I’m sure Vincent will come on line soon, but i had to start it off.
solid, solid gear: re-inforced car; metal spool (no woble); huge rubber tire the fire hydrant that i love, etc… even the bike trials dudes came over and rocked the gear. the only thing that broke was Owens square taper axle. it came clean off after a 5ft. drop.
joel keeps ripping it up more and more every comp i see him at. look out for this guy!
the beginer catagory was won by cindy. it is awsome to see female participants let alone female podium finishers. her and her sister were also on the mountain ride.
80cm was the winning height for the high jump.
there was a beginer all the way from niagra falls. unfortunatly i forgot his name, anyone know it? i must say, there was an awsome beginer turn out.
vincent of course ripped it up for the ultimate victory. there’s hilariouse footage of his twenty attempts to ride a steep angled log up onto the car. will you guy’s get some highlite footage up?
for a first comp ever in quebec city there were 20 riders and a sunny day. it was well organized and everyone was well recieved.
the next was a friendly mountain ride on the imfamouse mt ste-anne. free passes to get up!!! an easier route was chosen because a number of riders were going on their first mountain ride. then a few of us played around on the northshore stuff.
even if it is a bike event (velirium), it is an awsome venue within which to have a comp. you’ve got the bike pro’s from all over the world in town and the energy is fantastic. i’m already looking forward to next year.
a huge thanks to vertisim - simmon, geraldine and vincent in particular, for putting all sorts of energy into this event.
