Invergarrry pump track race

SORCE bike club held a pump track race today on the Cornercopia pumptrack in Invergarry park. We had a good turn out of kids, teens and adults. Some exciting racing went down on the fast and dry track. I'll make a better write up soon...

Invergarry

The trail gnomes were at it again in Invergarry Park getting things ready for the upcoming SORCE pump track races. Gnomes trimmed the high grass/weeds overgrowing the evergreens in the center of the track. Leaving the invasive Knot weed standing as per requests by the COS (Knot weed stems are injected with herbicide in the fall and provide better control of the plant than cutting). They also did some dirt work on some corners. More photos below

Human helicopter

Some guy with giant legs flew on his cervelo recently
On June 13th, 2013, the AeroVelo's Atlas Human-Powered Helicopter captured the long standing AHS Sikorsky Prize with a flight lasting 64.1 seconds and reaching an altitude of 3.3 metres. The competition was initially opened in 1980, and over the course of the 33 years that followed, dozens of teams from around the world pushed the limits of existing technology in pursuit of this once-thought-to-be impossible goal. This video is a compilation of footage from the record flight, as well as previous test flights. For uncut videos of the record flight visit the AeroVelo YouTube Channel.

Darren Berrecloth | Riding on Hornby Island, British Columbia





NOTE: This video is by those Mindspark guys. Darren was riding (what looked like) a 2014 Specialized Enduro 29er on Hornby Island. The video was pulled/made private minutes after this post. I will make sure to repost this neat edit once re-released. Anyone that can anyone figure out the password for the video wins a free bag of chips.
