Transcends write up of Champery 2007:
Oh and I made 2 mistakes (at least)
URT stands for Unified Rear Triangle, not Universal Rear Triangle
And the footage of the crash was from Freecaster.tv not Transcend TV
Here it is on YouTube:
Jeff from San Fran gave me these details about riding there. I'm sure he won't mind sharing with the community.
Here's a great local riding map of Marin and the surrouding area. Next time you're around, post up on the Norcal forum of mtbr.com and you won't be disappointed! Most trails are fireroads but there is single track in Tamarancho and China Camp.
Mt Tam has some great riding, though most of it in the way of fireroads. The singletrack on Tam is hiking only but there is great singletrack close by in Camp Tamarancho in Fairfax, close to the fabled 'Repack' downhill. Tamarancho is a mtn bike only trail (fee based, but low priced and worth it) on Boy Scout owned land. There is great riding to be found and most of the folks here are connecting with friends or checking rides on mtbr.com, where there is even an Australian forum!
