This past week-end myself, Wrong Way Murray, Scott & Dillon Caster, Dave, Don and Danny Jones and a friend named Greg attended the WE-ROCK Championship competetion at Donner Ski Ranch. I had never attended anything like this and I had mixed feelings about even going because this style of wheeling is contrary to my philosophy of how we should preserve and maintain our trails.
Being a hypocrit I must say that it was absolutely out of this world watching these men and woman crawl straight up or down shear rock walls. I witnessed no less than 8 total roll-overs from a distance of no more than 50 ft. It was like having a field pass to the Super Bowl.
Contrary to what I had expected, these Rock Crawlers were not these huge rigs with 44″ inch tires that rip up our trails. They were small rock buggies with everything except a parachute and wings.
I had a lot of fun and totally enjoyed the event. I think there is a time and a place for everything in this big world and my opinion still stands that this type of extreme rig has no place on our fragile trails…………..
Naturally I made a photo show for you to check out if you wish……….
