FR's have historically run every other year, to allow everyone(especially those coming from overseas) time to recoup and plan.

I completely understand.
But shouldn't everyone be circling 2011 on their calendars now?

every 2 years is good though we gotta make sure we're all in the same camp. pretty much everyone who was at moab said that being split between 2 camps wasn't as good.

as for circling calenders the only thing set in is the year so feel free to circle 2011.

I'd cast my vote for oregon. closer, and spreads the spotlight around to another dealer or two.

+1 on the 1 camp idea.

I hope we can similar support from husaberg in the future, but the bar was set pretty high this year. I really liked the opportunity to demo the new bikes. Hopefully lots of non-bergers got to demo them as well, and talk with longtime berg-owners to help their decision making process.

There's a place here in Tennessee that could be used with one camp site. It's called Cumberland Mountain. It's between Huntsville, Alabama and Winchester, Tennesse. It's on top of the Cumberland Plateau. Two 20 mile loops, one 30 mile loop and a 40 mile loop on 17,000 acres. I know that doesn't sound like much compared to western standards but 30 miles in the tight trees is a lot. Can you western guys ride in the trees?

clay,
rode for a bit here in vegas with a guy from the south , bba from hickhucksters [great guy & rider], who actually rides a mountain bikes 30+ ft in the tree back there.
not to paint y'all as that red-lime-eyed southern extremist, but how close are these trees?
loved the singles in the birches at fr3, missed the cheers around the fire though , so this one site is a big plus imho.
which sounds better fr4.5, fr5, or fr1south?
great to meet the husaberg team and enjoy the support [sponsorship, demos, etc.].thanks.

I've read about it and ridden with a guy here that has gone. He raved about it. A couple years ago, we had a get-together in WV. While it didn't have the numbers of a FR, it was a blast.

30 miles in the trees is an eternity at my speed. They've sent rescue teams out after me on our 6 mile loop that we have here.
