H'mmmm maybe I'll ride champ That would get Sammy! Sections are all set but for one. All very close to the pavilion except for 3 lowers on Sunday, which are about 250 yards from there. Parking in the "BEAR" parking lot. Sorry you can't make it lineaway.

Thanks!!

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for a great weekend at Taos! I have never had more fun on 2 wheels (t least I was on 2 wheels most of the time ), and NEVER met a nicer, more gracious, and helpful bunch of folks. Everybody was so good to the noob, it was almost overwhelming! I promise not to skulk out early next time, and will be around to help score. I also want to volunteer for at least the 3rd, and am working on the 4th, for scoring at the national.
Thanks again all, signed the world's oldest rookie .

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

I couldn't make it, so how was it? All that I have heard was that it rained on the uppers but that is no big surprise.

Where are the pics??

Glad you made it up and had a great time! Hope no lasting effects from the crash in #5 on Sunday...looked like it could have been a real head knocker!

Only rode Sunday, but very short loop and different sections than we are used to. Three sections near the shops (one on stairs and two on rock along the sidewalk), two in a construction area (one through a murky pit fill of water) and four right next to each other on a hillside full of aspen. Quick and sweet! Probably would have been a pretty easy trials were it not for the rain, but with everything soaking wet, it was about perfect! Fun day!! ...(but no pics)

I think the rock got the worst of it, I left quietly so I didn't have to fill out an environmental impact statement
