Great pictures!!! Looks like I really missed out on this one. :cry:
Because in the end it has almost nothing to do with the bike and everything to do with setting
out to accomplish something that is intimidating, that is unknown to you, something you know you
have a good chance of failing at but doing it anyways and slowly but surely proving yourself wrong.

Believe it or not, that's the tight section of Fish Creek Wash right at the bottom of Diablo Dropoff. It has really changed.

Oh yeah, there's some big 'ol rocks in there. I wasn't paying attention and got hung up on that boulder right in the middle. You got swing wide left so that your rear passenger tire is on it when you roll off, otherwise it'll snag a diff or shock mount. :D

I want to thank everyone who was involved in organizing this event. I had one of the best weekends in long time. I am pretty new into offroading and this trip exceeded my expectations.

I also would like to thank John for been a great leader. He was able to get us all out of the trail safely. I lost my step boards in the way, but it was a lot of fun!!! :lol: :oops:


I will post the videos later.

I'm sorry I couldn't go on that run...

The pictures are awesome, and it looks like everyone had a great time. :D
