    I don't mind highjacking threads or even rape them...

    Actually I'll stop doing it until our demands are met.

    We're going to play the "Pancho Villa" with this site until them. We're freaking dangerous indeed.

    Count me in...

    Mexican Mafia Gathering

    While we're at it. Let's start the ball rolling for a Mexican Mafia Gathering in the spring.

    Where? When? etc.

    I'd suggest sometime around Semana Santa as I'm working most Saturdays, and I have 3 full weekends off then.

    I hear there is some nice riding around Valle de Bravo. We could camp or even rent a cabin there. Or does anyone have suggestions closer to D.F. (where most of us seem to be).

    Vamanos Cabrones!

    Valle de Bravo sounds excelent. I haven't made the trip around the lake, but I heard that it's very good and very demanding. It would be fun if we could do some camping while we're there..

    Rocky Rene (not me) is friend of Zooperbike's (LBS, for those out of the local scene) owner. He knows the trails around Valle de Bravo.

    We can invite him as a guide.

    Dates proposed by Tigerdog seem fine to me. Just please avoid the first two weekends of March. My cousin is getting married at my hometown.

    Just for clarification....

    The Mexican Mafia is a well established delinq.... ur, biking organization with no other purpose but riding and having a Mexico Board.

    Its leadership falls on the shoulders of El Vaquero Ingles (aka Tigerdog) and the rest of us are just puppets in his hands, uh, I mean we're his ruthless henchmen. The guys on the pic on the Turner board are his bodyguards. They don't ride. They just shoot at the people who tries to pass Tigerdog on the trails... they're that bad.

    I don't have any storage place... otherwise I'd already have one for just freaking around with wife and kid included.

    Or maybe I would just borrow Tiger's... that would be serious singlespeed stuff.

    I would like to express my solidarity with with Mexican (Discussion Board) Mafia, for no other reason than I'm sort of passively curious about what mountainbiking opportunities there are in Mexico within a few hours of Tucson.

    /was that a thread-jack?

    No threadjack at all...

    It should be cool riding up there. I was at Hermosillo and while it's freaking plain and too hot/cold (depending on the time of the day and season of the year) the mountains that can be seen up north should be terrific places to ride.

    There's the Sierra close where it's said to have deers and stuff, so I assume it's mountany. Ask a bit around... it should be a great riding spot.

    Hola, me agrada mucho la idea de mostrar presencia Mexa en los foros, pero por favor quiero pedirles lo siguiente:
    Por favor deshagance del nombre "mexican mafia"; verán, yo vivo en Juárez Chihuahua y para muchos de nosotros acá en la frontera norte, la vileza del narco no es ningún chiste...
    En nuestra ciudad, el ciclismo de montaña a venido a transformar de manera positiva en cierto sentido la imagen de esta ciudad; la carrera Chupacabras (100km) atrae competidores de todo el pa*s y de muchos lugares de EUA. A pesar de la imagen de violencia y corrupción que la gente tiene de esta ciudad vienen a competir y a conocer nuestra comunidad.
    Ojalá este foro sirva para mostrar lo mejor que tiene México. Igual que el ciclismo nos ayuda a mostrar lo mejor de nosotros mismos.
    Viva México!

    Hello, I like and support the idea of having a Mexico forum, but I must ask you for the following:
    Please drop the name "Mexican Mafia"…
    You see: I live in Juárez, right on the border with El Paso, Texas. For a lot of people here, the atrocious deeds of the drug smugglers are no joke... they try to kill each other right on the streets, and innocent people (including children) have died.
    In our city, MTB has come to transform in a positive way some of the vilified image of our city: the Chupacabras enduro race (100 km) brings in people from all over the country and a lot of people from the US. Even though the city is portrayed as a violent and corrupt place, they come and have a pleasant stay here.
    Hopefully this Mexico Board will be a way to show the best Mexico has to offer. Just as cycling helps us show the best within ourselves.

    Mountain biking is very popular in Baja California, check out: ciclismoenmexico.com, I live in San Diego and ride more often here but born and raised in T.J. Let me know if you are ever in town to show you around.

    I understand your concerns regarding the name, but it really is just a joke. It came from this thread on the Turner Forum.

    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=142625

    To paraphrase some old dead guy - some are born with a name, some earn a name, and some have a name thrust upon them (by AccidentProne). We all got a bit of a kick out of it and in our defense we probably post as much as anybody about the joys of riding here in Mexico. Check my posts in "Other Areas" about riding over the Sierra Madre del Sur.

    I honestly don't think people are taking it seriously, and I hope we aren't causing too much offense. Now, Hollywood's Interbike Thong Ride shots, that's another matter!

    Hi, Paisano!

    Don't get me wrong. I understand your point and we'll prolly drop the name... we didn't even nicknamed ourselves that way. We (unintentionally) highjacked a thread on the Turner forum and we were nicknamed that way by someone else.

    We had been trying to get the attention of the moderators for a Mexico Board to be created and not being only a part of the "Other Areas". We think that being so close to the US and having a large and important MTB scene countrywide deserves an space.

    Also, too many people outside Mexico asks where to ride and want some info on travelling to mexico, accomodation, etc.

    This is why we want a Mexico board and obviously we're using the nickname as a joke.

    As you might see from our threads and posts, we're precisely trying to change the image some people from outside has from Mexico. I work with people from all around the world and I can tell you that some have only what they get from the news... you wouldn't visit New York if you would think of it only for the news!!

    So, our intention is good. Check our threads also on riding in the Mexico City surroundings... it's incredible the high quality of the riding you can have just minutes away from the one of the biggest city in the world!!

    Also, from my side, my apologies if I caused any offense... but I wouldn't call "Nazi" the guy with the handle "BikeNazi". I mean, it's something that would not be taken seriously.

    Smile ok

    I hope I'm not making a fool out of myself.
    I realize that political correctness sometimes goes overboard, and yet I felt very strongly about this. I just had to ask you for it, and I’m glad that you have the best intentions. I would love to have a board to post in Spanish, or English, about riding in Mexico.
    So we are ok then. Peace.

    No problem, bro. We got the idea.

    About posting in spanish... that's something that I don't know how to take. I'd like it too to be sincere and that would attract more mexicans... but on the other hand it would segregate non-spanish speakers or even scare them away. So I don't know what to think about it.

    La "M" se une...

    Yo, what's crackin' fellas...
    Originally form the DF but transplanted a few times and now straight representin' the 425 (that is Washington, just a step from Canada)
    I'd like to say that a México Board is definitely in order...
    I know that this would be a great tool for ppl interested in MTB'ing south of the border and also for locals to hook up and organize rides.
    I'm sort of divided about whether or not to post in English or Spanish since there are good and not so good ideas on both.
    Maybe just post in English for the time being and then find a way to incorporate Spanish for those interested but not fluent in the language...
    One thing I hope does not happen. tho', is Spanglish... that's a sure way to further the decline of the mother tongue.
    Here are some perfect examples of crimes uttered in recent times...

    - Oye Chuy, ve a "parkear" el carro en el "garaje" pero quitate las chanclas antes de entrar porque no quiero lodo en la "carpeta".
    - Ayer fui a la "marketa" para comprar leche y, ah chinga', pues ya se la tomaron toda !
    - Hey Flaca, when you go to the "panaderia" don't forget to stop by "la tiendita" for some "brujas" for "la raza"...

    Well enough on this, we'll cross that bridge when we come up on it, I guess

    How about some ride reports, pictures and interesting commentary ?
    That's what'll get us our own board !

    Ya estamos !

    Welcome on board, Ramon!!!


    Good to see some paisanos chiming to the call...

    MEXICAN MAFIA DOES NOT LONGER EXIST!!!

    Call us "Mexican (insert whatever you want here)"... the name is the less important thing. We're interested in a Mexican Foum and that's what's important.

    Well, paisanos!! Let's post more mexican stuff for other people from wherever else would know how we do MTB'ing Mexican Style!

    Un abrazo a todos!

    Good job! Just when things were getting interesting...

    ...the Mexican Mafia has gone south; how about just a Latino forum, representing all Latino MTB folks? That way, all latin countries can chime in, and report the best mountain biking there is, Latino mountain biking. Who has a better place to MTB than the Peruvians at Machu Pichu? What can be more exhilirating than doing Lake Titicaca (you know, the lake shared by Peru and Chile...Peru has the Titi part, and Chile has the caca part ). Ever ride in Bolivia? I have...nothing like it.

    Just follow me, and I'll show you who your Papi chulo is...viva la raza.

    The Mexican Council will reunite and vote... but I don't think we would be against a Hispanoamerican Forum....

    Talking about the Andes.... have you checked Giant's Maestro webpage??? The Andes seem to be the ultimate proving grounds for MTB's. Though I can think of more than one place in Mexico that would be as tough.

    Creel @ Copper Canyon

    What about coming up with a calendar for the upcoming gatherings/ rides? Let's start with a preliminary calendar, and move on from that.

    The problem with not having a specific board, is that one single tread carries all the messages on all the topics... it's hard to follow.

    Ok, so I propose the first and second dates for the proposed gatherings:

    Around mid july, the traditional Onza Race in Creel Chihuahua, @ Copper Canyon... big cycling festival includes XC, Road, DH, Criteriums...

    October is a busy month for everybody (so it seems) there's the popobike in Puebla after the 15th, but the second saturday in october there's the Chupacabras 100Km in Juarez (my hometown).

    +++++
    Que tal si empezamos a generar un calendario para anotar las fechas de las reuniones, aunque sea de manera preliminar, para tener un punto de partida.

    El problema con no tener un espacio especifico para estos mensajes es que todos estan en el mismo mensaje original.

    Bueno, ahi les van dos propuestas para las reuniones:

    Durante la primera mitad del mes de Julio: la carrera y festival de turismo de aventura en Creel, Chihuahua. + o - 4 horas por carretera desde la capital.

    En octubre se acumulan los eventos, pero aca en Juarez tenemos la carrera Chupacabras 100Km. Y luego esta tambien la Popobike en Puebla.
    semper ad excelsum

    Oh Yeah.

    I'll pick us all up some spiked Nokians for Christmas!

    Or we can Ski-Bike like the guy on the Turner Board!

    The weather can be changeable there. I got stuck in a hailstorm up there in late August.

    Wow, this thread of mine got to the second page! That's poca ma... cabrones!

    Let's do something on january. Like Tigerdog said, Nevado de Toluca, or we can go to 'El Chico' in Hidalgo. It has like a 6 mile downhill singletrack in the middle of a beautifull forest. Oh, by the way, on the way back there is only one climbing section... around 7 miles long....

    Will anyone help me out with the adresses of the LBS in their hoe towns??
    Or with directions on getting to local xc trails?
    As i previously explained im driving around mexico on December and i would really apreciate your help on this...
    It`s really dificult for me to travekl because of the goddamn work, and because of $$ issues. Mazatlan is pretty far from Durango chihuahua DF Toluca etc...
    so this trip means a lot to me.

    Thanks.

    Hi, July seems like a good date to try Cooper canion, I think the waterfalls and the Sierra are more spectacular during that time of the year... Tentatively I would say I'm going but it depends on job vacations!

    I would be great to have a Latino Forum rather than just a Mexico forum. Truth is, tho', I haven't seen many latinos other mexicans who have expressed interest in a separate forum.
    Hey, I didn't know that one could ride their bike in Machu Picchu. I've read that the goverment of Peru has tightened up a bit on tourist travel and has restricted permits to the Inca trail and the ruins. I'd be very interested to hear stories from any Peruvians willing to share.

    I have a dream to once be able to hike and/or ride at least a portion of the great Inca trail and at some point visit the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. Views in the Andes can be nothing less than breathtaking.
    I just saw a bike video, "New World Disorder 6 - UNCHAINED".
    That vid is totally sick !
    There is a segment in it where they shot on location in the Bolivian mountains and it looks absolutely incredible up there.
    Also, there is a segment shot in Baja Mexico that looks awesome.

    I've been to Baja on a motorcycle trip throught the desert and also on a 2week self supported Kayak trip in the Sea of Cortez but I have never ridden my bike there, YET.

    If you've never been to Baja, you should. Forget about Cabo San Lucas and just head straight to San Carlos on the Pacific side or LaPaz, Mulege and Loreto on the Cortez side.
    Ride the rocky trails of the Sierra, swim with the Dolphins, Whales and eat what you catch while basking in crystal clear waters and deep blue sky of the gulf coast in that vast biosphere reserve that is considered to be one of the most unique marine environments of the world.

    Ok, enough of the Mexico infomercial... let's ride !

    we have an issue on the National event.
    The guys who are in charge now really suck. The last National event they held was pretty lame with a very poor participation and a the trial was in a very careless status. Now the race track has almost been abandoned by them they dont do any manteinance and oody around here supports them, nobody supported them before but now it`s just more obvious.
    There are some peopple around here that are trying to organize events, races and to regenerate the several xc courses that were left on their own. Im into that group doing regular trail manteinance and the sorth.
    But the future of the National events is pretty uncertain. However in a couple of months we will have cleaned and marked down 3 xc trails, while we have a lot of epic rides to choose from so wether a national event is held or not i Mazatlan there`s plenty of riding to do.
