    Good Ole regular Fontana Racing once again, No more sticky tracks, no more Ultra hi winds, just good Ole Off camber, foot of sand corners and rocks...... I lvoe it



    But what the hell, As much as I hate teh sprint along the dreaded"Wall of Hell" It just doesnt feel like fontana without the sprint..... But still, Its kinda nice running a coarse you truly dont "need" to pedal, just pedal for an Extra boost..... See you guys tommorrow, lets all have some fun and a good day racing!!!

    F*ck, I hate you guys. I've got a foot of snow over a few inches of ice to look at every morning when I get up. Today we had 45mph winds with a -30 windchill. I had to go around all my doors with a butane torch to get the fugging mail.
    Enjoy. Ride harder for me!

    You guys get hammered over there too, don't ya? I'm in South Dakota. The biggest, most suckiestest thing here is the wind. ALWAYS the damn wind. 365 days a year, blowin and blowin. We have to dial in whips just to be able to get off the ground without crashin.
    But you guys get a bunch of snow each year, don't ya?

    We have just under two months to go before the Fluidride Cup kicks of in Port Angeles and I can't wait much more than that, really.

    No snow on the foothilll trails around here...just mucky, greasy and straight-up wet. Mmmmmmmmm...mountain biking!

    Definitely a fun, and different setup than any other time Ive been out there. The section that everyone was working on was a ton of fun, and if you hit it just right, pretty quick too!

    I'm with skyst3alth and thrillseeka: had to climb through the back door of my 4x4 as the other doors were frozen shut.


    Good luck in the race guys.

    I had a real good ride today, although it started to sleet about 1/2 way through. That was *FANTASTIC*
