Is this the Trials World Championship? Hike-a-bike Worlds?
“Is this the Trials World Championship? Hike-a-bike Worlds?”
its neither. Its SSWC09 I think… sweet and tech trails. Es mucho mas sweeter if you ride this section.
es mucho mas sweeter WHEN at least half the competitors can RIDE in a BIKE race. Riding UP Anasazi DESCENT? come on. we all know it’s durango home of all the famed cyclists, but why go so far over the top? seriously. think about it. there is extreme toughness within reason and extreme lunacy without reason. check the science of past SSWC courses, nothing this absurd. and i’ve finished SSWC 002-008.
It’s WORLDS, not your district time trial group ride.
Mob that shit, bitch.
Badass. Hella. Money talks.
Junkie Joe – would have to agree – I have yet to attend/ride in an sswc and am happy to be here to ride this one- but noteworthy is the absence of the Hurl, Geno, Stevil, types, from this year – not sure what is going on – shark jumping, becoming too much of a race (and an over-the-top one at that)???? I don’t know – but the folks and culture that attracted me to this scene seem to be fading from sswc….I suspect these organizers are planning to print results…which basically would signal the end of the spirit of this event – next year – mandatory lycra….?

D-Town organizers of SSWC 09 are the best in the country! Yeah we’re coming to race, but first to see them boys. They hit up events all over the country, supporting everyone and everything, sometimes in Cub Scout uniforms, sometimes in spandex. SA- be trendy-crazy and wear your played out pink tutu. That’s the shit! Like living in LA. But if you try bashing the organizers for designing a race route too tough for your skills, 1. Don’t go. Or even better- 2. Suck it up. 3. Throw down with the D09 crew, you’ll love ’em. 4. Let’s hug.
Anyway, I’m training for Saturday- drunk again.
hang on – really good episode of seinfeld on (car dealership, twix bar, elaine/putty) ..drunk again here too. – will respond soon..
Really tough course.
I hear that lots of small children, old women and the wheelchair bound have decided that this may be too much for them.
Up Anasazi Junkie Joe? Where’d you get that map? Looks more like down Secret, hike-a-bike through the meadow on a 1:1, up the quarry to cold beer served by “drunk again” small children, old women and the wheelchair bound all weaing pink lycra cub scout tutus in a tank full of result tallying sharks watching old Seinfeld episodes with some cat named Hurl.
The course is so freaking sweet!!!! Durango did a great job on this one!
