More Cow Bell Please

In an effort to stick it to "The Man," I am protesting nationals and have returned home to Colorado to enjoy real trails, in real mountains with real dirt.

This is the kind of stuff that gets my chamois all up in a bundle..... NORBA should be trying to progress our sport and racing with courses that highlight mountain bikes features.... Scope out Colt's pics of the course.... Enough said.

Regardless.... Here's to getting dirty! Good luck to all my peeps out there representing for the good ole U.S. of A.

My money is on Rad Ross for the break through of the year award, he has a chance to podium in every event (If they gave him a full face and a DH bike he would podium in that too) and I pretty sure he will.

Bump a couple foreigners off this box and Ross is nearly on top. The regional flag looks pretty good up on the podium.... Keep it up ya'll.

Yep, NORBA and the USCF had really put some serious thought into the layout of the Nationals events this year. Very progressive. Yep....bummer. Hey, good racing by you this year man!

Maybe there was a really big snow year and the venue for the national championships had to change. Successful people work to remedy or improve situations, pessimists point out the existing shortcomings.

The people at Sonoma threw down their best, everyone raced on the same track and hats off to Georgia Gould and the Kona boys for scoring their first national championships instead of sitting at home complaining about the venue.

point understood.... regardless, venues like Sonoma are unmotivating for athletes to travel long distances to and spend hard earned cash to visit "the pain cave" on lame trails. Venues like Vail, Keystone, and Angel Fire would have been higher on my list of places for Nationals than Sonoma.

I didn't run across this post until Aug. 3rd. At that point, your link to "this is lame" directs me to another person's blog. Was their post lame, or are you calling them lame?

What's lame is all the lame name calling.

colt's site is in NO way lame... what I was referring to was the course at nationals and he had posted pics of it... I am not in this game for name callin...
