    Hardtail?!?!?! what, he didn't whip everyone enough on a 6" travel bike? Hardtail?!?!?!

    I'll be there...on my 4" travel FS bike...although w/ the NWDC premiere the night before, I might be a bit tired and hopefully not hung over.;)

    Pops is talking about bringing Trisha out. 2 more ladies and that would be a class. I'm still trying to get hold of Dan Marker and Randy McDaniels. 3 gates of mtbs here we come(I hope I hope!) I haven't heard from Twisted this week yet to see if he and his Portland guys might come up. With any luck we might even see evilbob out there:evil: Anyone heard how black sunshine or knucklebutt and son did at the ABA Grands last weekend?

    Looks like BS didn't make the main in Nat #1 and got a 6th in Nat #2 and KB and son didn't make the main in either Nat #1 or #2.

    D. Bushnell got 1st in both Nats. Archibald made the mains in both Nats - don't remember what his finishes were though.

    Hey,
    Down here in Portland, our indoor park (track and ramps www.bmxracingnw.com) will be open six days a week. Sundays 1pm-5pm will be big bikes only. Thurday nights always have 30+ mtb's showing up to practice.

    Mountain Cycle and Tonic Fab will be putting on some kind of race series / contest with valuable and exciting prizes. The format is still in the works.

    Maybe you guys should come down here?

    Great, that's all I need - you on one side and CD on the other, I'll get squished. I guess I gotta get outta the gate faster and into turn 1. Just as long as you don't throw any elbows like other people :angry:

    I usually get really good gates, unless I'm up against someone who's good at rolling backwards before the gate drops to get a rolling start. I'd like to figure out how to do that.

    How old would you have to be to qualify as an "OLD FART"?

    I think he's saying 40 and over - so that means Lumberjack, Evilbob, Certified Drunk and Knuckelbutt.

    Old Fart class would be 40 and over. Knucklebutt has to take the gate facing backwards. He is fast but we can waive the backwards gate start if he wears an inflateable sumo suit. As far as the helmet rules go the helmet has to cover the temples and ears. NateH if you need a kids helmet please let me know and I will try to find one of S Weasles small ones.

    Kevin does not like BMX so that's not going to happen and I don't want to risk racing with all the elbows flying and landing on my arm:dead:

    We are going snowshoeing this weekend for the first time! I'm so excited:)

    Snacks tell TM it ain't bmx. Its indoor mtx. Plus you get to rub ELBOWS with some of you closest friends. Not to mention stirring the pot is fun too!

    I get the feeling that I would be the traction.
    Or more like a big speed bump.

    Hopefully you are not aquiring the girth some of us are. Makes the berms a bit tighter than they need to be. No tutu comments please.

    Kidding? No you weren't kidding - you say it you mean it. You'll understand what I mean when you meet some of these guys. They can be brutal.

    I had come home to look something up on the internet and I got sucked in to this void and wound up here(yes, it was a wide void:blah: )
