Sweet Ride!

Yuri on the Le Mans start.

Katie remarking, "Yeah, we'll kick some ass."

Chris Walker's stunt double.

The Woods' came out to cheer with their 'lil bruiser, Ryan.

Siren Cycles

Brendan had a pretty nice display of bikes.

Katie's new single speed on display.

Libby feeling good after her first lap.

Where we met five years ago. Somewhat of an anniversary.

Plus, it was Valentine's Day. The little lady outdid herself with the cake.

Hey, what's on tv?

Team Hosie Cow had the beer flowing through the night.

Special camp guest; Dave the Gnome.

Some other gnome...

Chris Walker's stunt double being welcomed back to town after an evening lap.

1:30am. Frazzled after riding 3/4 of the course without a light. Following wheels thru cactus-lined trail tests the nerves.

Free Vodka!
Saw this guy before I went out on my last lap. I decided to stop for my free vodka and consumed half a cup. Needless to say, I was drunk by the time I rode WAHOO rock.

Katie and team won the women's 4 person and beat team Luna Chicks.

Team Pussy Power.

Thanks for playing!

What started out looking like a great morning for a ride soon soured with the greeting of "anyone got a spare seat clamp bolt?" WTF, mate?

Technically, it was four things.

Nathan drilled out the stripped bolt and rigged Walker something special.

1. Seat clamp bolt.
2. Valve stem torn off inner tube.
3. After bummin a spare tube, tear in tire sidewall becomes apparent upon inflation.
4. Freshly bummed tube punctures, thus ending Walker's day before he even clipped in.

DEAN. Don't Expect Anything but Neglect.

"Hey, did you check that tire for thorns?"

Looks like we weren't the only ones having fun in the parking lot.

Screw you guys. Going home.

JePh dropping in.
