Sugar Mountain DH Photos

Three friends and I went up to Sugar Mountain, NC this past weekend to check out the NORBA event. It was my first time at any sort of professional mountain bike race. I really enjoyed the trip and the chance to see how fast the pros ride. Man they are fast!
Between Saturday and Sunday I took tons of pictures, so here is the first group of many to come.

Here are some of my photos of the pro women and men downhill…















Sam Hill is sooo FAST!!


I'll post some of the pro dual slalom and lots of randoms in the near future...

These factory DH pros can't really afford the good stuff. That Monster green bike of Hills is very cool. Highrevs, Do you have any shots of Herndon? Cane Creek,white helmet,Blue Demo?

I have one from the DH that is kinda well... I was not too proud of it from what I remember. I have a couple from dual slalom that turned out ok I think... I am going to sort more pictures tonight after my son goes to bed, so I’ll see what I have then...

The Fox40 fork (on most of the bikes in the pictures) is probably more expensive than Jaydub's complete bike.

Anyone can buy a Sunday.

I want his brakes, which are purportedly the new 4 piston Juicys with dual cartridge bearing lever pivots.
