5-0 info

dakota 5-0 write-up...finally...mostly pics. computer and laziness have put this off so here goes. one hell of a good time. lots of pbr. 7th ss. not sure overall. 4 hours 25 minutes-ish. going back next year hands freaking down. rode the middle 30 miles with kent and felt like we were just out on vacation somewhere. cliff jumping. rushmore. black hills. chophouse. free micro brews. coolest awards party i've been to. drank a beer at the bacon station 38 miles in. no cramps. felt great. awesome trails. limited pavement/gravel. favorite mtb race of the year. pics couldn't be in anymore random of an order. yes, scotty broke my mirror running into road construction thing on the way out doing like 80 mph. jabber rode great again. probably run a squishy fork next year.

where'd you do the cliff diving? we loved s.d. 13 years ago and can't wait to take the kids next year.

2 or 3 miles from rushmore on the same highway. there's just a wayside place to pull off and the cliff is right there. just hop the guard rail, climb, jump, repeat.
