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.

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.

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.

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

Note Rachel Atherton's use of our very own "The Stick" at 5:15 of the newest Atherton video. These videos can be kinda lame but this one is worth watching all the way through. US Open + Fort William http://www.vitalmtb.com/videos/member/The-Atherton-Project-2010-Episode-5,3023/bturman,109

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
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.
