It’s officially called Speed and Style. Head to head racing with a time bonus for best style on the big booters.

I’ve been too pinned to shoot and post, but our friends at PinkBike have it covered.

Sea Otter pro pump track build update

The all-star crew is killing it. On Thursday we placed dirt. Friday we shaped. Today (Saturday) we shaped and rode. The track could be raced now, but we’ll spend the next few days getting it super dialed.

For photos and updates, check out the Facebook box at the upper left of this page. While you’re at it, feel free to “like” the Lee Likes Bikes FB page.

Early test lap on the 2011 Sea Otter pro pump track.

2011 Sea Otter Classic pro pump!

I’m still wrangling details, but this much looks certain:

– I’ll be building the track for the 2011 Sea Otter pro pump track comp. Riding legend Jeff Lenosky and I are working on the design.

– The comp will combine elements of speed and style. It will be a head-to-head race with a time bonus for whomever throws the best style off the trick jump.

– I will be teaching clinics on the track! This is extra rad. Refine your pump fu on a world-class track. I’ll post times when I get the schedule.

– As soon as the contract is final, I will assemble the team. If you’re an experienced digger who wants to get paid to build (and ride) a revolutionary track, email me. I’m looking for people who know how to take direction and run with it.

This is going to be sweet.

Lee Likes Cyclocross

When I signed up for yesterday’s Boulder Cup cyclocross in the 35+ Cat 4 class, I had no idea what to expect. As a new CX racer, would I get my ass kicked, or would I kick ass and look like a sandbagger?

I did NOT sandbag, but I did have fun.

Protection for kid racing Super D


My son wants to start racing super d at diablo in there first time beginner class. my question is does he need a collar like i see the downhillers wearing? also what about a chest protector? He is 13 and bullet proof.

I realize that they are expensive but much cheaper than being paralyzed.

What are your thoughts?

thanks Jim
