    Did anyone happen to see Greg Minnaar's race run today at Northstar? Pictures? I'm really bummed I didn't get to see the (currently) fastest dh racer in the world ripping down dogbone.

    I am even more bummed I didn't just go up and say hi.
    Instead I just stared at him at the water cooler.

    Nah. He was getting a ticket when I was leaving.

    Would have been nice to see him kill some sections that we all 'think' we're fast on though. :D

    yeah. I didn't even get to see him ride at all. kinda bummed. didn't realize it was him until like 4:30 and he was just chilling at the water cooler tables.

    i'm hoping someone caught him in action and can give a report. wonder why he was in the area. pretty cool though.

    I know a guy who's next door neighbour's babysitter swears she knows someone who saw him riding.

    Apparently he looked fast.

    I'll find out more and let you know.

    Ok.

    I talked to a guy, who knows this dude who was standing next to somebody who had overheard a guy saying he had heard from his nextdoorneighbour's babysitter that she knew someone who saw Minnaar riding.

    It turned out to be false. It was just a cardboard cut-out of him standing next to a water cooler table.

    I heard he was at Whiteface at 11am getting in a few 5k runs, Diablo around lunch shooting for the record on Alpine, then bunny hopping a Lexus at a car dealership in Austin, TX wearing a yellow wristband....so he couldn't have been at Northstar. Keep dreaming.:plthumbsdown:

    Whatever. You parked next to me and you hung your man-pris on the antenna of my Dodge. Your skid marked underoos were in there as well.

    Oh yeah, I was F'ing with you when you asked me about leaving that tire there. I recognized you but I knew you had no idea who I was.

    I drive a truck because I like to drive like I drive a truck. You can tell by the paint job it does many trucklike things.

    There's about 15% of that parking lot that rarely gets utilized :D
