    I missed tonyhawks & Mcrp01's race because I had to be somewhere else, but.........here's Mcrp01 on the podium!! (3rd place Beg DH)

    Way to go, guys!

    Doug, I just tried to PM you but I'm not sure it went through. It also appears that McGRP's PM box is full....newb...

    So, if you didn't get my message, I did not get your PMs until today. I wrecked pretty hard in Thursday practice on the rocks up top on my 4th run. I bruised my knee and hand really badly along with cutting up my shoulder and arm and trashing my front wheel. I really have no idea what happened...just one of those "riding....riding...and that's the sound of my helmet bouncing on the rocks" crashes. I stayed with an ex-girlfriend and her family in Rochester, VT on Thursday and was planning to camp at Haystack the rest of the time. Well, I got up Fri and Sat and both times it was painful to walk and I could not bend my right middle finger at all (physically could not move it because of the swelling). So, without being able to pedal or hold the bars, I stayed in Rochester until this morning when I left to watch the rest of the races.

    Thanks everyone............and damn jrogers, I hope you recover from your fall/injuries asap

    While Tigg & I watched the expert DH, both his buddy and mine fell hard right in front of us.......I was suprised they could get even get back up, but they both finished there runs. My friend was brought to the medical area, looked like he needed a few stiches to his forehead.





    please feel free to paypal me $200 each so I can replace my old (auto focus) camera - thanks

    not yet

    That was one tough XC course, had to be over 1000 ft of climbing, and no time to rest (except a 1/4 mile flat section around a pond), pretty much you were either climbing, or descending on really demanding technical singletrack.

    Wow....thanks for all the kind words all!! What a great weekend! Got up there Friday morning and took a few practice runs. The Beginner/Sport DH course was perfect for me. Wide open up top with some nasty waterbars and then in and out of the woods a couple times. Some decent 3'-4' drops, off-camber exposed roots, small boulders....I :heart: 'd it!! :D Saturday morning I got in a few more practice runs and hiked a couple sections to find better/faster lines. Around noon I got up top for the race runs and just happened to get lined up right behind Tony Hawk. (Nice to meet you man!! :thumb: ) Had probably my smoothest run of the weekend during the race and managed to walk away in 3rd place. I'm happy with that. :) After my race Douglas and I hiked up to Yard Sale to watch the Expert Men race. (Props to Douglas for getting 5th in Sport Mens XC!!!) Pictures cannot describe the carnage that that section of the Expert/Pro course lays on the field. Many, MANY crashes...some severe. :( Unfortunately, I had to leave Sat. evening and didn't get to see the pros on Sunday. Can't wait for the next one....next Platty race is in 2 weeks!! :devil:

    Here's a couple non-blurry pics...

    i havent been up there in quite a few years. i love runinng mount snow. the last time i was up there was probably 1998 or 99. we were riding the trails the weekend before the race and they were setting everything up. one of the dudes i was with was not much of a biker and he crashed and burned hard on teh first run only 30 yards from the top of the lift. as much as we warned him that this was not just a ride through the woods, he insisted on going with us. well to make a long story short, he had to walk down the hill with a busted wrist and sat on the picnic tables watching the NORBA guys set up shop.
    i so wish i had a better bike and more time to get back into shape to race for real... :( oh well
