2000 Giant XTC NRS 1 Mountain Biking at Killington

This was my first bike that cost over 2 grand. It was also my first bike that had to be sent back for another warranty bike. It was also my fastest mountain bike that got me down to 185 lbs. and into racing. It was unbelievably fast, but it also rattled apart, since at full speed, it didn't like to rattle over rocks roots and debris. 24 pound bike but its suspension was too snappy for New England crud.

Here we are skittering down the fireroad at Killington...No pads, just mountain biking.

Trails have not changed much... Here's some more circa 2001 helmet cam...
Ya might recognize some of it.
