Best. Day. Evar.

I went up to Gillard today to ride with a friend. we ended up getting one shuttle up to the 11k mark, and riding down some crappy flooded trails. We rode out at around the 3k mark and stopped in a dirt parking lot. We contemplated just going home but decided to take it up the flashpipe and walk up again.

Just when we started going back up guess who rolls up in a pimped out black f-650?

Steve Romaniuk.
Ryan Schnepf.
Richie Schley.
and Mike Kinrade.

They ask us if we needed a lift to the 11k mark. HELLS YES!

We get to the top and after a breif jube jube fight, Schnepf falling in a ditch because he wasnt paying attention and Kinrade getting pissed because he couldnt find the glasses he had on his forehead they asked us if we wanted to ride with them.

HELLS YES!! We hit up three trails, one being Squa-Hollow, another being Rub-her Down and the last being Boss Hog. And the crazy part of it was that we kept up on our hardtails while they were on $10000 DH rigs. I LOVE RIDING WITH PRO'S!!!

pics of some of the trails here.
