Here are some pictures:

The crew at Downieville (I'm the one rocking the Guinness shirt):


The bridge before the first climb at Downieville


Here is me hitting that high speed double right before 3 amigos/manure pile at Northstar:


Here is me doing the banked ladder for the first time at Northstar:


Here is me hitting the jump/drop right before the ramp park at Northstar (landing halfway down that hill is fun):

Nice pics. That ladder looks fun.. I'd probably be too chicken to hit anything else pictured. ;)

the ladder is probably the easiest out of everything, except the shot of them sitting on their bikes, that looks pretty straight forward.

I think I saw you and your red upper link from the lift, but never ran into you on the ground...next time. Oh and cool pics.

But yeah it's weird, every one of those ladder stunts has a pretty sketchy entrance. None of them are that hard but just getting on them seems, I dunno, just weird. But that's true of a lot of stuff at Northstar, they just don't seem to get it.

OH MAN!! Those are some freaky pics, that really looks horrible. Like you just had a little ankle flesh holding your foot on! :eek:

Curious though, how did you colorize your vp-free links? Got any better pics of the frame?

I actually have a buddy who is a powder coater over at Santa Cruz. The bike is 1 of 2 bikes ever done by Santa Cruz like that with trans blue and trans red. Oh, the bash gaurd is also done trans blue too. =]

This is the only other images I have of the frame right now. Unfortunately when I broke up with the girlfriend I lost access to her nice digi cam.

yeah, im amazed that with the amount of mountain that they have at northstar,
that their trails, ramps and jumps are so under constructed...I have a better ride on the trails here at UCSC...even with the shuttle runs...
