    I can guarantee you that you've road plenty of trails that I have either built, maintained and or repaired if you have any skillz at all. The problem with you bunch of pusses is that you cant handle the truth about how yall fcked up a sweet single track.

    The loser you're talking about is the one you see in the mirror slogging on the meat wagon.
    Come on troll. This thread is starting to die. I went nearly an hour without any entertainment. I actually got some work done. Here's some food.

    I was responsible for routing a small section of trail away from a rusty barbed wire fence. It made the trail a little safer but I managed to route it towards some gnar. Is that OK with you?

    Also, I cut out many dozens of punji sticks the original trail masters thought to cut into the cedar branches. Pussification or prudent?

    Steve what? too skeered to post the rest of your name?

    btw, Spicewookie and Mellow Ronnie has already validated my point that the trail was dumb down for the race, money and the safety of the riders..at least they are honest.
    Yawn. You really need to do better than that. I'm fairly certain I can hang with you - not that I'd want to, considering your attitude. You sure you actually dropped those guys you mentioned, or they get tired of your ego and let you go off ahead so they didn't need to deal with you?

    I think they've already given reasons beyond the race, but you've chosen to ignore them. Are you actually racing? If not, why do you care since you're not going to be riding on the course again anyway. It'll get closed down again after the race, and you don't have to worry about bitching about it until next year. Is it really worth this much douchebaggery for riding something ONCE a year?

    fwiw, i am a returning to mtb roadie retread 40+ beer swilling rider and i found the route on private land acceptable. acceptable as in, i can tell this was set up for a race. it seems 1/2 good ol' trail and 1/2 manufactured/artificial. so cry about years gone by and what was; at least its still ridable. try finding the old single track and ranch roads that laced through what is now Belterra - now that is something to cry about...

    I never claimed to be fast because I don't give a crap what losers like you think but you obviously care about my opinion or your mangyena wouldn't be so sore. Now go put your spandexon to parade around your meat wagon buddies and pumped each other up about your shaved quads....it reminds me of the scene from the crazy Czech brothers showing off their bulgezzzz.

    You weak ass metrosexual double track loving shaved legged roady liberals can crawl back to your environmentally approved card board shacks if y'all don't want anymore of this ass whoopin I've laid on y'all. Just quit fcking up the trails or youll get more of the same. Word

    my apologies, i re-read the thread title and i thought we were talking about Flat Creek west of Austin. Where is this 'Flar Creek' that has become a place rife with douchery?

    Hardly an 'ass whoopin' - more like a semi-literate visceral rant, from someone who contributes nothing to maintaining a sustainable trail system.

    You two douchenozzles should show up at R&I sometime and let us know what a bunch of 'tards we all are.

    That includes you, you nauseating little tampon drizzle. Show up at R&I and meet the folks who build and ride the trails, instead of mouthing off online.

    This is what I'll take away from this thread... Next time I have to work on a trail that somebody else f'ed up over the years since I was last there, I will invite all the usual complainers to come see it before I start fixing it. They probably "won't have time" to come. Maybe a GoPro tour will convince them. Or not. The complainers can't be pleased. It's a thankless job we do sometimes.

    So in this case a few guys are given four weeks to make a trail, and it's at a location that has had roads and power lines and other events going on for years since the mountain bikers were there, and after four weeks it's not back to its former glory. Hey, that's not a big surprise. It would have been a surprise if it WAS back to its former condition. Roads cut, power line construction, rain, drought, they all take their toll.

    On a good-sized ranch, there are lots of trails and somebody who is there doing the work has to decide to use some of them and not use others. There is not one loop. If the loop was being laid out for a ride day for Mojos, it would look different than it did for a race where EMS needs to be able to get near all parts of the track.

    If you were at the work day, you could have ridden all the trails either before or after the work was done! That's what I do. When I get complaints over my trails, I totally ignore them if I never see the guy at the work days. Nothing personal, they just don't have any say in the matter. Working trail is hard, as you know. All your buddies are out riding somewhere else and it's the same few people doing the work week in and week out.

    BTW - I have actually done a work day at Flat Creek before a race, but it was probably in 1999 or 2000.

    When I got out to Flar Creek to scout what needed to be done as far as trailwork is concerned on Jan 2nd of this year, I was bummed. I knew at that point in time that there would be no way possible we could hold an event the first weekend in March with the trail in the poor shape that it was.

    I was wrong.

    After the trail work crew removed 61 dead trees that had fallen across the trail, countless dead branches, trimmed back the cedar branches that had encroached from both sides, trimmed back the vegetation that had grown into the trailbed and cleared the bazillion leaves that were hiding the trailbed the trail is alive again. The first race I did there was in 1998 and I attended every year after that until the last one that was held in 2004. I'm really glad to see it alive and well again.

    We didn't have time to work the section near the cave this year. If we are fortunate enough to be invited to come back next year, we'll will get it done.

    It's been a fantastic 2012 thus far for me and most of that due in part to the time spend doing trailwork out at FCCR. I've made new friends like DrippingSpringsSteve, Doctor Brad, DoughBoy and strengthened friendships with others like GrandpaGeorge, GIGANTOR & Spicewookie. Somewhere around a thousand people will be having a blast, pedaling their bicycles out there during this coming weekend. I'm very proud of the hard work this trail team has put into reviving this place and excited to see everyone that comes out there.

    And you should be proud, Tobin. I rode the trail with DrippingSpringsSteve and George the other day, and thought it was awesome. We're fortunate to have skilled trail builders and a forward-looking trail building community right here in the Central Texas area. Good work!

    ahhh, sometimes bikemojo shows glimpses of what it once was back before all the PC whining about politics and non-bike related posts.
