Building the Mini-Whistler

Building the Mini-Whistler

John is building his mini-Whistler in the forest. The trails and stunts now cover several acres around the house. Many of the local riders come to test out the latest and greatest stunts and trails. It has turned out to be a great training area for downhill racers.

John Breazeal takes first place in his division at the Northstar-at-Tahoe Downhill Race

John took first place in his division at the Northstar-at-Tahoe Mountain bike downhill race on Sunday, 1 July, 2007. The course was challenging to say the least. The trail was strewn with rocks and boulders to dodge, jump, or whatever means gets you through. There were numerous crashes resulting in injuries, none major. Despite John's body armor, he took a good hit on the elbow. All riders in his race crashed at least once.

John Breazeal and the gang ready to ride Thunder Mountain. Oh ya, there's some(!!!) snow where the trail should be. The view from Thunder Mountain is incredible. To the north is Lake Tahoe and Yosemite to the south. Straight down is the Kirkwood Ski Resort.
