TGMBG II,Pumped to be Stoked

We just got in a while ago from the TGMBG compound. The weekend was off the hook. We had a little rain but no too much,a bunch of good people and good times.Lots of cool bikes,wild dogs,good food and great riding. We had some new people this year,Mike and Anna, new riders but did really well. Jamie was a great rider(with a sick custom Banshee) that was a fun to be around.The regular cast of misfits were there as well. Hambone,Girlscout(AKA Flipflop),'66,Gastro,Highrevs,Braggi ,Wheeliemert,Brian. We had friends roll in and out of camp all weekend. We did'nt do as much riding as normal. My bum knee and gastros cankle slowed things down a little. It's cool becuse we don't guage our fun factor on how long rides are or how many miles we get in. We missed Never and N2bikeN and hope to see those guys soon.Sara,Kuno,Rocky,and Summer kept the camp safe......kinda. I'll relay stories as I remember them but I'll start with a few pics.


The compound........




We had a little wet stuff.....


and a little bed head....

Looks like a good time. Love that Rune! Wheeliemert could probably dirt jump on a unicycle. Seems like I saw a pic of him doing a wheelie on a stair railing once.

Some pics fronm the log ride at DuPont. It's a lot trickier than it looks. The crux is just getting on the thing and lining up.

Braggi......


Girlscout....

Can't see the pics at work but I bet you guys had a great time.

Bryan excels at spectacular recoveries, he practices them a lot.

Nice photos ’66. The bed head photo cracked me up. Here is a group shot from our ride in DuPont on Sunday. We got a little wet towards the end, but that place is sooo much fun.



I should have time to sort out the photos this evening, so stay tuned. There is a bunch of photos that turned out pretty cool from a campsite-bermage session.

I'm really looking forward to seeing those.

I notice in the group pic above, all the cool guys are rockin' the soul patch.

More photos:

Friday night a few of us headed to the Industry Nine shop in Asheville (no pictures there), to do a little dirt jumping and pump track riding, but the rain settled in as soon as we showed up. I left the camera gear in the car due the water/electronics conflict that may have happened if decided to play photo dork. So after hanging out for a bit with the very cool folks at industry nine, we motored on to another local pump track. This track was so sick!!!!
Merritt


A couple of locals




I spent more time talking than anything else (imagine that).

There was a little campsite session that went on Saturday evening. In camp there is a decent size drop with a really rooty run in that Brian and Braggi hit up for a bit.

Brian sending it…


Braggi rolling it..


Then there was the berm-session… it was just a little berm carved into a pile of gravel that got better with every run.

Flipflop (aka girlscout)


‘66


Merritt throwing down some stylezzz…
