    Will try to get some pics and a helmet cam run this weekend.


    June 6-7

    Saturday Morning the Delta House Crew will be taping the race course for our second DH race of the season. The course will be open for some advanced practice. Race times were very close and competitive at our first race so take advantage of the great weather forecasted and try to get your lines dialed.


    The Race which will take place next weekend, June 13-14 features a classic Plattekill Track on the North Face double chair side. It will also have some new sections and features that you will need to practice and concentrate on.

    The best ticket value in the country will be available: A two day weekends pass for just $40, camping and BBQ food specials will all be offered as they are every weekend.


    Hope to see you here !!!!

    I'll be there both days this weekend and next weekend Geoff will miss practice Saturday morning, but otherwise YES !!! I guess there's going to be a VonCooper movie premier and a all you can eat buffet, Saturday June 13 5pm after practice.

    We have a friend flying in for this race and his first time visit to the mountain. Always fun showing someone around on their first time there.

    The course sounds sweet from the descriptions I've heard, a couple of formerly 90 degree turns have been straightened out and bermed. A steep chute and an off camber jumble of rocks to fly thru. I'll post up some pics Saturday night.

    You mean laying under a tree like a frat pledge during hazing?

    Don't worry, you're not the first guy to leave racoon food under that tree.

    Sorry Jim

    I'll be the first to admit I suck - and use all the go rounds.

    But its still fun to race in our big Cat 1 group - even though I know in my heart I'm CAT 2 all the way!

    Nah, I was referring to when I bruised basically my entire right a$$ cheek during the weekend of the first diablo race (I've got pictures if you wanna see. I know you wanna). Then slammed myself onto my lower back this past weekend at Mt Snow.

    Plattekill needs less AK 47 shooting and more all out sword fights to keep the legend rolling.

    This course is one of the most thought out and fun to ride. If anyone has to miss a race don't make it this race

    sorry I forget your personal schedule guy, write it down on a napkin for me.

    Keep it up and your bike is going to get the steve Peat treatment in the parking lot.
