    I'm too lazy to post the actual pictures but I have a few favorites from last season hiding amongst the otherwise litany of mediocre pics on this website...

    http://hbt.fotopic.net <-- Stuff from SS Mayhem 05 and The Shed's various trails.

    My two faves:
    Brunettes as I shout random racial slurs at him during Mayhem DH...


    Me, because I'm vain, and despite being a micro-huck I was happy for my first time on a DH bike...

    They 'dozed the monster park slopestyle park. The pics don't do it justice to see it in person, and those two ladder hucks were massive in person.

    I haven't heard if they are rebuilding the park this season, but my understanding is that it was an event-only thing to begin with. It wasn't the Boneyard of the East, sadly.

    In that photo, I'm not riding, it is my friend, Dave. Everyone I ride with goes to the left portion of that jump.

    They are covered with snow right now.

    The dude riding this frame built it himself didn't he? I remember seeing a thread about its construction somewhere. Hand-laid carbon fiber over foam core if I recall correctly. VT engineers are top notch.

    Here is Greg(bballboy388) hitting a berm through the bushes. I think this might be one of the coolest pictures I have ever taken.


    Here is Zach(sguhrofst8) with the sequence shot.

    This is the absolute crappiest picture but there is a story behind it.



    About 6 months ago the ground's keepers at a local school cut down a tree and left a stump behind. I found a 2x6 and made a nice jump out of it. You can see that it's not much of a drop but the tranny is maybe 30' long so you can really air it out. I hid the 2x6 in some nearby bushes when I wasn't riding on it and I hit it a few times a week.

    This is the only picture I have of the drop. I went by last night and they had ground the stump down to a nub. No more stump jumping for me. :mad:
