    For those of you unfamiliar with the area, Buena Vista sits immediately east of the Continental Divide. Taylor Park is right on the other side of the Divide from BV, so BV is the closest real town to Taylor Park. Taylor is one of the few places in the world that has a well established trail network where you can frequently get above treeline. The trails tend to be difficult, but beautiful.

    Ben has been working on starting Dubinky for the last couple years. He still has a full time job, but he has managed to develop an exceptional pair of adventure pants and has gotten the company off to a promising start. I own a pair and they are really well thought out. Anyone that wins a pair of Dubinky's at WF (assuming he's giving away a pair) is in for a real treat. :clap

    Thanks Paul. Yes there will be several Dubinky Products given away, I think there may be more than one pair of pants up for grabs:deal

    I hope I will be able to get some other good sponsors so we can have a bunch of cool stuff to give away.

    In! Looking forward to another great summer of CO Rocky Mountain riding. Will cruise back into the state in time for RMAR and WF, and some solo riding in between.

    I hope you can make it, it will be a blast.

    I was almost ready to ask what the PP hill climb was. I did catch myself being from Colorado and all:lol3
