The pic is tad bit old but it's the only one I have. The race was at Schweitzer ski resort outside Sandpoint Idaho taken in 97. Raced up there 3 times in the late 90's. It was a great course and I have slogged it out in the Sport catagory for to many years.

Sorry for the crap imagery. They are pictures of pictures.

These are from my best season on a MTB.

On the finishing straight to winning the Montana State Championship (Jr-Expert) while wearing the Washington State Champion Jersey from that same season.



On my way to winning the 2001 National Championship at Crystal Mountain that same year. (Jr.-Expert)

Way to ruin an awesome bike with the coolest damn fork ever, unseen man. Also, no pictures for you, since I don't have any, and if I did I'm scared to post myself on the intraweb for fear of becoming a new meme on 4chan.

It was nice, defiantly helps you not fatigue so fast. I got 3rd out of 8, would of done better but I just didn't have any energy in me. It was one of those bad days you get every now and then.

You may have noticed the reflector on the front wheel as well. What you can't see is the tent set up by the Shop that brought that bike and others. I'm sure those pedals are on there only so the bike can be test-ridden.

Yes, except the times when I hold the bars a bit wider.
