B.A.D Boys Set Mountain On Fire

Cam and Roscoe setting out for another attack on the pipeline track. Both boys setting a new fastest time for the track at different stages of the day. with Cam blasting out a very quick 3:06min on his first run of the day and roscoe coming in second at 3:16min due largly to a chain that slipped of about 1/2 way down the hill. The lads all eager for the 2nd run they charged up to the top. when the clock started roscoe headed of first. When again his chain slipped off much to his annoyance. as the seconds ticked away roscoe was forced to make up time in other areas, throwing himself into the corners and hoping his new tyres would grip. When the clocked stopped he recorded a blistering 3min flat. meanwhile Cam was still flying down the hill and Roscoe thinking " have i done enough". With Cam's confidence high he flew past the finsh line. When the clock stopped and dust settle it was Roscoe who maintained his domination of the mountain to beat fast finishing Cam by mere 2sec. A few questions to be answered next week.

Can the boys break the magical 3min mark?

Can the rest of the B.A.D boys step up to the mark?

Stay tuned for the answer's next week.

Team Crimmins off to Coffs Harbour for State Round!

Thomas said if you put wheels on it, he could beat Dunko down the Pipeline..

Team Crimmins will be gearing up as I type to head to the warmer climes of the North Coast of NSW for the next round of the DH State Championships of the World..
With a slight lead from the previous round, Thomas will be hoping for another strong showing, especially with the Bike having paid another expensive visit to the shop this week.
All the family will be going, with Andrew looking to throw thumb tacks under the wheels of Thomas's opposition during their race runs. Andrew is also grateful for a couple of days off school.

All the best up there mate- bring back another batch of points and a big bunch of bananas for us!

Happy travels and good luck!

B.A.D. takes on Issacs!

...(above)Roscoe says with wheels and a fork, his Giant can go even faster...

(above)...not quite as impressive, but Dunko said 'a break is a break'...

Last weekend saw BAD travel to the nation's capital for the first of many DH races for this year. It was a mixed bag for the boys with some of the boys getting more from their weekend than others..

Roscoe: 'It was great to cement my place at the top of the BAD pecking order again. I was distraught when Dunko flew into the lead a couple of weeks on the Pipeline Masters board. I had a relatively incident free weekend unlike the old bastard and felt as though I had the goods come race day. Spiking Dunko's breakfast didn't hurt either...'

Cam:'All I wanted to do was to be faster than Dunko (and Max) down the hill. Roscoe is on another level at the moment, and I'm still not completely comfortable with my new factory frame. I also had the plan to wake evryone up at about 4.15 on Sunday morning with a shit and a shower which broke the boy's sleep pattern up. I was pretty happy the toilet roll holder enabled me to make so much noise.'

Max:'Cam had told me that Dunko could ride a bit, but all I could see through the lense was him picking his bike out of the rocks and trees all weekend after repeated crashes. We're pretty confident he needs 'Crash Test Dummy' on his riding jersey when they come on in... Other than that, I was happy to get away with that noisy shit and shower I had at about 4.45 on Sunday morning when everyone thought it was Cam. I'm still trying to work out how to get the pictures off the camera onto the computer. Bloody technology'.

Dunko:'Iwas shit and rode like a tosser all weekend. Nuff said. Big up to Team Crimmins cheif medical officer (Ian) who helped dry up my tears and get my bike down to the road after my spill. Probably be still up there otherwise...'

Roscoe came 4th in sport(1.58), Dunko 4th (2.27, second last- the other guy was in a wheel chair) in Vets and Cam was 9th in U19's(2.07).
Of our friends from Tura and bredbo, Jack Senior pulled a 1.55, Andrew bombed down for a 2.04 (1st) and rather predictably, Tomas pinned a lucky 1.42(1st).

next up is Stromlo in June. Will Dunko be healed? Can Roscoe go faster? Will Cam need to drop a deuce in the middle of the night? Will Max discover where the film goes in dad's digital camera? Will Sam Hill's team sign Tomas in the meantime?

Stay tuned riders and drivers for the answers to these pressing matters and more! Till next time, remember what Dunko always says- 'go hard or go to hospital'.
