Final Ripper -- The Triple Crown

Well tomorrow is the final race (it is not a race, it's a poker challenge) in the Ripper Series put on by NSMBA and Dizzy Cycles.

I have written about these races in previous posts. They are great community events. They bring all sorts of mountain bikers together for a fun filled day. Each of the Ripper's has been different. There was a cross country "esk" one, a Super D, a DH and finally a full on bonkfest.

this weekend's Ripper is the Triple Crown. We will start at Seymour mountain and ride up to a check point and then pick any trail that we want to descend to the next check point on Mt. Fromme. Again we will ride to the top of Fromme to a check point and then down any trail that we want to the Cleveland Dam. From the dam we find our way up to the top of Cypress, check in and then descend to the finale at Dizzy's bike shop at the bottom of Lonsdale.

55 km. ~6500 ft of climbing. It should be a good day.

Here is my proposed route with my partner:
On Seymour, CBC, Corkscrew, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, Bottle Top,

on Fromme,Executioner,

on Cypress, Spine board
