Yesterday, September 5th 2009, the first Old World Mountain Bike Championship were held in the woods of Schoorl (near Bergen), Netherlands.

I'll start with the first pictures:

Probably lots of other fellow forum members can upload their pictures and story?
I'll be uploading some more later today....


Cheers,

Marcel

OOH!

Here's Jeroen on his old Specialized:

Extra points for his retro helmet!

Before the start every racer was judged on originality of the bike and outfit.
You could earn extra points with pre '96 pedals, skinwalls, thumbies and rigid was extra too. Extra points for canti's as well.
The one guy with 6 speed even got a special remark with his points (Gee, 6 speed!).

Not competing, probably to nice to get dirty ;), this beautiful Ellison with 3DV Ringle Moby, matching ATAC stem and nice white Turbo saddle:

Bytheway, why did no one bring an old Klein Attitude or Adroit? Did not see any Yeti either....
