Interesting to see how many riders in the loose fest using ohlins suspension.

Yeah they've really upped their sponsorship budget. Last year they were the title suspension sponsor of rampage with zero riders. Think they learned from fox and suntour that its more important to actually have riders on your stuff. So now theyre grabbing every insigned freerider leading into proving grounds and rampage.

Great news D-man, sorry to hear Obee.
Hopefully nothing serious.

First full day ride on the DH bike was ok but 27.5 tires are slow and the pig is too heavy. I was working way to hard to make shit on jump trails. Changes to build will be done sooner than later. That said she was great in the tech.
Add to that a decision to finish the day on Dag’s DH proved to be an unfortunate choice. Cut down my two day old tire on the rocks. Good thing it was last run and the sealant keep just enough air in so I could ride out. Dems the brakes.

Cheers fellas, just issues with the previous hernia surgery and the mesh causing me some grief.
For real sterling, bummed to not catch up as well. My loss for sure.

OB, here's the plan if it's a hernia issue. I will load you into my miniature car with a forklift. Then, drive you to Vernon with a steady stream of coconut water flowing and a bottomless sack of cheeseburgers in the cupholders.

When we get there I will get help to place you on a folding chair (fairly comfy one) and cover you nightly with a tarp to prevent theft or rain damage to you. Whenever the tarp isn't there I am prepared to keep a fresh bowl packed and lit at most times.

No exertion required. All healing.

Let me know if that works. I can send an Uber for pickup.

This Huss!

And it shall be an Indian leg wrestling challenge to you OB..

Think of it... If BB shows, and you show... theres a chance (albeit slight) I could be a double belt holder. I have no shame in challenging the wounded.

Healing vibes Obee.

Good to see you ShredSkywalker! Hopefully we’ll make it back in Shredtember! Sun is shining and it’s time for me to make some Mystical Money!
