Santos Vortex Today...
« on: August 26, 2007, 05:53:25 PM »
Wow, what a blast! 
I want to thank Gregg and Mike for taking me along with them today...  We did the Vortex Loop - I loved it!

Gregg served as lead and just killed on the climbs.  He pulled off some things that I hope to be able to do soon - talk about No Fear!  Watching his lines is really helping me learn.  Mike did good too, only failing the one time his chain slipped..  but not his fault!  I did fairly well for my first time, I think.  I made most of the smaller hills, but the rocks and more techinical stuff had me walking a lot.  I need to work on my timing and lines.  I did have a ton of Fun!

Thanks again Gregg and Mike!  See you guys Tuesday!

Congrats Sharky. That is a fun loop, don't tell Garry but I sneaked his bike onto that loop. That is a good trail. J.B is another good one.

Whoa Nelli!  Busted!   hahaha...No prob.

I've had my hardtail in the Vortex before, and the GT has seen the place a few times.  I think I like the F/S in there better though.
