    HIP Weekend

    Great weekend guys, and congrats to the winners of the frames. Ya'll owe the waiter a tip for pulling your ticket. Thought I would get a new thread started for pics and reports. I've started going thru the pictures and trying to get the ride profiles uploaded so I'll start the HIP Weekend with this



    Spy photo of the new Double Double Barrel shock.

    I was just wondering if that shot sequence came out ok. Picture number 2 is my new background! I will have my pics up in the morning if all goes well.

    Holy brake fires - looks like you fell off a cliff on Bent Creek between mile 6 and 7.

    Not sure what that is, I think my GPS may have lost it's signal for a minute.

    Friday's ride I took my point & shoot camera and none of the shots came out very well so I'm hoping someone else has some. Here's a few from Laurel on Saturday.

    The meet at Sycamore Cycles



    A little break almost to the top, what follows is some of the nastiest hike-a-bike you'll ever do.







    Great downhill run, plenty of big rocks and tight switchbacks.





















    Flat time....

    A few from Dupont on Sunday. We were pressed for time to get started on the way home so I didn't get many photos.

    Looks like you guys had a blast at Dupont. I am really sorry I wasn't able to make it out that morning. I ended up getting in a real time crunch to get home for some family business. That place is some great flow to end the weekend with.

    Walk/Rolled out. Luckily where it happened was all downhill to Jim's (CC's Engineer) truck, and he took him to the hospital.

    He took it like a champ.
