    "The weekend of April 19-20 will be the official Delta House Racing trail Work weekend. Just Got off the Phone with Lazlo and its all set. So come on up and have some fun and do your part to keep Plattekill the best place to ride in the east. And who knows, we might even let you design some new features. Camping will be allowed if you are coming from afar!


    As we promised Beer and BBQ for everyone and Lift tickets for the following day so you can have the mountain to your selves! I sure cant wait! Its gunna be a hell of a start to the 2008 season!"

    "It will be a two day event. Saturday we will all work on the trails. Of course, in true Delta House fashion we will have some kegs and BBQ for everyone that helped. And now the best part... Sunday, everyone who worked on the trails will get a free lifticket. You cant buy a ticket and the mountain will only be open to the people who helped out!"

    Hmm lets see big park with lots of money for building that treats is costumers like crap or bigger mountain with better racing and is really nice to everyone who rides there. My vote would have gone towards Highland but my second choice is Plattekill. Horray Plattekill!

    riding your bike in a manner such that you are only going in a down direction on a hill doesn't make you a downhiller... by your logic everyone on a road bike would be a downhiller too. and so would my 5 year old cousin who rides his bike down his driveway.


    and everyone knows that downhilling is all about what's in the magazines! i mean, where else would I be able to find the latest trends and opinions to take as factual information so that I don't have to make my own decisions about what to wear and where to ride?

    just don't forget your bug spray and toilet paper, plenty of booze, and enough stuff to burn to keep you warm.


    also: plenty of blankets, and something soft to sleep on. that parking lot is made of hardpack dirt and sharp pointy rocks.

    I'm really interested in coming out to this, but I have almost no trail building experience. I'm more than happy to lift logs, shovel dirt and fall most of the way down the hill like a wayward mountain goat, but I wouldn't be much good without someone telling me what I should be doing. Should I sit it out?

    The more people the better. Also any flammables will do. Pallets, Firewood, Gas, TNT, High Explosives. What ever you got. Just show up with a shovel and what ever tools you normally use to build and put in a good days work for a free day of riding.

    if you have any corpses laying around the house, a plattekill bonfire is a great way to dispose of them!

    I love Plattekill for all the above mentioned reasons... Wish I could come help but chances are I won't be able to. Are you guys clearing all/many of the trails or more specifically the first race course? (If it's the latter, please make it the same as the snow race this past November, I've heard rumors that it will be). Diablo...psh

    PS: I think you mean the weekend of the 19th and 20th

    And that is why Plattekill is my fave for racing. Plus it has some great trails that are challenging as well. Diablo is great too but love the platty.

    I'm just bumping this back up as a reminder. Post something if you are going to be there is you have not all ready so we can get an idea of how many people are coming.

    The mountain and lifts will ONLY be open for those who work on Saturday.

    The May race course will be laid out during the weekend and sneak previews will be available, remember this race qualifies one JrX boy and one JrX girl for the USACycling Worlds team with $$$$ support.


    !! TRIPLE CHAIR SIDE !!

    Course hint and the only one: You'll have fun if your hardcore enough not to break a tooth.
