Thunder+Lightning+Rain+No Electricity=Good Bike Racing

The 2007 MSC Eldora Escape withstood powerful storms & no electricity to crown a new Single Speed State Champion in Mark Legg Compton. While rain chased spectators under vendor tents the races & fun continued. As they say, the show must go on. Here are some views from the weekend's event. Despite missing some of our crew Monique continued her winning ways & was able to get Oskar Blues the top spot in the women's expert race, way to rip MO!

The vibes of Mountain States Cup G3 Gravity Series combined with the solid Sol Vista Resort & plenty of Dales Pale Ale & beer can chicken created a weekend to remember. We had some mental/technical issues & can't provide pictorial proof, but you can bet your sweet behind it was throwback style fun.
There are very few things in this life that are guaranteed. I believe one of them is that if you ride bikes long enough your shoulder will have some commonalities with ours.
This coming week Oskar Blues joins forces with YETI & heads to Crested Butte for their annual TRIBE gathering. Looks like I'll throw a leg over a legendary Colorado built mountain bike for the first time, stay tuned!
