  1. I've asked both the Wasatch and Palmer Divide folks if anyone from those chapters wants to be captain, if not I'll volunteer. But to get the wheels rolling, in the meantime, here's a tentative plan: We'll start from Craig from Bear Valley Inn 755 E Victory Way, Craig, CO 81625 (970) 824-8101 KSU 8am MST Wednesday 7.1.15 I'd like to change up the route a little from the last couple of times, and go through Meeker and Rangely to Vernal for lunch, then follow the 2013 route through Altamont to Park City. 286 mi which is about 22 miles longer than the shortest direct route, but should be much more scenic. In 2013 we did a very similar route but went on a sidetrip that we'll miss this time, so actually a shorter distance than 2013. In Park City we'll be at the Best Western Landmark Inn in Kimball Jct. More info to follow. Reservations at 800-548-8824 or (435) 649-7300. Address is 6560 North Landmark Drive, Park City, UT. Dinner will be walking distance from the hotel at 7pm. details to follow. I'm still working with the hotel for group info, I'll post soon. Like I said, if anybody from UT or CO wants to be the leg cap just let me know, I'll be happy to step aside and support the locals. I'll be with the group coming over from Craig, and may or may not go on to Ely. I do not intend to make any group plans for the Bear Valley Inn, unless I'm mistaken I think that's for the Leg10 Cap to do, and they may decide to stay at another place (but the Bear Valley Inn has been way cool to the VMC, and has been the traditional stop, so...) ichi
  2. Does anyone from Utah or Colorado want to captain this leg?
  3. Dinner Wednesday night July 1 at Ruby Tuesdays in Kimball Jct, walking distance from the Best Western, 6pm or so
  4. FYI, Leg 11 has chosen the Best Western Landmark Inn in Kimball Jct for our stop on Wednesday night, same place as 2013. More info to follow. Reservations at 800-548-8824 or (435) 649-7300. Address is 6560 North Landmark Drive, Park City, UT.

  7. When I first saw the title of this thread I thought you were going to get all emo and have a breakdown, then I thought maybe you meant you had ridden on some dirt and a saddlebag fell off and your bike was broke. :bart Back on topic we rode about 400 and 3800 round trip last two Nationals we attended. It will be a rare year we get to anything E of the Mississippi.
  8. 2013 National Meet Bike Rodeo Slalom Round 3; After 2 rounds the cones are quite close; the first half is pretty funny as the riders try to figure out the deal; the second half has some very good riders demonstrating how to Victory; great crowd support.

Random footage of the entries and crowd at the 2013 VMC National Meet Bike Show; fairly dull stuff but I'm posting it for those who either couldn't make it to Lewiston or those who did make and can't wait to see video of themselves milling around a bunch of cool bikes 1n9Uc3u-_Bk thanks to the organizers and grats to the participants ichi
