    Cow Patch dirt jumps, this is where the nerves really set in:



    The jumps are dialed!



    and pretty big too!



    Finally fulfilled a childhood dream!



    The jumps are really big, actually.

    My son is excited to get back into bmx. We will hit up Noonday when it reopens. I took them both to Blankets last weekend and now they want to be mountain bikers! They know about the jumps at Big Creek so I will probably take them there soon, too. Seems like this will be a great place for biking!

    Black socks - CHECK
    29er - CHECK
    Tank top - CHECK
    Gloves/helmet/tank color coordination - CHECK
    Freshly shaven everything - CHECK

    1 point deduction for white shoes - soooo 2012 :think:

    I heart Wyatt

    We finally made it out to a lift-assisted park here in So. AZ...first time since snowshoe in summer of 2011. The boy has really stepped up his game. We REALLY miss the gravity scene back east...you guys make such a difference!

    From the pro-section, super steep but hard to tell from the pic








    Holler if you southeast beasts are going to be in So. AZ...I'll show you around the dry and chunky gnar!

    Thought I would share some photos of one of my spots, Cow Patch. itrytofly already posted some, but here's some new ones. Had to compress them, so the quality isn't as good. 085.JPG 100.JPG IMG_9844.JPG IMG_9850.JPG

    My 46 year old one does on her trc. She smiles when she rides though. Maybe yours is its hard to see through all that safety gear and blurring high speed. It's great that you made that cute vid of your wife but its seems the dh bike and neck brace might be a bit overboard. - all my opinion not trying to be a dick but Dat vid needs a smile

    Those where the trails she wanted to film on. Also, we filmed it on a race weekend, so half of the Western Territory was closed or taped with other riders running practice runs.

    Neck Brace, I'll have to disagree with you..... I broke my neck at Snowshoe 2 years ago and was lucky. Granted I wasn't going as slow as she is, but I wasn't going Jay Fesperman speed either. We both wear one ALL the time now. It even bothers me blazing down Green's Lick without one these days (I'll prob start wearing one to be honest). Heck, you can fall off a ladder and break your neck....... speed doesn't break your neck. How fast was the dude on the ladder going?

    the past couple of months i've been traveling a lot all over the country for work. each trip i try and acquire a bicycle to ride in some form or fashion. last week i was in rochester NY for the PGA championship. a bmx friend let me borrow his single speed 29er. he told me there were some "gems" around the greenway. turns out he was referring to single track off shoots from the greenway, i thought he was referring to this awesome wallride spot under a bridge.

    Why would yo make a comment like that then follow it up with "not trying to be a dick". I mean maybe you weren't trying but it was a pretty dick comment to make. Maybe you don't actually have try to be a dick. Condescending humor and all. I mean, not trying to be a dick or anything, just my opinion.

    Stop and say hi next race. It's easy for you guys to remember 3 or 4 photogs names/faces, but it's damn near impossible for me to keep 120 riders names/faces/bikes/kits straight on any given weekend. :( The more I see you, the easier it is to remember.

    Hey old pal, careful who you're assigning that noun to. Title has been taken. That post was so tame. Need me to give you a refresher course on how to spot one? :p

    Speaking of neck braces, any advice on a shop in NC that sells them? I don't know anything about them, but would like to as I've broken several vertebrae across a couple of wrecks. Turns out I'm a poor cyclist...
