    Is it mostly trail riding drills on your own bike?

    Structured drills with your own bike plus multiple laps of a fairly technical trail to test your new skills. If I were to do it over again , I bring a smaller bike than my DR 650

    That's a tough one. First Palmer track event of the year is that sun/mon. I don't like to miss that. Riding Stimilon sat and the party increses my likelyhood of NOT riding sunday about tenfold. LOL

    But.... it's Stimilon.....

    Think this DirtWise School may have to happen, looking like I'll be trying to squeeze in Cornerspin in late March as well.... Oh man, I better hit the bicycle.

    Believe me. I am one of the founders of the nesr stimilon effort. I wish I could do it all.

    Watts dates work for me. I would also like do do supercamp next spring.

    Like I said I did it last year with flipped r6. I was a total newb and liked it. But being a bit more seasoned. I would pass. I thought it was more suited to mx than woods riding. Frim what it sounds like what you guys do I don't think it's totally 100% helpful.

    ^ hmm, was going to ask that. did you guys do the 'in-depth' or 'fundamentals' session? interesting that it felt more MX focused.

    Shane's basic drills are great so i'm sure i'd get a lot out of it but for ~$400 i'm curious to hear what the drills were like.
