    Labor Day....where are you riding?

    SsinGa, myself and a couple other big wheel nuts are going to ride and get GPS data for our ride we are leading at the Monte Sano Fat Tire Festival. Some are calling it the "Death March", I guess we'll see after today how tough it will be

    Here's what happened to my shoulder (see vid) Substitute a lot faster OTB-inspired impact for the 250lb lineman. Same landing with arm tucked to side (mine was a one point, shoulder specific landing with legs and left hand tangled up in the bike, the bike pivoted up and over the turned front wheel). Same shock of impact, same rolling around in pain and disbelief, same sling, same pissed expression.

    My swelling has gone down a bit, I'm still all bruised up and in a sling, I don't think I actually damaged the rotator cuff area (the impact was on the side) but there's no way I'm riding for awhile. Once I start PT (when???) I'll know the extent of the damage. Cheers.

    Heal up...meanwhile while you're on the trainer, why not watch the rewind of the Worlds.

    I just went to watch a few mins and couldn't walk away for the whole 2hrs!
    You'll probably burn the tires right off your trainer.

    The commentators alone made it an OTB event: "He went down harder than a sh!t in a swimming pool!"

    Needed to get some miles before a century road ride next weekend, but not feeling like riding the road bike, took off from the house and rode the Turner O2 15 road miles up to a nice 12 mile singletrack loop:

    http://www.runkeeper.com/pub/act/ywXtNAHnqPKA42L5un8Y/

    As always, got nice comments during the ride:

    - Mile 16 guy1: "wow. Nice Turner. Those are great bikes"
    - Mile 22 guy2: "oh. Hey. A Turner. I have a Burner. How do you like yours?"
    - Mile 26 guy3: "is that a 5 Spot?" 10 minute discussion of Turners follows

    Saturday was inspiring to say the least.

    Sunday: EBT/SBT, Taos, NM. Brutal!

    Monday: Topped it off with a final day at Angel Fire, NM. 7 runs of ripping fast DH.

    Ta....

    Riding with Bandoleros is laborious .

    Keep an eye on the NM board. Angel Fire has some solid DH tracks.

    Nice stoke...BTW

    Ahh, you ran into David, Jaybo's buddy and neighbor in HR. Sounds like he has been rocking the DW goodness as of late.

    I did that same fig-8 loop with my brother yesterday from 3-6pm. Trails were great in that area after the rain, Portland or west of Hood, not so much. Should be a great week of riding here in the NorthWet after all the weekend rain. Heading to Bend on Friday, yipee.
    Ride On!

    I rode my dhr for the first time. On a trail on top of the hill i live in. Most people would recognize solstice... kinda rocky, loose, steep, and oh so much fun. On the climb up, some kid: "is that a knolly?" me, and my friend in unison: "no, a super sweet turner" and we rode away ahaha. but I absolutely love the bike.

    fresh tracks

    been working on this line and all it needs now is some tires doing the finish work. I envisioned it as a big bike worthy trail, but wanted to make this sessioning/videoing easier, so the rfx got to do something different. Starting to get scared now at the thought of pinning it on the dhr....

    My water carrier, slacking on the job getting some shade, its spring and it was over 24deg C





    Buddy on the last big dropper this looks sweet wish I could hit it, theres a wee step up gapper before it then and nice ride off this which he could have hit much faster, but the tech is negoitiong the step up and staying on the track, nice feature and safe as well!



    Maxxis and his mate playing silly buggers these guys go all day, best buddies

    Ya the English brought it with them for building hedges back when they colonised the land

    Where they cutting is totally new so its not so much clearing existing trails its cutting totally new trails, we've been given a whole new block to play in and its totally cool and wicked for mini Dh and AM riding, should get a good 3.5 minutes of DH on this one with some ups that will require full steam noise to keep up momentum so ya don;t have to do the Mt Psychosis and run while pushing ya bike up, is Summer this ground is like concrete, actually its like that now, but the track will take a month or 2 to bed in, but full of roots drops tree stumps made into jumps drops, off camber full on narl and snarl with just enough room for some 30" bars, nice landing if ya crash, expect for picking out the gorse from ay arse, this area is one of my fav spots it might not look like a picture to some but its real riding techy challenging and raw no ***** stuff, and the good thing is ya don;t have to get huck air to make it that way the terrain is naturally tech, the huckers all crash here

    I'm looking into some chainguides, but honestly, it would have to accomodate a dual ring setup. I haven't seen many (that work) that don't weigh a ton or cost a fortune. Same thing with the HS, just can't justify the cost over function at this point. \


    Great pics. Glad your out there in any fashion. Water is essential, but gatorade is better!!!
