Girlscout dances at National

The NORBA National at Sugar Mtn was off the hook. Tha DH course was super steep,nasty and hard. I only got a couple of shots of girlscout. Highrevs and his crew were there. It was a super good time. It was the first time I've gotten to see some of the top pros at race speed on really hard stuff. Wow,they make it look easy! Girlscout was stoked he got 2nd in his first big DH race.

Girlscout on course.....




Dancing on the podium.Big props to Chris Herndon for the DH tips and Sycamore Cycles for the sonsorship help.

Thanks you guys. The course was really,really hard but the most fun thing I've ever been on. I had a blast racing. I went to my LBS today and they hooked me up with a new race jersey (freebie) and new skins (half price).I'll do a report on the new tires later on.

Expert and pro only. I wanted to hit it bad. It was the fastest way.

could you please list all the classes at an event like this? and how many racers would you say were there for the day? are there like plus 25 and plus 30 age groups?

are these all timed events or do you ever run head to head with others? i have seen photos of multiple riders but i thought is was all timed?

if there are multiple riders what is generally the max allowed at the gate?

what percentage of racers would you say use clipless pedals?

does anyone use a HT?

sorry for all the questions, i am genuinely interested but don't feel like trying to search all the ansers on net.

Saw you do that... I was looking for that Sycamore jersey & the black enduro... SO cool!! Of course, hanging with the XCer's, we all had a HUGE celebration with Nick Waite's 1st ever NORBA Pro podium finish with 5th place.

Just one question about NC - why do they bother to pave RT 194?!?

I don't know why they do a lot of things. Did you see the guy with the drum kit up on the XC course?

He's a real small 13. The joke around here is he looks like a bobble head doll with that helmet on.
