    I walked that track after the race. There was a square edged rock chute that I had to turn around to "climb" down. Parts of that track was the hardest I've even been on.

    Just had my old VHS tape transferred to DVD! This video is what got me stoked on DH and mtn bikes in general. I so wanted that cannondale fulcrum. How is it that we haven't had a WC on the west coast ever since? Mammoth or Squaw would be awesome!

    ...and now they race "downhill" in Fontana. Someone killed american mtb racing along the way.

    Good old narrow bars. When I raced there I ended up with 60 psi in my tires to avoid flats. No joke. Hey Vital, can we get Telluride next? Is there even any good footage of that race?
