Here is my buddy Bill starring in our own REI commercial. We circled the bikes to block the wind. It worked! It was chilly but I slept like a baby. It dropped down to into the 20s. BRR!

Was also there over the entire wknd. I can't say enough good about the whole show. Not a dull moment over all three days. The 2 announcers kept the crowd very entertained and we had no doubt who was the next competitor up the hill. Can't wait until next year. With this event being so close to home (4 hr drive) it was very well worth taking it in. I just can't say enough good about it. Just sorry for the folks that weren't there to see for themselves. And a very big THANK YOU to the landowner and all who helped put on a very classy event.

I only seen the Sunday show and knew that it would be everything I'd hoped. Those of you on the bubble about attending missed out. A trip to Billings or Columbus climbs very well might be on my agenda.

Agreed, my only regret was having to leave before it was over on Sunday.............next year I want to take Monday off so I can stay til the end on Sunday.


Am I the only one who got pics of the hill climb?








I wish I could have stayed to watch them jump the wall.

Later runs! Didn't stop some guys from doing it during it during earlier runs. If you have never been to one of these things you are really missing out.

Nice to have met Mr. Rash himself!

Attended the hillclimb most of the day saturday.

Woke up in my motel room in Sunnyside on sunday morning about 5:00am and had an itch to rip up hwy 241 as the sun rose. The highway was deserted, the air crisp and my heated gear was working great. It dosen't get much better than that.

Rode through camp about 06:30 on my Ulysses. Not sure if any of you ff's heard me. I tried to be quiet, but a Buell with a drummer can only be so quiet.

Rode home on sunday via hwy 17, Canyon road, and watched the Cossaks in Ellensburg.

The weather was perfect, the hillclimb was great, and the riding was awesome.

BTW, the beer at Snipes brewery was good, too.
