Good Way to start the New Year

with a shitty thaw that melted a lot of snow. good new years bash but more importantly the bike got washed and sold. Sad to see it go but it was time. The fish are biting also so that good to hear as we wade into the new season. Things will be on fire in May.

Highland

Was the spot on Saturday with temps in the upper 50's and sunny.There were over 400 people at the mountain. Mer learned what it takes to get to leaned over while the boys shredded Hellion and buzzed gapers. That wraps up the 2010. Can't wait to snowboard.

Sunday, October 31, 2010

wow serious jump session drummer style at Highlands Friday and Saturday. Oliver and I literally buzzed a pack of Cunucks who committed the sin of stopping on a lip.

Eastern States Cup Finals

Wow what a weekend. 10.10.10 Eastern States Cup Finals at Plattekill Mt Roxbury, NY was all about beers and podiums for DR. Oliver took second in the Pro ranks for the series and 7th on the day w/ a mech.
Drummer Racing owned the Cat 1 box with Sam taking the win and series title and Jack placing 2nd on the day and 4th in the series.
TJ placed 3rd for the series in Cat 3. Yeah TJ!!
Mer smoked the competition by 30 seconds in her race for the win (and did not fall either days ) and took 3rd in the series. In retrospect. 2010 was one of the team's most successful years to date.
One race left and its the important one.

GES FINALS

Drummer continues to kill the competition well into the fall as Sammy C. takes his 2nd win of 2010 and places himself 3rd overall for the2010 GES Series in meow 1.

Whiteface

Bikes are getting fixed as Sam Jack and Zach all have some serious wrenching to do.
Whiteface is on the way up this weekend. Course is long and jarring. We did our homework on Saturday, then ripped Killington on Sunday. RESULTS http://www.allsportsevents.com/Results/mountain_bike_results/GES2010/Whiteface2010.html It rained slightly before finals on Sunday. It didn't really disturb the course that much. Sick sick weekend. On to Plattekill for NY STATE CHAMPS!

What a Weekend

This is the e-mail my girlfriend's dad (fellow rider) sent me after seeing our antics at Windham.... Sammy, So, UCI dh World Cup (finals, no less) comes to the east coast, Windham Mt.. A chance in a life-time. Right? Proper track, great weather, nice digs. Where were the hoards of high black sock/Five Ten/flat brim wearin', dh east coasters? Thank god Nicolas Vouilloz (The Almighty) wasn't there to see the lack of insanity. Europe anyone? But, wait. To fill the road gap and more... Enter the Drummer Racing Band of Gypsies. A jammin' 110 decible boom box, vuvuzela, whistle keepin' the flow, Old Glory on a stick and a rag-tag bunch degenerates (or dh'ers, hard to tell) letting the crowd know what's up. (Want some, get some, bad enough, ......) On their way down the mountain, they gave the crowd a reminder of how a dh crowd should misbehave. Good form boys! Thanks for the effort. Old Man

Drummer Racing and company will be making a total ruckus at the World Cup Championship in Windham, NY this weekend. Compound, check. Coolers, check. Cowbells, check. Custom Drummer Racing flag, check. Place your bets (on who will win, or on who will pass out with their shoes and sunglasses still on).

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Plattekill

The compound is headed out to the catskill mountains tomorrow night. Oliver and I both sit in 2nd in the ESC in our respective meows (categories). The weather looks really good and the mountain should be dry. The course wasn't photographed so I don't know what it will include. It will be a nice surprise. RACE REPORT http://live-timing.com/race2.php?r=20147&u=60 The course was a mix of 2009 GES with a different finish that traversed back left of the POC road gap. Super low turn out = no lift line. It was fast on Saturday and pretty dry with everyone taking some big stacks in practice. Then it rained for 10 hours. It was cold and windy at the top on sunday with lots of fog. Finally got some more box but my run didn't feel like it.

Killington GES 6 Results

Great weekend. Long course. Overall results are up on live timing. No injuries or mechanical problems. Dry weather, relatively dry track. So close to box. Moving on to Platty and Eastern States # 6.

Windham WC Final Schedule

http://racewindham.squarespace.com/race-schedule/ so sick. they have it set up so we can watch Saturday wc qualified racers practice, then practice our race course, then race at 3pm sat afternoon.

GES @ Killington

The course is good. 7 a got cleaned up where it needed it and the bottom of 23 is also cleaned up with a new exit. Its long its pedal fest in spots and super tech in others. If it rains it will be a battle. Killington was so dry and fast this weekend. The course is already starting to show some signs of wear with a hole or two popping up. Hoping the weather continues to be awesome into the week.

Skate Park Tour 2010/ Drive Home

So instead of driving straight home to NYC today, I used a website called Concrete Disciples to map out a couple of skate parks that weren't far off of I-91 and I-95. I found Greenfield skate park, which I'd been to before and Milford skate park in Connecticut, which I'd never been to before. Greenfield was sick, had the whole place to myself, rode there for about 45 minutes, super hot, sweat a ton. Milford was super sick. Bit of a puney little "street" section, but the concrete bowl and transitions were a ton of fun to ride. Ended my tour at the Highbridge Park dirt jumps in NYC, which had changed quite a bit since my last time riding there. Took quite a few runs to dial in the new flow of the jumps, made more difficult by the distraction of obnoxious dominicans yelling behind me. Overall, trip was a great success and it certainly won't be the last time.

GES #5 Sugarbush

The course was nasty wide and fast up top. ninja lines were to be had. it wasn't wet but it wasn't dry either. Zach returns to normal with a 6th in pro Mer got the new bike on the podium with a 3rd Oliver threw down another mid pack pro finish with 12 Sam crashed twice but was mid pack in meow 1 with a 422 Jack didn't crash with a 418. Doug had some issues but will rip @ Killington, the next stop for GES. Sugarbush results http://live-timing.com/report.php?r=20101&rp=391966

Proposed Weekend for Drummer Race #2

September 4/5, any opposition?

BVT

Saw Ollie, Mel and Jude getting their Kabob on last night at 10:30 while I was going to KKDs for the dankness. Congrats to Jack and Mer on their new pad in Dub-bury. And I am glad to see that Sammy is learning why RM and other sites are lame-o. Enjoy the backlash, but dont worry, it builds character...haha Hope everyone has been working on their fitness. As Jack said, it's getting intense.

Monday, July 26, 2010

The Bush is upon us

sugarbush returns for a third year as the GES rolls into VT. The next three GES tracks will all be 5 min plus and natural long and nasty. Ski slope and lots of it more swampthings. Oh yeah pracetice is from 10 am - 6 pm. i witnessed a broken bar post race last weekend. no injury but it was cool.

Ridemonkey

Started a thread about Mt. Snow, already regret it, might delete it.

ESC #5

Returns to the last event at Mt Snow. They didn't run the traditional sport beginner. They ran something new but familiar with grassy ski slope muddy ass turns. that were fun. they DID NOT tape the course all that well again. which lead to some freddy lines. results are up. swampthings rule.

Season Update!
THe 2010 season is about 1/3 over.
So far Oliver sits in 8th place for GES in Pro
also in 2nd for ESC
Jack sits in 2nd @ ESC for cat 1.
Sam sits in 6th in GES fro cat 1
Zach has the banged up but not out injury bug.
We are rolling into August which is a stacked month from the start. Get the work until until then.
Killington is doing so much work to make their mountain better. Can't wait for the GES

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Managed to get to Killington twice in the past two weeks. The trails are getting worked on. The cable trail will soon be the jump trail. The GES race course will rival the whiteface 5k. the new entrance to the berm trail is super dope

Warm-Up Weenie

I feel like I've become a bit of a fitness/ warm-up/ cool down weenie as of late but I feel like it is an area that is extremely overlooked. In a very timely manor, this popped up on DirtMag. I think it could certainly benefit all of us. http://dirt.mpora.com/news/prerace-preparation-warm.html

Plattekill GES Results

complete results will be posted when they are up. for Drummer it went like this. Sam got 5/28 made box cat 1 way to go . This kid has two podiums this year. Oli continues to find mid pack in the pros with 15/28 Zach had a big spill on Friday and didn't get a feel for it after that. Jack didn't ride fast enough with cat 1 17/28 not good not good Mer broke in her new bike and didn't fall either days. It was so dry and dusty, so much for east coast mud. The delay to the race really added a mental challenge to a stacked field of competitors, on a course that was laden with landmines that could wreck a race run. GES moves onto Highland Mountain this weekend.

Monday, June 28, 2010

Platty is lookin good this weekend

its ges #3 ESC #4 and from what i heard the course is flow but nothing too gnar except for a chute. oli sam mer and my self will be arriving on Thursday night. Looking to make up lost ground at Mt Snow.

Eastern States See U P

It was a good course. Lots of weird ski slope turns. One huck into a bounce down corner and the politically correct yardsale. It rained right before the race for 15 min. I fell and lost a chance at a top 5 after I told myself not to midrun. but cow bells make your balls bigger. Oli wasn't to far off 4th place in pro click on link for results

7 Spring Results

Not to shabby more consistent results from Drummer. Zach got his mulligan race out of the way early it looks like, which is unfortunate but he will be back on it at Plattekill for GES #3 I just know it. Sam missed box by a couple seconds. Oliver is right in there also. Watching the live timing is almost as good as freecaster.

Killington GES Course Finalized

7 to 21 to 23 it will be an awesome course. there will be some rocks followed by pedaling in the middle then more rocks and then some loam at the end with nice switch back corners. trail 23 is the location of the ultimate 2009 drift witnessed by Bersmefski. set your blasters to fucking super velocity . it could be a 5 min plus race depending on conditions.

Mudfest #2

Jack slayed it this weekend in the mud with a time that would have placed him 4th in the pro field, Oliver posting a solid run in the torrential downpour and finishing 5th in pro stacking some real nice points. Nasty muddy weekend, hoping for the dry at 7 Springs

Whoops

I have a blog for my marketing class as well, posted on the wrong blog

Rogaine Commercial

Yesterday I saw a Rogaine commercial that I thought was very interesting. The commercial depicted a middle aged man (mid 40's) preparing for a job interview with his wife/daughter. He was nervous and anxious but naturally his newly grown hair thanks to Rogaine gave him the confidence he needed to succeed. He comes back home from his job interview and the family rejoices, all thanks to Rogaine. The reason this commercial made me think twice was because it was so clear who the target audience was. Usually with commercials it takes a little bit of detective work to figure out who the product is targeting but not in this case. In a age when unemployment rates are very high middle aged men are getting laid off quite frequently. These men's confidence has been shaken but Rogaine will be there to restore it. Have you noticed any other products that are trying to benefit from the current economic situation?

Drummer Times

got a :56 something on butter/clay and smoked the new berm and the berm above doug's gaper rock scary back seat style x2 . c clay is getting seriously thrashed this spring. got a :58 somethingon edge which is also showing some age and making it nasty. 1:29.00 on threader :31 on powerlines??? soft tires soft ground no pedal. c'mon stopped by Andy's Cycle . Got a much needed spoke wrench. takled to skull crusher a bit. DTM 's order is officially in and will be distrubted accordingly.

The Clay Corner Challenge

I propose a challenge as a subdivision of the Drummer Racing Series.... In the hopes that Zach will be willing to donate his freelap system periodically, we will put the sticks in the exact same place every time and record times down the notorious Clay Corner. We will have a leader board of the fastest times, and the current leader at any given time will hold bragging rights or potentially some other sort of reward (ideas?). Fastest times (unofficial non-freelap) have been in the very low 56's, myself posting a 56:00 in my unofficial re-run at the race two sundays ago (no big deal). I plan on laying down a blistering sub 56 time this weekend when Zach comes, I dare anyone to challenge it.

A friend of mine at school works for the Keene State Paper (The Equinox) and wanted to know if she could do a piece on us as a team for an article she wants to write. I figured that as long as we don't disclose the location of our beloved practice facilities it could be kinda cool. Lemme know what you guys think

2010

It is only March 11 but I'm wicked pumped already for 2010. We should set a date for the Drummer Race. One that doesn't interfere with Zach and Sam's exams. Opener Race @ Platty is late and so is the Open so we have some extra time. doug is still down to build a track @ his house so that would a be a sick project and there is talk of a town pumptrack in winooski... It was sunny as shit all week and in the mid 40's . Daylight savings is Saturday. I need to get my DH bike up and going. Meanwhile a dirtbike is on the backburner. the pump track is expanding now that the ground is half-thawed. if it rains and is 50 this weekend I bet steep n deep will open up. get out the swamp things.

It finally happened after years...

Finally got to snowboard with Oliver and his gang ( rolls deep) @ Jay Peak. Some friends also hooked Mer and I up with new boards and bindings . The Burton Dominant is a dope ride, not to mention pink. This picture has nothing to do with snowboarding and has been floating around the Plattekill.com for a while. It's Cody circa 2004 from the Team Andy days. Meanwhile the snow is melting and the dirt is showing up. The pump track is ripping. Spring 2010 is right around the corner so is Drummer Racing's 7th season ... I'm sure it will be another ripper!

Awesomeness in CO

LIfe is good in CO. Steamboat Sat and Sunday. Crested Butte Wed and Thursday.
Deep deep snow. best riding ever. cody was the adventure drop deep snow guide. also had the mm hook up.

This is why we are #1

Photobucket U-S-A U-S-A U-S-A Just a couple of examples to reinforce how awesome we are. And anyone else notice how the Olympians are some of the scruffiest and most unkempt-looking athletes? (Minus the figure skating crowd) I just think it is awesome that people show up to throw down and not put on a pageant show.

I mean, you better be able to outrun an English Footy Firm, but hey, it will be a great story to tell if you live through the experience.

Ratings would definitely be higher...

Lawyers Lawyers Everywhere

The good news Sam, there are a half dozen injury lawyers in Keene. So, you have options there. On the other had, you're from the city...so you might know my cousin Vinny . He's got a cute fiance who is pretty smaaaaart (accent that) too.

Got drillllllled last night

So, I got pounded by a car last night riding my cannondale. I was just crossing the street with a buddy of mine to go for a street ride at like 9pm and the car stopped for him, didn't see me and pulled out right into my left side. Went to the hospital to get checked out, x-rays came out fine but I'm still pretty damn sore. Tryin to decide if I should sue or not

Some where in the World it is warm, sunny, and summer time. Funny, that sounds just like Australia right about now...and they just held their National Championship race! Kovarik won, making it his 4th in total. Clair, Chris' wife and killer rider took the win in the women's race, but being Canadian was not awarded the "National Champion" title...as she is not an Aussie National.

Vital MTB got me hooked on this game. There are multiple tracks, but i've found this replica of the BMX track in Bejing to be the most fun and challenging. My fastest time so far is 78 seconds to the bottom. Beat Me! http://fr2db.fr/play.php?track=4425

New Trainer: Day 2, with some extras.

Sorry for making you all worry, I did not know I was being monitored so closely. On a lighter note: Things went much better today. Spun for about 25 minutes while watching rugby...it helped me feel manly and go faster. Tweaked the bike a bit to make it more comfortable. I'll put up some pics later. Also, I did not eat a full Italian meal before hand. So that was helpful. Totally different piece of news: Mr. Mark Washkevich is planning on returning for approximately three races in 2010. We are all very excited. Similarly: Former Drummer Racer, Scott Moody and Wifey Sam are expecting a baby girl in August or so. Incredible. And a huge congrats to the them as well! Now, back to watching Comedy Central. Good Stand Up on tonight. har har har har, lots o' laughs.

Trainer Fatality

We haven't heard anything from Zach today so I'm going to assume that his day 2 of training unfortunately killed him. I vote Cody as new team manager, obviously the most responsible.

New Trainer: Day 1

15 minutes. Almost puked. Note: An hour and a half after eating a large dinner...not a good idea. Tomorrow - Should go a little better.
