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).

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 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.

Windham WC Final 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.
