Thrillium Build Day. SW WA… Balls To The Wall

 

If you build it, they will come.

This past Sunday I had the pleasure to hang out about 20 minutes from my house along with a bunch of guys answering their call of the wild. Really it was more like Maximum Radness’s call to arms(read shovels) for some of the gravity bunch to come out for a little trail maintenance. We came, we saw and we kicked its ass. Shovels, pick axes and a chainsaw were the weapons of choice. Berms were rebuilt. Rocks and logs were moved in and out of the way. Brake bumps were filled. Clogged drainage was brought back to life and when all was said and done … brats and beer were had by all. Then we rode. There was even a mini session on Godzilla where money was awarded to the longest jump and best trick. The day was great for it. Thanks to Max and Hi-5 Bikes for all the shwag and to CCMTB for the beer and brats! I’m sure the trail thanks us for it.

Tricks were being thrown.

It wouldn't be a build day without the shovel handle dick jokes. It just wouldn't be the same without them.

Sure a lift would be nice, but then we wouldn't have those 5 minutes to chat on the push up from the gate.

Everyone knows that if you wear suspenders you get to use the chainsaw. It's common sense.
