    I finally went through the pics on my memory cards, did anyone get any pics of that converted 3 wheeler side car contraption? I can't find that thing in any of the pics.

    Cool! Where was that first photo taken, and was it on the CAM ride? I'd like to try that section of trail next year. Have fun on the NM trip. Sad I can't make it but happy for all you guys. PERFECT weather here for riding and beautiful from all the rains. Some colors changing up high, etc, etc... Have an awesome time, and look forward to riding with you guy's next year!

    That is the talus field down from Italian Mountain.....just east of Crested Butte.


    Yes, we rode the big, loaded bikes through that nasty stuff. I would not recommend doing it alone. Get a partner or two to ride with you.

    A lot of those photos bring me back to the days when I lived in DEN and raced the RMEC.

    I have often said that the ONLY thing I miss about living in Denver was the dirtbike riding in the mountains of Colorado.

    It's world class!

    Thanks for the report!

    Big John, Great video that brought back a flood of memories.

    Thank you very much for taking the time and effort to, once again, put together a superb video which captures the true spirit of the RMAR CAM 1000.

    Big Ticket, Noticed a fair amount of the video was shot by you. Thanks brother. I still remember distinctly asking you what the key was to riding the rocks fast......just a few minutes before......well you know....

    To all the folks that contributed video and pictures to allow production of the final product, thank you. It will make wintering over up in New Hampshire bearable!
