    I like 3 (though his face is soft), 4, 6, 7 best. Nice lighting. Were you using one flash off camera?

    I would have been there, but I couldn't find a ride up.

    They started at 12:15 and gave a 30 second gap and a person wrote down the finish times at bottom.

    Basically it is set as a 6 race series and held at local trails each place is awarded a point tally and at the series end a champ is crowned i have heard $$ is paid to enter small amount like $5 and winner takes all this cannot be confrimed or denied. There was actually 33 racers today! THE COURSES RANGE FROM EASY TO VERY HARD MAKE NORBA PRO COURSE LOOK LIKE WALK ON THE SIDEWALK SO ONLY ABOUT 5-6 GUYS WILL RACE THOSE TWO TRAILS BUT THE 0THER 4 ARE FUN!

    The race was sick today. Last year the most people we ever got out at one of the blackmarket races was like 12, so the turnout today pretty much blew everyone away, but our timing went off flawlessley which was impressive. I'm looking forward to the two gnar gnar races Ian was talking about above. Thanks again Ian for spending your sunday morning shooting shots of us all.
