Fluidride Cup #1

results???

They are not up yet. I keep checking http://fluidrideracing.com/results/
Petr and crew would have a long ride back down to Mt. Hood though, so might be a day or two.

EDIT: Pinkbike with the scoop. There is a link in their article.

Advertising in TV shows and movies.

I like skipping my adverts, so when they become a blatant part of the content of the show I'm watching, then it irritates me. I'm fine with product shown quietly off to the side, but when it's a scene and the dialogue is an advert, then that's just bad.

LOL. The PVR killed your tv viewing pleasure. The 'blogs' figured this would happen a few years ago. Fewer people are watching 'live tv' instead they are recording and skipping commercials.

Cypress bike park: the future of DH?

It is a waiting game.. but trust me if they ever open I will one of the first ones in line to hold a BC Cup there… way too much fun.

If it were to happen, let me know Dan, I will partner with you. We could give the BC Cup a race they will never forget. :)

LOL. We'll see, the paper may have miss quoted him too, I don't know yet. I expect this unfortunate incident to be a catalyst for positive movement.

I have noticed the problems arising since Kim returned from Whistler as well. :)

Then O'Neal should stop making retarded comments in the paper. A smarter response would have included something like "but we're working with local user groups to implement better signage, etc etc".

That was all part of my emails to them. We will see how things progress.

Everyone cool your jets.

We're in discussions with the powers that be. The response so far looks promising and all will be well.

+1 for you.

+1, I dont understand shuttling :hurt:

Where does the exercise part of mtb fit in when you do that?

By cranking out multiple hot fast laps of the downhill. Two totally different disciplines of this spectacular sport. :)

Going free for all on a long weekend with another race in progress was poor foresight.

Missing out after a month of 'license only registration' is even worse foresight I think. It's not like it was a secret or anything.
I don't think any of the license money goes to put on the races, it goes to insurance, sanctioning and such. THe money to put on the race, that is all on the shoulders of the organizers, using their concessions and spending money at the event really helps put on the race.

Are you referring sgarstin dude? I hope so.
I was just in Marzocchi at the same time as you, chill.

That would be Simon Stevenson I think. Is he going to be hitting up some other races as well? Last year I think he stuck to just the Island races.
