2010 OCA Spring Downhill Camp
Partial reports below, for the full reports go to the OCA
Report Day 1
So here we are back in Nevada, and as usual the trip out here was an adventure. Who would have thought that Customs wouldn't like a bunch of teenagers flying to Vegas without their parents??? Luckily we had the proper OCA documentation. From Customs I walked up to the baggage drop-off and was asked "how many bikes?" when I said 10 the reply was not reassuring "WHAT? TEN BIKES!" Yes, 10 bikes.
Report Day 2
The day started bright and early as most of the crew woke up around 830 a.m. The morning consisted of bike movies, a good wholesome breakfast and bicycle repair – what could be better? Once we had all our gear packed and the bikes loaded, it was off the mountain.
