    Re: STIMILON 2017

    I take it you got the email from Davo with no mention of Stimilon? One of the dates for Stimfest is at NHMX so there must be some kind of relationship remaining.

    I messaged him on Facebook a couple days ago.

    He said he's working on getting a venue and date.

    Re: STIMILON 2017

    According to the email, the lions share of his ride days this season are at ctmx.

    I've been there, haven't ridden it, thought it was closing permanently at the end of last season, and was told by a good friend not to bother riding it because the soil is either blue hardpan or slick n slimy thin mud over hard pan, depending on how recently it rained or flooded the floodplain that the whole track sits it.

    Kind of a bummer, I'm surprised his ride days work there, since you can ride it 3x a week for less money during their regular business hours

    It does get a little slimy when freshly watered, but that's no reason not to ride it. It's a classic track.

    Yeah, never listen to friends about surf or riding conditions. LOL. I thought they were closing. But now I will try to go this year. I haven't ridden there in a long time.

    Re: STIMILON 2017

    Speaking of surfing friends, I found out last night that the nearly pro surfer level new boyfriend of my daughter (who's been living in Australia for the past two years) borrowed the board I left there, with my daughters permission of course, and snapped the nose off when he got caught under the lip while duckdiving a huge wave. He's never met me except on FaceTime so it's kinda funny to hear how stressed he was about snapping my board...

    I'm not too concerned, don't know if I will ever get back there to use the board anyway and even if I do, maybe can use this as leverage for access to some secret spots (LOL). Supposedly he's well connected in the ding repair world so he's gonna get it put back together and it sounds like a part of the board so far forward in the rocker that I won't even notice, really. She said the piece that broke off would just about fit in a large pizza box, so not a devastating middle break...

    I'm planning on going to 3 or 4 Monday events. We should try to get a few guys to go. Already talked to Tim. I can work a half day and get there for noon.

    Re: STIMILON 2017

    haven't been to CTMX in a long, long time, i'd enjoy a ride day there... Mondays might be tough but could try for one.

    if the Stimilon doesn't pan out, we should try for a different group event. sprint enduros are a blast and low key, could be another option other than an MX practice day. (or an MX race day)

    EDIT: or a short course scramble would be fun too

    I've been tossing this idea around for a bit now. Mix together a weekend of dirty bikes, competition, smoked meats, and beers. I'm planning on getting a back hoe in for a weekend too, maybe I can make good on my mini track plans.

    Enduro/Trails skills challenge too?

    Bunch of chairs setup near an open area with coolers full of beer. Watch each other fail miserably at obstacles and various enduro/trials skills exercises.

    I do have a Jersey barrier, an old snow plow blade, and a bunch of boulders. We can come up with something.
