Who's gonna be there Friday? I'll come in late and probably will not be able to find anyone in the dark again :D
I will probably be there around 5-ish. Can't wait!

You all have modern cell phones. Southern NJ has good cell reception. So where's the DAMNed picture? :whip:

Particularly the ones (yes plural) of WF fixing flats :lol2:

First some words about the run. Now I know what to tell people when they ask what terrain we've got in Latvia to ride - similar to NJ :)
I really enjoyed it. It was quite a bit faster than I'm riding usually. Small whoops are much easier to deal with than an endless rock trail. To say there were also a large and a giant whoops and sand whoops and mud whoops and root whoops and.. I think you've got the idea :lol2:
Had some crashes - I'm really frustrated that it was forbidden to use cameras there :frustrated: That would've been the best riding video I've taken so far. Once I crashed into a tree, landed some 10 ft closer to the finish :lol2: and left the bike parked against the tree.. upside down. :jack:
Then there was a splat on the ground after the front went out on off chamber downhill. Next day another tree. This time I found a smaller tree so that it can fit in between the tank and frame and so I did that :lol2: Kinda either it was really slippery or I tried to brake while in air I don't remember, but in a result I just went right into that tree. Bike and I are fine, just some hematomas and some broken off turn indicators and probably a bent subframe as the muffler is now polished when the tire comes close on those whoops (that is constantly :D).
In fewer words - a perfect weekend :loveit:

Can't attach pics to my posts from the phone. Not so many pics anyway.
Here are some I took.

WF was so tired this race that he even forgot to get a flat :huh:

Image
Longer snack stop

Image
Today this gas station was available. Saturday there were about zillion riders with bikes waiting in lines. IDK why, we all were good till the next stop and just laughed at them.

A not so big part of campers.

A bonfire getting ready.

Night was cold, but we had beer and couldn't leave it alone! :cheers:

I'm still struggling with the concept of Wingfixer with no flats. :screwy:

You might want to ask him about his front sprocket replacement :angel:

I really can not comment, since I forgot my :censored: helmet and had to buy a new one on-site :frustrated:

Lol thats why everyone was giving you compliments about your helmet, I missed that :killingme:
Front sprocket was replaced in between rides so that doesn't really count as a problem. We had fun giving him a ton of unnecessary advice :lol2:
