    Flanny, how about some Flanny-vision! Give us something to watch.

    p.s. and please post an updated hand photo. Is it still hugely swollen?

    I'll post some stuff up this weekend. And yes - the hand is still pretty swolen, and seems to hurt more and more each day.

    Looks like I signed a little bit of artwork for your office wall, but I really think this deserves some space on the wall.

    Wow! Great report & pics. Looks like you guys had a blast.
    Reading the report kinda begs a question though as that you all wore dresses.
    Where you guys sharing rooms? Sleeping together? Hmm...:augie

    Same here, the last three injuries I had, I said they were all from hiking. The last two happened within 3 months of each other and the doc (who had seen me for the previous injury) looked at me as if to say, "I know you are lying".

    Hikiing is a dngeous sport don't cha know...

    Whaddya talkin' about??? :deal
    This thread's full of killer photos:thumb

    Photo question for you guys:

    Are you riding ahead to get into position for when the others ride by?
    It takes time and interrupts the flow of a ride to get great photos,
    how do the logistics of that work without pissing everybody off? It must be a hell of a lot easier when there's a bunch of photographers in the crew!

    Mostly we ride ahead. Sometimes we find a good spot and we'll ride around for a little bit. The only person who really got pissed was Chris and that's because he was the only person without e-start and he broke his kickstand on the second day and his bike is tall and it was hard for him to start the bike. So sometimes I'd find a place with no trees or rock walls, hopefully really off camber and then I'd try to come up with a shot just to twist his chain. :evil

    Other than that we found good stuff everywhere. Moab is pretty amazing - Stevie Wonder could take good shots there.

    Just looking at this photo you can smell the dirt and brush in the air. That's some great footage for the front page.:clap

    Very cool Ride Report! I dream at night of riding dirt hills like those you guys rode around Grand Junction. Kinda soft with tons of knobby traction, yet steep and seriously technical. Very cool. Thanks for posting! :super

    Some more shots of that place from an old ride report, which gives a sense of where the video was shot:
