This first slideshow below is mostly flatland pics. I added some pics of me in there towards the end, just to prove that I brought a bike with me. Thanks to Tony Donaldson and Jorge Luzuriaga for those shots! There was some great riding from everyone. James McGraw and Todd Carter were tearing it up, but Eric Stefano, Jorge Luzuriaga, Gabe Weed, Dave Nourie, Rick Allison, Martin Aparijo, Yellow, and more were rippin' too. I wish I had gotten pics of everyone, but I didn't...(If you're reading on an iPhone/iPad, here's the link to the photos as the slideshow uses Flash) Read More>>>
I didn't take as many pics as I normally do, and because of that, I missed many people, and much of the action...
The plan was that we'd meet up in LA, get a rental car, and head up to OSBMXR for a weekend of riding and reminiscing.
Unfortunately, I cursed him. As an emergency medicine provider, I told him that I didn't want to "work" this weekend. That set the jinx machine in to overdrive and resulted in Keith taking a pretty nasty crash on Saturday afternoon.
We did get to hang out and have some fun, but that certainly put a damper on things.
Anyway, he's home and in good hands now... his wife is a nurse for an orthopedic surgeon. I hope he's got a smooth recovery.
While it will be a few months before he's shredding again, I do have some pics. Keith is the guy in the red shirt, and there are some other random pics in here as well. (If you're reading on an iPhone/iPad, here's the link to the photos as the slideshow uses Flash)
I've got some video that I still need to go through, so look for that soon.
In the meantime, I've got plenty of people to thank...
