This would not come as a huge surprise to those in the know, but it would still be sad to see because I know I wanted to see this happen in a BIG way. Hopefully things pull through and it stays, but the UCI is a picky mother and Windham dropped the ball when it was under the gun and had the eyes of the MTB World glued to it. Only time will tell if this is actually a rumor or not. Yikes. (For more information perhaps supporting this potential decision, read the collectors edition of Decline that came out in October. The article in question was written by Matt Delorme and brings the issues at hand to light).

The header is new and improved at Mer's request, picture is from the old Vital, aka Litter Mag, from Schaldming in 2008 taken by Damien Breach. In other news, XC rides at Saxon Hill on a DH bike while sick as a dog are not highly recommended. Fun, but harsh. The Rt. 7 pump track saw me for the first time yesterday. Good fun in the dirt with Jack and Jay. Some digging to be done soon. And at some point we should have a legit team meeting if people are down, basically just to voice ideas and air grievances while holding onto the ceremonial boobar. That is all I have for the moment.

Had a blast riding at Diablo closing weekend. Saturday kinda sucked, it rained all day and the lift line was longer than it was at the U.S. Open. However, Sunday was one of the best riding days I've had all season and made it all worth while. Rode most of the day with Sue and her bros from VT. (awesome pose) then linked up with Memmelar and Gavin Vaughn and tried to keep up with them for a couple of runs, which was awesome. For the last run of the day, everyone waited at the top till they shut the lift down and trained the whole upper mountain down dominion to the top of alpine. At Alpine, someone suggested the idea of a Le Mans style race, so we all put our bikes down, and hiked up the hill. Thanks to my strategically placed bike and getting the wholeshot I won the Le Mans race! Great way to end the season at Diablo. Yuroshek took some helmet cam footy of all the shinnanigans, which can be viewed here.... http://www.vitalmtb.com/videos/member/Diablo-FreeRide-Parks-Last-Run-Down-Train-of-2009,753/Yuroshek,1184
