Don't be bitter just because you were out voted 5 to 1.

hahahah, not bitter…I just always operate on the fact that if it's wet and slimy and gross in the bikepark, it's awesome everywhere else in the valley!

Like Pemberton!

If I'm heading up to Whistler to ride, I'm bringing either the XC/AM bike or the park bike, not likely to bring both. Which location I'm riding changes a lot of other stuff too, which helmet, armour, spare parts to bring.

Is the dirty merchant a giant reroute because of the softness? Or are they making big changes to it?

Garbo opening this weekend, but me thinks it will be very muddy up top. Anybody see anything on DM lately? Is it that muddy that it cannot be opened?

Yup. Today did not suck. Except for my headtube cracking. I wondered what that noise was on the rock drop..

Is there a Vancouver in Taiwan?! I had no idea!!

Nothing sums up my life's achievements like my stuffed corpse, suplexing a cougar.

Weather isnt looking too great for tomorrow - still worth hitting the park tomorrow or will it be too wet? Weather forcecast looks like most of the rain is happening in the evening though so maybe not too bad.

It was raining hard as we left the village today. Gonna be very messy up there.

Was pretty much perfect today. Merchant was still Rutabaga'd… some prefer this line, but I like the other line better.

Oh ya, did a warmup lap on CIU as the top was open. What happened there? It is a mess… worse than it was on opening day.
