Dirt Fest 2013

19 May

This weekend a crew of us drove out to Dirt Rag’s Dirt Fest at Raystown Lake kind of by Altoona, PA. It’s more or less a long weekend of camping, riding MTBs, and beer. It definitely didn’t disappoint and was a blast. On top of that bicycle manufacturers brought fleets of top of the line bikes (mostly full carbon) for people to demo as well as a few wheel manufactures for you to demo their wheels. This was perfect for us as the lady wanted to try MTBing before actually buying one. She might be hooked.

The trail system out there is super flowy and fast with a good amount of elevation (think White Clay, DE but with more climbing and much faster). I had a good time cruising around with old/new friends, hanging with the ladies trying to get their confidence up, and ripping WAAAY past my comfort level with Harlan and the Industry Nine crew. I havnt had that much fun in quite a while. Dirt Fest will definitely be on the agenda for next year!

My buddy over heard this convo: “Is that Topher over there in the Bikesport kit with that Hulk Hogan Handlebar mustache?? Did he shave – I thought he had a crazy mountain beard…” It made my weekend.

This bike was ridiculous/ Instead of handle bars it had ropes, the saddle was a horse, and the hubs on the wheels were offset so it bucked you like a bronco. I dont think anyone could ride it for more than a couple yards.

T-Rex was the hit of campsite #61.  Everybody loved him!
