Uh-oh. You call this riding skillz? I call this "making a complete fool of
myself". Addition: Half an hour before the crash, I was bitching about
another guy who crashed in the exact same spot in exactly the same way,
calling him an incompetent poser. ;-) Hell, at least nobody (except my
riding buddy) saw it...

You guys need to stop your ride training right now.
Any injury this close to the fest could ruin the fun
and leave you to sit in camp all day drinking and
talking smack with the few who remain with you.
Save the heroics for Willow Creek, Little Water and
Snow slide trails......Just a suggestion... =;^)
Ask Tami about the virtues of bubble wrap and
staying off a bike the week before SpodeFest.

So far, they have been out, but not "swarms" of them, 40% should do
