Re: Prosecution of Medivac Trail designers/builders

Dear District Attorney Kamena:

This letter is to confirm my comments to the Board of Supervisors at

yesterday's meeting, and to advise you that the film "Superheros" was

submitted to the Board for transmittal to your office as evidence.

The year 2000 film, "Superheros," was sponsored by Wilderness Trail Bikes

(WTB), 187 E. Blithedale Ave., Mill Valley, CA 94941. WTB's owners are

Patrick Seidler (who sits on the Marin County Bikeways Committee), Mark

Slate, Charlie Cunningham, and Steve Potts.

The film features one of WTB's employees and pro downhill racer, Mark Weir,

speeding down steep, narrow trails, with a Marin County Open Space District

sign in the background (also shown at www.wtb.com under "Fun Stuff"). One of

these trails is said to be the Medivac Trail. The Marin scenes are

interspersed among other locales throughout the film. The film features

trespassing and mountain bike stunts on public property, including the State

building, 505 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco. It features a biker urinating on

a car in a parking lot. The film was made by Jay Brunelle and Neil Sanders,

and is distributed by Action Sports Videos (www.justpushplay.com).

Individuals who claim to have first-hand knowledge of who designed, built, or

rides, the Medivac Trail include:

1) "Smitty", employed by Marin Mountain Bikes, 84 Galli Drive, Novato, CA


2) Forrest Arakawa, General Manager, Fly Fishing Review


3) Michael Foley, General Manager, Mountain Bike Review


4) An individual with the email address of mtbnovato@aol.com

5) Orven Zaragoza (orven@rocketmail.com)

I forward this information as a follow up to Supervisor Murray's

correspondence to your office relative to this investigation.

Very truly yours,

Therese F. Alvillar
