Ron and Eddy: Yeah, it's a pretty amazing spot. It's another bike path... It's a lot faster than the pictures make it look, around 25 mph. Pretty busy by day but doable in the evenings, particularly on weekends where it gets deserted after dinner. Pavement is super good.

Very cool looking spot!

But, who gets to bungee-jump Conehead when the plastic goes flying off the side? ;-)

No guaranties the way things have been going lately. Will you accept Canadian Tire money for the entry?

Have a great time if we don't see you.

But not matter what happens, we're getting on the plane to North Carolina.

Claude get your ass here too! Canadian Tire money is accepted! ;)

You can leave Ottawa sunday afternoon, and be back monday afternoon. It's a quicky! If you come alone or with MB we'll find a place for you to sleep, like the Vermont guys.

Salut Mig,

Unfortunately, with August always being one of my slowest months business-wise, and Eric unable to attend and thus split gas money with me, I can't make it. :-(

This really sucks but thatz the reality of it...especially if I want to go to Antrim and Statesville.

Je regrette...

when you pass pierre laporte bridge, take the exit blvd champlain, the spot is just in front of the cote gilmour.

par le pont pierre laporte, prend la sotie boulvard champlain et continu jusqu'a la cote gilmour, la cote est a ta guauche et le spot a ta droite.
j'espere que tu pourra venir

Truly an amazing night! By far the best outlaw we've had in the province! Awesome spot, super cool night racing, and everybody gave a hand and insisted to help out. I'm really proud to be part of such a cool slalom scene...

Congrats to everybody! We are all winners in such an event! Thanks a lot to Claude, MB, Dan, et Gabe for their presence. They left for Ottawa at midnight right after the awards for a 5 hour drive. Hardcore skate family! And thanks to Raylene who took the bus from Montreal!

A Group
1 Rockin' Rookie 37,054
2 Louis Ricard 37,120
3 Claude Regnier 38,337

Great to see Louis with the sling off the arm! He looked so bummed at the Farm.

What a spot?

Post by Claude Regnier » Wed Sep 05, 2007 4:11 pm

I lust wanted to say thanks for a great evening of racing. Mig and crew thanks for everything. Michel thanks for everything else.

Rookie and Louis we're simply ripping it up. Boy the Canadian alent is rising and there were several newbies out for this little race at an historical site in North American history. Talk about Battle by the Bay.

We got back home about 5am and Monday was a TV day once I woke up, LOL.

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
Many Happy Pumps!

Why did it take me 5 months and several thousand $ to get over a busted shoulder and it takes Louis "the rockstar" 5 weeks!? :-)

Looks like you guys had a great time - killer spot!

Here's a cool vid of the race by Boris Firquet:

To make you even more jealous Noah: It was Louis second time breaking the same collarbone while skating in less than a year... ;) :) Plus health care is free up here... ;)

His first time back on a board was at the Top Challenge slalom race a couple of weeks ago and he got 3rd place. The kid has some potential, to say the least... :D
