More Richmond vids

Another Thursday ride and some new sections open on the Richmond track. I got off the bike long enough to shoot these while there was still some light.

A new section of singletrack in the upper woods, I'm pretty sure these guys are faster than me...

and I know this dude is faster than me!

This is a long side-hill that turns into a tricky hillclimb with some nasty roots at the bottom. I'll get some footage from the bottom next week.

Couple guys pushing each other.

Thursday at Richmond

Thursday rides are on. Another great evening at Richmond. I went early to help open up some new singletrack loops. We've added some great new sections, I'll try to get some vids next time out. For now, here are some shorts of the sand sections;

The upper section starts from a lower woods loop;

The lower section starts from the main woods trail;

Seamus, digging his plush new suspension!

Jason stashed the snowboard, brought out the KDX.

Plastic Riders

There's more where these came from...

A typical sample of competition trophies, mostly 2nds 3rds and 4ths, but a few 1sts in there. We've got boxes of 'em from about 10+ years of racing.

April 5th...

We woke up to this...

Fact is it's been raining since Friday, and I wouldn't have been able to ride today anyway but this sealed the deal. Maybe I'll do some track prep somewhere. I should be working on one of the three bikes in the garage right now, the Triumph, the KTM or the YZ, but I'm not inspired. Cold, dark and damp.

Beyond the pines you can see, I've laid out a nice singletrack course that I can't wait to try, but it will probably have to wait another month to dry. We'll see...
