    Sea Otter pics

    After driving for five hours and riding for six hours yesterday I was not too excited about driving another two plus hours to Sea Otter, starting at 5 am this morning under threatening skies. However, the bushing on my shock just went out and I was told that the Fox guys would fix it for free. And they did! The XC photo ops consisted of watching people start and finish on a paved race track, so I only took a few photos of that. However, I did manage to get a bunch of photos of Mountain Cross. The weather was not too bad until about noon, at which time it began to sprinkle a bit. About a half hour later it started raining so I packed up my photo gear and left. More photos posted on my site.
    <p align="center"><img border="4" src="http://arnica.csustan.edu/mtbike/SeaOtter/Images/_mg_3677.jpg"><br>
    Thank you Mr. Fox for fixing my shock!

    All my Sea Otter photos ended up being from inside bars or outside free beer tents around the venue..... that's strange.
    Anyone get any pictures of the awesome MC's at the mtbr raffel this year? Those guys rocked.

    I went. Couldn't register to race, already full. Lame. Started to rain. went home. does anyone else feel that the sea Otter is only about the $$$. $60 for a camp site (which is a small piece of parking lot)...come on.

    anyways good pics...why don't they move it to May?

    No hit. I have a six photo sequence. The kid in black went way wide around the downed rider and ended up stuck in that dirt pile on the lower left.

    Great pics,Wherewolf! I like how you've captured the impending doom of crashing.
    My favorite bike at Sea Otter was this one:

    Looks like the mountain cross track held up well

    I heard the original site of the Mx ate 4 tractors so they had to move it to this site. When we left on Saturday evening, they were still building it. Great shots...

    I have nearly 400 photos of the MX and most were taken from the side, not the front. So few numbers are visible. I need an exact description, including colors, of your helmet, shirt and pants. I don't know many bikes so just give me the color.

    Hey Hey Ricardo!

    Did you ride at Sea Otter as well? My buddie saw you there, and like most folks, he was fascinated with your Beemer rack system.

    FYI - that really light front wheel you built & sold to me (black Mavic 225 w/ Onyx hub) is still straight as ever. Had my doubts, but so far so good. Thanks for the hook up.

    actually i was just playing "Posser' since I have a Fubar Knee and I can varelly walk much less Unclip from the pedals

    even with a "wodden-leg" it was fun for sure...

    well what do you spect,..!?!?
    i don't play around when I build things (well i do but in a good way) put it this way I have wheels still rolling for 10 years if not more and after being trash and trash again they are as straight as the day i build them, is all about the passion and the care you take when you build them super slow but made to last for ever.

    ride it with total confidence and if something happends let me know

    How is riding with the rack+bike? Not too much trouble wih side wind etc?

    Don Hombre Muy macho do you live in san francisco ,,,?
    i'm in berkeley just acrosss the bridge..

    the ride is for sure dificult, actually the wind is not much of a problem but full loaded the bike is really prone to get little on the front end, specially at stop lights it feels like you need a willyebar like this
