" there goes the knee

    Me and Huckdaddy- Bmbass- did a few more runs to honor Cruso's first time at Windrock, while he iced his wound.
    I saw 6 flat tires, one tacoed rim and several other broke bikes, you better have a 40lb+ 8 inch travel tankbike cause Windrock would gobble up a xc bike!

    My crew broke a bunch of stuff too. A leaky brake, blown out brand new Marz 66, a broken DOPE brake mount, and Jay completely wrecked his chain guide casing a small gap on Snakerock, and Larry also tore open the lowers of his RS Totem in a wreck. I managed to escape major injury and bike breakage despite wrecking 3 times on Old Windmill.. that trail is unbelievable. After taking a few runs I loosened up and tuned my setup a little better and was feeling more confident. I hit most all of the features on Snakerock which I was pretty pleased about. Hopefully I'll have some pics and vids soon. I saw a lot of really hard wrecks and broken stuff. People were riding hard and some people were absolutely pinning it out there. I'm impressed, and had a great time.

    Hope you rode Southern Rocks, which gave me this souvenir. And no, I did not wreck...just rolling along it ate it.
    Same happened to Mooney. It took half of his Gamut bash guard, but we rode out together upright....weird.

    C
    Who is this cruso414 person that you speak of?

    Either way, he has an appointment with an orthopedist in the morning.....it's not sounding promising for much winter riding. Just this cruso fella's luck, gets a 50lb Turner beast with 8 inches of travel and the first 12 foot drop he hits, BAM his knee explodes.

    The great thing about it is that cruso414 won the award for having the heaviest bike at windrock. Second place went to the guy who nearly cut his man member off in a crash.

    Windrock is by FAR the nastiest stuff east of the mississippi.

    Props to Moto for hitting the wood to wood gap for the first time, BIG AIR BABY!

    My totem was a casualty as well... was puking some serious oil after the first few runs. I just took it into SEX all covered in oil and as I walked through the door Kevin said, "Let me guess, Windrock!" Haha, That place is good for his business, he had a few others getting nursed from their battle wounds attained at fall fest.

    Southern Rocks makes Farlow look like explorer loop.

    Which section is Southern Rocks? I think I rode most of what's out there this weekend I just can't really put a name to some of it. We definitely broke a ton of stuff and wrecked a lot but had a blast. I will invest in a pressure suit if I head back there for sure.

    Trail to the far, far right when descending from half-way point that doesn't have any dirt on it.

    Riding my bike on Patton Avenue is much more dangerous than Farlow.
    That is all.

    I told you that you could ride it since I won't be riding anything for the next little while. Just remember that it might be way too much bike for you. 8.5 inches will boldly go where no man has gone before.

    Did we ride together? I do remember seeing a green 4runner, although I don't remember anything about who was riding in it.

    I was the guy sitting in the green 4runner with my leg hanging out the door. I only got in 1 1/2 runs in before my knee exploded. Guess maybe I should have rode the DHR a few times before attempting the gnariest shite east of the rockies.
