was gonna cal it the SEVEN MILE GANG BANG but didnt want to put people off so i called it the SEVEN MILE GROUP ACTION.
the format was team race where each member of each team had to rideone of four courses and find the letters hidden thorugh the courses. then the teams had to get togther anf figure out the anagram. easy.
T-MAN, TIM CECI, GINA AND JT HUCK won the "race".
this week the race only cost $2 (procedes going to QMTBC) but riders had to bring 2 beers. one to drink themselves and the secong goes into the prize fund.
i like drinking races. well races with drinking involved.
we had some visiting pros attend. emmeline ragot and joe barnes.
pinners pinned it, people rode it and everyone drank. perfect.
races will be every wednesday starting in 09.

had first day back to work at Vertigo Bikes/Gravity Action. We got our first heli bike trip of the season done. was expecting lots of snow but there was way less than the same time last year.
anyway, heres a quick photo of my commute to work.
Yeah baby, needed new flavour for the new spring season on the old dirt jumper.
Couldnt decide between matt black and neon pink so i went with totally neekid.
Took a bit a work to get the frame stripped but was worth it.
I think this thing looks like sex.

Went on a little day trip to Wanakashizzleshire at the weekend. Rode Lismore. damn the council, they went and cut all the trees down. the trees were the best things about that place. it was like riding real trails, zipping through the woods on a speed bike with no wind and no kids running all over the landings just as you come into land. Now its a shit show. blowy as fook, and theres kids everywhere. apparently the said cutting down the trees help with visuals as your riding but now that the place is so open theres kids everywhere and you need spotters all the way down the outside line just so you can get a full run. crazy.
afterwards rode Sticky with Mad as a haggis Matt. havent ridden there for ages but it was so cool. quick laps just pinning the tight trees as a group. fun ride.
anyway, no photos. was too busy packing two bikes and two sets of gear into Fozs death wagon to remember the camera. next time...

Last week i came so close to realising a dream. Well not necessarily a dream, rather a nightmare.
It was a casual thursday night like most thursday nights at home watching Celebrity Hells Kitchen with Marco-Pierre Scary-eyes and i had decided to turn in to bed early, but couldn't sleep because of some temporary insanity brought on ingesting the psychedelic pubic hair of a wizard warlock. I got outta bed to go make a cuppa tea or something and as I stepped into my kitchen all i saw was flashing orange lights on the other side of the curtains. Strange i thought, the bin men have already picked up the rubbish. So i went outside to explore and i was greeted by 4 foot high flames on my doorstep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Holy fuck!!!!! I managed to get that little puppy smothered before the whole house went up but damn, it didn't half give me a fright.
Didn't sleep the rest of the night because a very powerful mix of self prescribed insane paranoia and genuine near death fear-relief.
The photo above is not of anything of significance relating to that night. instead it is a bit of toilet graffiti that i came across in a dive bar in Vancouver Island couple of years ago. So eloquent don't you think?
