    Killer weekend!

    Well, my LBS's bus leaves at 5:00am tomorrow. A famous ski/snowboard station/resort is now hosting a MTBing event in Andorra and my LBS organised a trip there by bus, altogether 55 of us going. There's going to be illimited use of the ski lifts to take the bikes and come back down the slopes again, I'll get to test 2006 products, I'll participate in this event where you are taken up by ski lift and then there's 3 or 4 hours of trails, mostly downhill with some climbs. Can't wait. I'll take my camera so I'll try and take some pics while I'm at it. Hundreds of people going, apparently very popular. The only thing I was nervous about was that I was the only 13-14 year old going up until when yesterday I was told this 14 year old guy is coming with a Kona Stuff on the LBS's bus aswell.

    For 90 euros I have the following:
    Transport there and back, of me and my bike.
    Stay in a don't know how to call it (not hotel, there's a massive room and loads of beds side by side)
    Breakfast
    Dinner
    A free set of Michelin Dual Compound tires
    And of course, use of the pistes

    Anyway, see you all on Monday.

    Cheers and have a nice weekend,

    Thanks! I'll take extra batteries so there will be no excuses for no pics. I can't promise any pics of the 4 hour trailride, I don't think I'll stop. Of the rest, hopefully!

    Hey have agood time and have fun. Make sure you watch what the people are doing because that is an excellent opportunity to learn new things from people who work at the shop (And are probably good riders)
