From where I was standing, it appeared that a drunk superfan might have given EC a love tap with a home-made white trash noise maker.
What the hell?:crazy:

Anybody else see???

If it's enough to make him look back, it was too much.............whatever it was.

Is that clay porter getting pissed for EC not returning his calls? :D

Lets hear from EC before we trash the “enthusiastic guy with the Milk jug full of gravel, and a mouth full a DH fashion advice”.
Why? It's fairly obvious what occured. I'm happy slating the SOB for his actions.
Spectators here in Europe are enthusiastic too, but in the good way.

That sucks, but at least he wasn't standing in the trail. Nothing annoys me more than fans that try to cross the trail or aren't paying attention when you are coming

If that guy hit Carter by accident (or got too close) just cheering him on with the "noisemaker" that's one thing...

But if he did it on purpose, well - I'm not one to purport violence, but if I was there I'd stomp his guts out.

But that's just me - results and opinions may vary.

:biggrin:

While you guys are mostly right about fans not interfering with racers, in this instance it's different. The "superfan" was Scott Hart, and he talked with a bunch of racers (including EC) before hand and let them know, so the racers were all stoked with it, and if the weren't, Scott wouldn't do anything. Scott has raced pro a long time, he knows the deal. The white trash noise maker he had was awesome, a milk jug he found on the ground with rocks in it. Scott even recycled the milk jug after he emptied out the rocks. I tried to have him whack me with the milk jug on the pedalling section to give a little extra encouragement, but Scott was too late for that. All the fans in that section were awesome.

as said, Scott Hart was the culprit with the Milk Jug......we have talked about his "white trash noise makers" many times and he wanted to show me he had it going....in the quali he had a water bottle and i didn't hear it so he upgraded to super size....

i had no problem with Scott being there, he was a bit close but he didn't change my line, i just looked at him so he knew i heard the "Jug" and we had a good laugh about it after the race......that section was so loud it was like a world cup...i thought it was cool for all the slamming Fontucky takes.

case closed !! Way to go superfan:clapping:
 
Nice video. Usually it's the photogs who i usually almost hit. They lean way out over the tape to get a good shot not knowing that my ninja line is right over there next to them up against the tape. I know i'm not focusing enough when I watch them dart out of the way.

For me, the hardest part of a race run is going through some section devoid of fans, then popping off a rock drop with some stealthy photog like Damian Breach hiding behind a tree.

You all think that milk jug was intimidating, there was a guy playing sneak at the Fontana, NORTH CAROLINA night downhill race back in February. He was dressed in a near 7 foot tall COOKIE MONSTER costume. It was scary as crap to be 2 wheel drifting in the dark and have him pop out from behind a tree into your vision. Worst run was during my race run, he was on the uphill side of a blind curve and just inches away from me in the dark!!!!

It was comedic if you know it's coming...creepy when he changes locations! :D:D

Really?!

Based on my previous response, I guess option #3 never occured to me: "It's OK if ... it was a friend that wanted to show you his noise maker..."

My apologies - didn't know that was Scott Hart or that he was someone you knew well.

He was dressed in a near 7 foot tall COOKIE MONSTER costume. It was scary as crap to be 2 wheel drifting in the dark and have him pop out from behind a tree into your vision. Worst run was during my race run, he was on the uphill side of a blind curve and just inches away from me in the dark!!!!
...that would definitely freak me out.

Best execution of 'superfan' ever has to be Snowshoe '04 when Chase and the boys shook up their beer bottle as let loose all over George Ryan 100 yards out of he start gate. Someone must have caught it on camera?

Glad it was all in fun, I really thought you were going to march back up the hill and kick sum.

To Scott Hart: Sorry if I insulted you, I just had visions of groms throwing milk jugs at all the pros for fun. Keep yelling! This race was a blast.

i could have sworn that was in one of the dvds they have.. sevenvision, chain reaction(1-5?), no recess or maybe even counterparts? i'm kinda leaning towards that last one...

There have been some white ass sightings at Fontana also in the past....I'm sensing a trend here.

It's nice to see Scotty is living up to his Indiana roots with the white trash shaker.....
