The start of the Interbike Downhill.  At this point all of the manufacturer’s talk about their suspension system goes out the window while you pound the bikes down some of the gnarliest trails around for the ultimate bike test.

We got to check out the bikes closely while waiting for the shuttle. We also hammered the Hammerschmidt on the steep hill below and it passed with flying colors. The Hammerschmidt is a great system and will definately be installed on our bikes.

We thought the new Intense Tracer got the top spot for the best trail bike!

Video of the shuttle truck ride to the top of the Bootleg Canyon dirt road. Some of the trails go down from the top of the road – the double black diamond dh trails are a short, steep hike up the hill from the shuttle drop off point.

Commencal Supreme and Supreme DH are awesome bikes. The Supreme DH is getting great reviews from around the world.

Testing the fantastic D3O Intelligent Molecule silly putty.  The sun at Bootleg Canyon can be harsh and there’s no trees or shade anywhere so we set up a popup shelter and chairs. Randy brought his gas grill too so we also cooked lunch out here!

Jason and Brandon at the Fiesta right next to Boulder City and maybe 15 minutes from the Strip. We all stayed at the Fiesta – check the net for probably the best room deals at the show.
