Awesome day up at Blackrock this Saturday - went up with Miguel to get the season kicked off early. NO RAIN all day. it was great. Miguel has some pictures from the day so when I get those i'll add them to the video.. Enjoy
BTW, the blackrock guys were doing some work when we were up there.. and they have some great stuff in the works.... we rode a hodgepodge of trails today since a handful were closed for work... I can't wait to ride sictar from top to bottom once it is 100% polished... and they were building what looks like to be a small wallride on the top section of bonzai.. I have a feeling summer is going to be gooooood. __________
My season officially starts on Saturday - Miguel and I are going to go ride at Blackrock, it will be raining so but it is Feb in the PNW, so it is expected. We'll probably spend the majority of our time at Basic. I want to get the cobwebs brushed out and Miguel is just starting to get on a big bike so hanging out at basic will give him a great opportunity to get comfortable and develop some technique.
I'll have my cam with me and i'm sure miguel will bring his still camera.
www.bansheebikes.com is up and running. I did the concept designs for this site. It sure was a learning experiences. There are some things I would do differently next time but overall i think it turned out great!
hopefully we get a early start to the season but if we aren't lucky enough we don't want to find ourselves wasting precious laps getting brushing off the "offseason" Cobwebs. Here are some nice cornering tips from Lars of Transition Bikes new racing team.
