I was talking with oneeyedwiley about doing some riding this weekend. I'll see if he wants to do the loop instead of riding out of his house. His stuff is tight and nasty which is good for him but bad for me and the blue land yacht.

I have noticed on board camera footage from trail riding does not accurately depict how difficult the terrain actually is. The videos do not do a good job of displaying steepness of hills or contrasting the scale of rocks, logs etc.

Reminds me of NHL Hockey. Television coverage has gotten a lot better over the years of the NHL, but there is still a huge difference in viewing an NHL game live vice on the tube. The speed of both the puck and the players just does not translate well onto television.

With this in mind, I could still SEE from your video and the number of get offs you experienced that that was some genuine ball busting terrain combined with VERY slick riding conditions. You had me sweating and trying to see through fogged up goggles while sitting on my couch.

Your monologue was absolutely HILARIOUS!!!!


Good job and thanks for posting, that was really enjoyable (in a painful sort of way).


PS: Bet you felt real nice the next morning, was an entire bottle of Motrin enough ??

PS II: How much shit did you break on your bike??

ROFL!


That tight twisty singletrack downhill stuff was gruesome. I think I fell about 3+ times in that first section



I couldn't tell where you went for the go-around on that nasty hill climb, but at least I know I got a little bit higher up (maybe one bikes length the first time I tried.

Then when the sweepers came thru, they showed me a line directly to the left of the hill- in the grass- I sat as far back on my seat as possible and tractored right up it- but there was no way in hell with a trials tire I was getting up the slick ascent that there was a pile-up at on your video.

I had a GREAT time at the event, even without the snow. I think I have prior obligations otherwise I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Riding up and down Soapstone was a blast, I highly recommend it.

edit: I made a video in case anyone is interested in checking it out. I tried to make it fairly interesting, if you find watching C class riders interesting that is.


Brings back some good memories. Nice work on the Ice hill at 11:45. It took me 5 min to get up that hill. You tractor to the top no prob.
