Beerwolves, cows, gorillas and tutus… oh my! S’Ender Bash 2013 coincided with a full moon and the combination of lunar mania, PBR, and adrenaline proved the perfect recipe for getting our freak on.
Sunny skies, dry dirt and warm temps made for an ideal closing day. Pulling over trailside one could hear the hoots and hollers of riders milking the season down to the last chair. Trail crew got things going up at their shack and pinned it downhill from Klunkerville at dark on their fleet of rigid bikes outfitted with the latest in swoop bars and skinny tires.
For the third year standing the band tore the roof off delivering their best performance to date. Exacerbated by the driving punk-rock-a-billy-celtic-swing of the Cop Outs, folks got wild quick. As things ramped up the dance floor turned into a human demolition derby. The deep end of the mosh pit looked more like a rodeo than a dance floor… and then the boogie board came out.
Another year of history. See y’all in the spring!
