Dragging a big bike up there is worth it.
Not a bad little video there 66. I like that section at 2:05 where you got muddy once.

A lot of the riding we do is fire road climbs between 5 and 10 miles then singletrack decents. So we just spin to the top and talk on the way up the have fun on the way down.

You should climb the singletrack and descend on the fire road...that'd be sweet!

girlscout looks like he must kick some ass these days. I remember posts/pics from 5 yrs ago!

so what is his focus? DH? does he have any desire to do XC?

are you guys near that warrior creek race? It's coming up in about 3 weeks. I will be there.

My new bike will not be ready so I will be Cove Hand jobbing it. I sure hope I can survive 6 hours on a hard tail!

I guess it is some Kerr Scott trail system in Wilkesboro or something like that. I will probably get a hotel for nights of April 2nd and the 3rd...race on the 3rd, drive back Sunday. Looks to be about 8 hours from me.
