Highbridge Hustle and Flow Team Relay Race
Date: Saturday, April 26th, 8 am
Location: Highbridge Park at the corner of Harlem River Drive and Dyckman
Presented by NYCMTB. Sponsored by Diablo Freeride Park (and more to come)
The Highbridge Hustle and Flow race is where lycra and body armor meet!
Imagine a team-relay race that pairs the baddest XC/'Cross/Road climbers with the quickest young pump trackers and the sickest DH pinners and Super-D trail bombers. Set them out, time-trial-style against the clock in an all-out sprint race through the woods of Upper Manhattan. The XC'er climbs through snaking singletrack, the youth hauls through the pump track, the DH'er blasts back down a berm- and drop-infested freeride trail, an XC/'Cross/Road rider sprints up an absurdly steep paved path at full bore, then the Super-D'er rips back down a technical XC trail that makes grown men cry. Tough? Yes. Fast? You bet. Fun? Of course. It's the first-ever Highbridge Hustle & Flow!
30 teams of 5 riders will test their mettle on the Highbridge Park trails for their chance to sit in the hot seat and claim victory in a race unlike any in the Northeast. For those of extraordinary skill and fitness who think they can hack it all, a limited number of solo entries are also available (please contact Jamie Bogner to arrange for solo entry). Great prizes from sponsors await, but this race isn't about medals or trinkets, it's about guts, glory… and survival.

In the spirit of not letting friends ride junk, here's a look at my hardtail project. Im just waiting on a few parts to complete the build. It should a be a fun summer.
Spring is just around the corner and its that time when to start build those for the upcoming season if you havent already. If you haven't or know of someone who has, just yourself and the people you ride with…
btw, Open Road hasnt been open in years, but this is one of those classic bumper sticker for you old schoolers out there.
After a week long trying to figure what the hell was going. I just figured out the forum software I was using out dated and need to be move into a newer database. Anyway, I managed to move everything into the forum, so go back and start your internet bashing!
