    time hit it up! sick dirt jumps w/ concrete lips (always the same)
    super sick dh runs w/drops,jumps, flow and speed.bring your
    own shuttle or some gas$ cuz theres no lift, just a dirt road

    I had heard the gathering was later in Nov. I can't find it listed on their web. Does anyone have the confirmed date?
    Can't keep track anymore - Giant, Santa Cruz, Pivot, Yeti, Norco, Salsa, Intense - if it rolls on dirt I like it

    bwahahahaha..I just tossed the idea out to my gf and her initial reaction was hell no (shes paying for the weekend in vegas) then she thought it might be funny to get me hammered then send me off to try to ride. I think my final answer it that I'll be too drunk to ride.
    Is there going to be riding out there all winter though? because I've only heard good things about bootleg and really really want to get out there sometime to ride.

    Just teasin'.
    I lived in Vegas for 3 years, so the thrill is gone.

    You're probably better off stayin' on foot on The Strip and stumblin around in a stupor than getting in a car. People drive like @-holes there.

    we are flying in thursday night....cheaper than the gas to drive out there in my Jeep. taking a taxi to the hotel then walking the rest of the weekend. we will have one car at our disposal if we want to drive anywhere. a few friends are driving out. I've done my fair share of driving through vegas too. my band has played out there quite a few times. hauling atrailer around there when its busy is interesting.

    More like freakin' scary. I used to drive 2 miles to work there everyday, and I feared death every inch of the way.

    you must be talking about the xc,

    of the trails on my dh rig....
    E.C. and others said they would not race
    down ginger at the end o season race last
    year. too "hairball"......

    well, i may not be as fast as eric but i still don't find the trails difficult.....
    the most difficult thing IMO is maintaining traction over the gravel at speed......

    agreed, telluride is steep and challenging but those gnarly
    rocks and the exposure and the steepness at the top i
    found very challenging to ride at speed- i love high speed
    drifty stuff, but those rocks are sharp up top...the races
    have a rad vibe to them- rootsy -
    04 rampage stories??
    anyone?

    Good ole Manny Vargas. Yeah it's funny I've met up with him a couple times this year at BigBear. Surprised the heck outta me to see him DHing. I used to sponge it up back in the day before the crowds got outta hand. Sweet.

    ya admittedly have fallen out of the sponging scene the last couple years. Manny seems like a really cool guy though I havn't had a chance to meet him in person yet. I'm sure I will when the Fontana series starts. I've met a good few of the six pack riders and so far everyone is cool a couple of them from OC are going to start riding with us.
