The Great Spring Norcal Adventure of 2007, Day 1
Sea Otter ho! Yesterday/today Zach Griffith and I drove straight from Boulder to Marin (it took 20 hours with heavy snow), and today we tasted the goodness in a big way.
XC with Mark Weir
Yeah, I know, always a hard thing; not always a good thing. He invited us on a “one and a half hour ride,” which in Weirspeak means you leave from his house, do a long approach, do a 90-minute+ climb, rip the descent and then ride back home.
The weather was perfect, the climbs were huge, the views were stunning and the descents were braaap. Good stuff.
Pumping it Up
Since I visited last Fall, Weir has doubled the size of his pump track. It’s even more ridiculous — and more flowy — than before. Give an obsessive man a mission, and he’ll take it all the way …
Zach and I were beat after the drive and the XC ride, but we had a great pump. I look forward to a mega sesh next week after the Otter.
Next: Tomorrow we arrive at the Otter, set up camp, register and walk the DH course. I’ll be off the radar until at least Monday. Rock it!
My brother and I leave for Sea Otter tonight…….driving straight through from Oklahoma City to Monterey. Hope to meet you out there Lee it would be great to pick your brain. We have started our pump track…..it’s about a third done but we have been battling the rain out here. Word
Good stuff Lee. After the Sea Beaver it’s on! The lounge will be full at the end of the day.
Hey Lee, now I know why it started raining today. I didn’t realize you were in town already!
Hope you stay a little dryer than last year.
Seriously, I bring bad weather for all — and disappointment for my competitors … 🙂
Yesterday was SO fun, but I am worked!!!!
I’m suffering from an acute case of Weir-itis …
Don’t really have anything to say except “DAMN!” Good luck and the Otter. I look forward to seeing lots of pictures of you saying “BRAAAAAAAAP!!!!!”
The Pic of your track in Decline is a thing of beauty! Inspirational to say the least, makes me want to rip the rest of my yard out and ad on. The â€œBetter Homes and Pump Tracksâ€ bar has just been raised (again by you). Keep on Pumpin on
Glad you made it, Lee….wondering if the Boulder monkey gang has arrived to practice. Anxious for news….(mom)
