It might take me awhile to express how amazing our weekend at Ray’s Indoor MTB Park truly was. Even when I get around to writing about it, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to describe just how much fun we had – kidnapping Bob, the laughs, the road trip, the jokes, the great food, the laughs, the new nicknames, the laughs, and of course the riding. It was a weekend by which all other weekends will be measured, and in measuring, all other weekends will pale in comparison.
In the meantime, however, here is a video of some of our “outtakes” from Ray’s. Just remember, this video doesn’t even compare to how it really was, but you can tell we had a blast… even when we were screwing up (which we did A LOT!). Enjoy…
As you can see, there were no videos of Kage crashing her bike. That’s because her skills are far superior to ours… Or it’s because she is a crash ninja and only crashed when no one was there to witness it. You decide.
I’d like to thank my teammates for joining the celebration of Bob’s upcoming wedding. It couldn’t have happened without you guys.
And I’d like to tell Bob that we really do love you, man. Seriously. Good luck in your new life. Please don’t forget us. We’ll never forget you… And we’ll never forget this weekend.
In case you haven’t seen some of our videos, I thought we would share some or our greatest hits with you to brighten your day as you head into the weekend. All but one of the clips are between 8 and 36 seconds, so it won’t take very long to view them. And as always, let us know what you think in the comments section. Here you go…
Take a gander at this clip of Bob getting “caught from behind” at Syllamo:
And here’s my failed attempt at riding the same rocks at Syllamo:
Here’s a clip of Bob just having fun blazing his own path at Castlewood State Park, and note my encouraging words convincing Bob to go for it:
Back when Zack was on the team, he provided a ton of entertainment. Here’s a clip of Zack trying to bunny-hop a log on the Bittersweet Trail down at Lake of the Ozarks:
Here’s a second camera angle of the failed bunny-hop, and it’s worth watching just to hear Bob laugh his ass off:
This is perhaps the funniest video we’ve ever shot (also of Zack at Bittersweet), and if this doesn’t make you laugh, then you really need to seek psychiatric help right now. Bob’s reaction and my triumphant “YESSS!!!” at the end are just icing on the cake. Enjoy:
Well, we hope you enjoyed that stroll down memory lane as well as the new clip of Bob’s crash. We really need to start filming more of our escapades, don’t we? Until next time, Ciao!
