Mountain Pedaler Shop Owner Charlie Brown rippin down Redneck Ridge Old School...
Last night's VRD race series race was cancelled due to 4 days of rain prior, so we got us a good little posse together to go play in the boneyard. Here's a beaut, I bust ass up the final climb so I can get some killer vij of the group crushin the downhill, and they all decide to head down another way. So I wait for 5 minutes, then 10, then it's getting dark. CB made the trip down old school Rendeck Ridge style so he is the vij star today. Ja-no-brah won the polka dot jersey with an EPO like charge the last 1.5km of the climb, and we all stuffed our faces with Pizza. Beats the hell out of racing.

Many of you missed the Eagle town meeting tonight which was addressing the expansion of the current singletrack system in and around Eagle Ranch. Seems with the exception of just one property owner, and I must admit I can sympathise with the guy and his wife, the project has resounding support and should move forward. Somewhere in the middle of battle I volunteered to chair up our side and it's concerns, which means I will hopefully at some point be communicating with all the above agencies to get things done in a responsible manner. I understand there is a pile of red tape to work through, but if I can get YOU GUYS AND GALS to support the cause we can do it. It won't take much, just sometime here and there as well as some education. I've already contacted my good friend John Bliss at IMBA regarding how to get started...I say let's put our heads down and get this shit done.

I introduce to you, cow 69....a shitting machineHi above the valley in Eagle whence the cows are let loose on our beloved and cherished single track, fuckers have already crapped their way to the tree island below Catwalk. Speaking of Catwalk, I spent many hours up that way today in the rain clearing the way for high speed calamity as well as several hours on the project that keeps giving. The new section of single track I've been working on for the past two seasons is one day closer to being finished. Much of the toughest section was conquered today. This section of old animal trail saw it's first mountain bike tracks from the start to it's finish today, ever, in the history of mankind. It's still rough, but once it opens to the public, you guys and gals can take care of the "clean-up" of Blue Grouse. It's been brutally thick to clear, but it's much closer....Tomorrow is the Charlie Brown birthday ride, meet at the Dusty Boot at 10am.

By the way, I've got VERY GOOD inside information that Cyclocross Nationals is coming to Boulder in 2011 & 2012.
And, it's mom's 82nd birthday. She got a digital pic frame for her surprise this year to which she wondered "how did you get all those pictures in there", to which I simply rolled my eyes on the other side of the phone and wished her happy birthday. Anyone who could have survived AND thrived after raising me as a child and an adult should be put in the parenting hall of fame. You may find this hard to believe, but I was a bit of a pain in the ass growing up.
Elgee feels like this 24/7
The end to a perfect weekend, riding killer Eagle Singletrack at sunset in 65 degree weather.

Ned Overend lines it up to attempt a three peat in the hill climb last year, his effort came up just short of the podium, but he should be back this year. It's sure to be a barn burner and you too can ride the infamous hill climb course from Coors Classics past. Elgee is the race director of this event and look for a special event announcer to join him in the celebration of one of road ridings most notorious hill climb TT's.
