On March 22nd Sean Champignon and I set off on a Road Trip to Cleveland Ohio
Our destination Rays Indoor MTB Park.
Although my trip ended me up in the hospital the days riding was by far
one of the coolest riding experiences I have ever had.

This year was the 400th Anniversary of the Exploration of the Hudson River.
In honor of this the 2009 Macy’s fireworks show featured more than 40,000 shells exploding at a rate of more than 1,500 per minute (that’s eight times more high-level fireworks than last year’s show). The fireworks were set off from six barges positioned between 24th and 50th Streets on the Hudson River.
We rode our bikes along the river path in Edgewater to City Place then once the roads were closed hauled down to Weehawken (River road is a great place to ride when there aren’t any cars) We found a great spot to view the fireworks from. The video below captures some of the highlights including the grand Finale. Enjoy
The US Open of Mountain Biking will take place May 22-24 at Diablo Freeride park in Vernon New Jersey.
The Event has grown over the years and they are expecting between 500-600 riders from the US and around the globe.
What attracts so many riders? A well run event, a great course, and the 5,000 cash Prize for 1st place in the Downhill discipline and 2,000 for the GS doesn’t hurt either.
2003 was the first year of the Open. Back then there was a Cross Country discipline (This was dropped from the lineup after the first year) and the the Downhill Purse was $1,000.
The best part of the prizes during that event were the hand carved wooden trophies.
This year promises to be a great event Below is a video interview with pro downhiller George Ryan that came from the Star Ledger

Finally I got around to piecing together some video of Jeff from the 2008 JORBA Mountain Bike Festival that took place at Stephens State Park in New Jersey this past September. Jeff is an icon in the world of professional mountain biking and has built a reputation as one of the best riders in the world. Jeff is the current world record holder for the bunnyhop at 45.5 inches and has won a NORBA National Championship Medal every year since turning Pro in 1993.
