River at the bottom of the valley, nice to see through the water. This is not the Hudson...

The trip was a blast, and the fest was great. Everything they say about the Kingdom trails is true. Super sweet flowy fast goodness. No rocks, that's weird - but easy to get used to. The trip up is definitely worth the hours in the car if anyone is contemplating going. We rode on average 5/6 hours a day. Tried a lot of demo bikes and hit Burke Mtn on Sunday. Fun as hell.

Big props to Marc at Prestige MTB. He hooked us up with a bunch of sweet bikes for demo. The zumbi's were great. They ride really nice and the customization options are sweet. Also checked out his Knolly Warden, that bike is no slouch either. ;) I nabbed a ride on a Pivot Mach6 as well... Ripping machine. Also tried an xprezo ad hoc, impressed with its ability to fly.

Can't really say much more other than everything was awesome. Great weather, good food, great company, fun atmosphere, super sweet trails, and overall an excellent time. I didn't want to come home ;)

Sweet picks BA and great way to tell the story of our trip. Definitely would go back.

Ibis Ripley and Niner Rip 9 RDO my two favorite bikes that weekend. Would love to see how they do on the rocky stuff at Blue. Hopefully another demo will come our way.
