    Our DH buddies were testing the new section of the course for next week's season opener. I had all the gear but was short in time so only took some pics, LD did 2 runs and we quickly left to attend other (political) stuff.

    The course is far from perfect, it was dusty and very loose; everyone is hoping for some rain during the week.

    The first shots are from LD.




    Crash or close call?


    Close call













    Next Sunday our racing season starts and LD will be mixing it up doing XC and DH.

    On other topic, the trip to NY is taking form. So far the group is of 9, 3 of those are non riders. Plattekill will the first place to hit for sure.

    wow, where do you live that it's that dry in March?
    That is shocking after riding in greasy mud all weekend.

    That place is so dry that can catch fire on any spark, hopefully will burn after the racing is done.

    My Father-In-Law worked down there for a while for his company and has been trying to get me down there ever since. Wow I now know I will have to bring my DH bike now. Its always nice when you can DH in the morning and Surf in the afternoon!!!!! Thats what I like about when I go up to NJ.
