    St Patty's Day @ Bootleg

    Is anyone else planning on going to the St Patty's day race up at Bootleg? I think Doo Doo said he was going. Anyone else? I am hoping to hit both the Super D and the Downhill races. I will probaby drive up Friday and drive back on Sunday or Monday. This will be my first race so I am very excited.

    Markskee chiming in I am going and will probably be working quite a bit but as far as where I will be staying looks like the Chumba Bus as of now unless someone is willing to put me up for free on some floor space or in the tub.

    i'll be there with a non racing friend or 3 - it will be my first time to bootleg and first dh race in ~10 years. also, since i'm a BC virgin it would be cool to hook up with some other AZ folks who have some trail time there. i'll be racing beg 30-39.

    i still need to get a room somewhere - any suggestions near the mtn? cheap trumps pretty in this case.

    I prefer the El Rancho. Good size rooms plus if you mention you're there for the race they may cut you a discount. No room for Marskee unless he goes to the strip this time!

    But I do agree with you!!! He won't get space with us unless he rides his damn bike which is rockn' a new Fox 40. Dang the only time I saw that bike go over rock fast was when he lent it out to be used as a demo last time they were here. I told the guy riding his bike that I never seen that particular bike ever go that fast or even go over rocks with out using the brakes. The booth is not that busy to were you can't sneak off for a run down the race course!!!

    We'll see, the backend just got finished, now I am starting to migrate the data from the old site as well as setting up for the new content. I might see if we can film the first podcast at the fishbowl this week, but not sure how that will go since its Two Tones B-Day bash.

    Primitive camping in the dirt lot at the venue. There is water, bathrooms, cold showers and scenic view of the gravel pit.

    We will arrive late Friday. Maybe you early zonies can save a spot for the van.

    Mountain Bike Money

    In case you did not read the above titled thread, Bike Doc has a great idea.

    Mountain Bike Money

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What a lot of you may not know, is that Brent Thomson's job was on the line. It seems that Boulder City had been talking about eliminating his position as Trail Master with the city, as the folks in the city government were of the mind that mountain biking didn't bring much revenue into the city coffer, since they only received $5.00 per rider for events held there, and nothing, directly, from riders visiting during times other than when events were being held. Of course, they also receive something like $8800.00 per year from the folks running the Interbike trade show, for allowing the bike industry to come spend 2 days per year there demoing new bikes and stuff.

    When reminded that many mountain bikers also stay in local motels and eat at local restaurants, and that most arrive with the gas guage falling toward "E" and leave with a full tank, and that a few people rent bikes or bring their own and break them there and THEN get them FIXED there, and that maybe some riders even manage to spend a few more odd dollars there, they responded that they had no way of knowing how much that really added up to, since it was just lumped in with all the other sales tax and room tax they collect.

    SO, they were thinking that perhaps what Brent had done to create a World renouned mountain biking destination, featured in several extreme mountain biking videos and dozens of magazines from every corner of the planet, really wasn't worth the small amount of money and few benefits that they threw his way, and they had been talkjing for quite some time about eliminating his job with the city. Brent had been quite stressed out over the situation with the city for several months. It was actually AFTER the first of this year, that they even told him he had a job for 2009. Dan Haskin and I ( Along with several others) are convinced that this stress contributed to his heart attack on January 10th and his ensuing death.

    SOOO, I say we show them just how much money flows into Boulder City from all of us!
    (Or I should say, from BRENT'S hard work!!!) What I am proposing is that whenever you visit the Bootleg Canyon Trail Network in Boulder City; whether it be this weekend, for Brent's memorial, during Interbike, or anytime; is that instead of using your credit card for purchases there, that you visit the A.T.M. ahead of time, and that you write the words "Mountain Bike Money" on every bill you plan to spend there. Let's flood Boulder City forever, with a stark reminder of what Brent did for their small town, so that even if they didn't fully appreciate his efforts during his lifetime, that they will soon realize, and always remember who and what he really was!!!!!
    Now I DRIVE the short bus!!

    I totally agree with what he's saying about the influx of cash from bikers. I know I never would have stopped in Boulder if not for Bootleg (maybe for gas). It's kinda depressing to think the town doesn't recognize what a positive impact Brent made there...

    Some people recognize us. I just called to book a room at the Hacienda and when I said that I need a room for the weekend the first question from them was "are you here for the bike race?" ........I like that!

    Some pix from the Feast

    What a feast it was. Plenty of sunshine, friends, rippin fast course, and a chance to honor the trail master, Brent Thompson. I took a lot of pix, not really sure how to caption them though.

    The timing was awesome. The times came across an electronic board as soon as you passed the finish line. Results were immediate and the awards even started on time.

    Haven't seen results posted online anywhere yet.

    The race went off without a hitch from what I saw.

    As for me, I had a pretty good crash on my race run (only one of the weekend) Felt like I was having a great run and next thing I know I'm on the ground, not even sure what happened A few people saw it, maybe they can fill in the blanks. Crashing put me near last place of Expert Men.


    Oh well, still had a great weekend!

    The race was awesome!!! Bummed i had to go and crash in the top section in my race run, where my bike decided to tumble a good 15-20 feet off the side of the mountain. Oh well, i had a blast anyways! Props to my cousins Adam and Andy for finishing 3rd and 4th in sport!!! i couldn't believe there was only a couple of seconds between 1st and 3rd.At least they held it down for AZ like so many others out there! It was awesome to hear so many riders from AZ podiumed. Good job guys, and gals!!!

    (purchased)

    The event was super smooth and I had a blast. I just got home half an hour ago. I got a very short ride in today at Boot on some of the lower jump sections and packed it in. I cought up with Crash while I was up there today and he was really impressed how many podium finishes went to the Az riders!!

    Thank you to everyone who made it a great weekend. Big shout out to the base camp crew: Dougie, Ken, Carmen, Lynn, Scott, Taylor, Michael and his lady, and of course the hounds Huck and Ilka!!

    I am expeting to be there on Wed!

    Dougie also scored second place in 18-29 sport. I accepted his trophy for him that is why there is no pics of him on the podium. Unfortunately he went down in the last berm and lost out on first by 1.2 seconds after getting back up and crossing the finish line. Major props for the young gun!!
