Old Skool: 2000 24 Hour Solo World Championships

In October 2000, Bike Magazine detailed the 24 Hours of Adrenalin Series' 24 Hour World Solo Championships in Canmore, Alberta. You might recognize someone mentioned in the article!

Check out the photo below. SMT's very own Chris Scott fielded a solid second place the the 2000 Solo Worlds event. Nice work dude!

The snow is starting to melt more and more here in Harrisonburg, and reading through magazines and other articles like this one has us getting pumped up for all the tours, events, and races coming up this season.

A great description of one rider's experience during the early days of the Shenandoah Mountain 100!

In 1999 Ride Magazine published this article describing the writer's experience during the Shenandoah Mountain 100. Here we are now, it is 2010 and we here at SMT are starting to gear up for this year's event.

I hope reading this article got you stoked for the 2010 SM100, I know I am!

SVBC Superbowl Ride turned into the Superbackcountry Ski - HUGE day on Shenandoah Mountain!

We got the total hook up today
A serendipitous meeting with Jeremy and the Shenandoah 4 Wheelers
They towed us up the mountain on our skis
We would have been hard pressed to do the loop with out their assistance
Sorry that Joel and Trevor missed the ride
I will have to post a picture show of the day
Super tight
Marty Quinn dazzled us with this effortless powder turns
Nick Waite was taking the "Pro" lines too
Looped it from Flagpole to Meadow Knob
Two bonus laps from Pond Knob towards Oak Knob
and back up for the Pond drop in
Ended up dropping off the nose for the drainage towards "Red Diamond"
Came out right around the waterfall
We hit the road just as the trucks were coming down
perfect timing!!
Insane day!
Totally wrecked!
