FONTOILET (pfunks report)

“California sucks!” was the phrase that we seemed to be repeating the most during our short stay in the golden state.

arguably the best thing about this trip happened while we were in traffic still in Oregon, its hard to see but this guy was in a work van sleeveless and sporting a hairy back and upper lip, basically exactly who you would expect to see in a work van right? pretty much except for the large “LION KING” tattoo on his big fat arm, look closely and you can see either an adult Simba or his dead lion father Mufasa. this guy rules. charlie almost killed us maneuvering the “burb” into photo capturing range. I’m proud to say mission accomplished!

The drive to fontana is brutal just plain brutal I-5 is long and boring and you get to drive past not one but two cattle ranches that infiltrate your vehicle with the smell of sun baked cow shit for no less then thirty minutes, and add into this horrible equation three idiots with a broken CD player and tape deck you end up with a sort of country music game of chicken, who ever changed the station first had to sleep on the floor of the hotel room , it lasted for hours and ended in a truce. pretty weak. but once the station drifted into a christian preacher guy and then almost an hour of static then back to the preacher guy we gave up.

The CHAZZ was sporting a pretty dialed “kit” while driving, it was pretty funny and got lots of strange looks from people, one guy actually got pissed off just looking at other then the obvious mental damaged sustained from listening to one of the 15 mariachi music stations and being subjected to each others flatulence for 15 hours our bikes and bodies took some abuse too. Chazz did this during practice and didn’t flat! he also raced on this rim, a bold move indeed.

Phil almost core sampled his thigh with his handle bar, pretty gross.

the side view is way better, you can really see the swelling.

the track was tight and awkward, lots of switchbacks and super loose sandy corners that either preceded or followed a gnarly rocky section.
here is the line of choice for the “up and over rock” you had to drift off the top of this sand covered rock and then monstertruck through some boulders and the biggest braking bumps ever.

you can see Rennie taking this line charlie taking the same line, pinned check out his fork!

more pro pics.

Rennie in the rocks

Cody looked pinned in all his runs but took a costly scary fall off the last rock in the course. bummer.

its only a matter of time before Luke takes over the world.

Riffle was fast as hell all weekend, new tattoos, new hair cut, new bike, and new kit
should be a contender for national champ this year.

Logan is a pinner, and he runs big bars! rad.
THREE seconds faster then Rennie on a 2 minute track, Kovarik is back!
Eric Carter old but still fast
more Rennie

Sam was pinned! part of the all Aussie\ kiwi podium.

Oscar Saiz really really fast, whats the deal with super old guys being super fast.

here is part of Chazz’s race run.
and yet another reason California sucks, nocturnal gas station demon cats.
