Sounds like a good time. I'll have to try and check it out. Are you one of the hosts or did you go? i read the posts and all and everything was pretty cool! What skill levels were there? Some of the posts were from national champions.

Although they were quite a few sponsored riders:

Kyle Ebbett : Scott Bikes
Katrina Strand: Scott Bikes
Cameron McCaul: Trek Bikes
Kathy Pruitt: Jamis Bikes
Olivier G.: Santa Cruz

They were all down there to have fun. We have always stress the "Festival" part and not the race. Tat is what made this so much fun, we showed a part of Jamaica that most Jamaicans don't even get to see much less the tourists. The onlty time it was difficult to keep up with these guys were on the down hills....and they were not even pushing it. The only time they went back to the hotel was to shower and sleep, otherwise it was riding and partying. Check out some of the photos.

Just got an e-mail frm Katrina Strand and she told me that the Whistler BC local newspaper is going to be running an article on the Jamaica Fat Tire Festival. I will post the link as soon as I get it myself.
