As of a week
and a half ago Kratka was in good to great
shape. Raked from top to bottom, the run was good,
albeit a bit sketchy after the helicopter pad but still very
There is also a great run at Mt. Waterman, Kratka's sister
mountain about four miles down the road (or before
Kratka if you are coming up the two from L.A.). There is a
lift running ($5 a ride, or a day, or something) and
services a small lodge at the top before a fast and dusty
two and a half mile service road downhill. The lift has been
running all Summer for tourists, mountain bikers, and,
best of all, mountain boarders. Hope to see you there, I
doubt you will be disappointed.
In terms of camping, there is a campground
of the Dirtheads will be there!

Pikes Peak BMX Track in Colorado
Springs on September
This race is being spearheaded by the factory hands at
MBS. They've got a slew of sponsors lined up including a
pizza joint that will have food availible at the gig. It
should be fun.
The track has a place in racing
history. It's the spot that
the early races in 1994 were held at. It's a technical
track. You've got to work the whoops and berms to
advance as it's vertical drop is not very much. You've
seen it in all the MBS videos to date.
Entry fees are $10. Registration
is from 9am-1030 and
start time is scheduled for noon. Contact Josh at
719-572-0916 for more information.
I hope all of you can make it out
to Colorado for a
change. We've been travelling to California, the East
Coast, Midwest and beyond for years. It'd be nice to
have you in our backyard for a change.
If you've got a few days we'll
do a tour of the Colorado
"Dirtheads Hawaii Bash"
