    January 10, 2008 – Vernon, New Jersey - Diablo Freeride Park, home of the U.S. Open of Mountain Biking, has officially announced the event lineup for the 2008 Diablo Domination Series. Returning in its fourth year, the five-event grass-roots series continues in 2008 offering the largest cash and prize payout in the east totalling over $50,000.

    The Diablo Domination Series has historically been a hotbed for up-and-coming amateur talent and in 2008 amateur classes will be revised to include 2 separate age categories and a huge influx of top-notch prize packages provided by Diablo Freeride Park exclusive sponsors.

    Two age brackets, young & fast and old & slow.

    Sadly, I fall into the latter category, lol

    Hey, I thought you weren't going to race anymore?

    Couldn't keep away, huh? :clapping:

    Heh - nope.

    My crash was because:

    1.) I didn't take enough time to familiarize myself with the course (was running at 90% race speed after only my 3rd or 4th practice run)

    2.) Was WAY too relaxed. Instead of being relaxed but focused I was just relaxed. Instead of hearing the normal music in my head like "Green Hell" by the Misfits or "Battery" by Metallica I heard "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong... just to give you an idea of where my head was.

    ...wow did I say that - you must be thinking of someone else.

    :biggrin:

    Yep - couldn't stay away. BUT, my attitude and awareness are MUCH different. More course-walking, more slow-speed practice runs until I'm comfy, no rushing my practice runs, and lots of coffee / Slayer.

    Welcome back! :thumb:

    Listening to Slayer has been proven in laboratory tests to shave 9.873 seconds or more off your race run. :rockout:
