    You two suck at this...

    Props to Riding for splicing this together.

    My new job has me flying all over the country every week - so I took a few days and did a whirl-wind trip with -BB- and our spouses. -BB- took these shots, props to him for cathing the action.



    Wake up Friday am and drive to Mammoth, next day drive to Northstar, Next day Downieville and get dropped off at reno, NV airport to go to work... But I had FUN!

    no way that will eliminate SO many pictures, a bmx rider does a trick on a set of stairs by a store, where no riding signs are posted noone complains, a downhiller has a shot clearing a stairset outside a school, noone complains, someone rides in a park where riding is ban.... everyone complains.

    Just a picture of a racer from the SA national round, won by junior racer Will Rischbieth.


    Another race pic, think this is Marshy, local pinner. Up at a private track that I can't remember the name of right now.


    View approaching the bottom of the Eagle Downhill track, the view from the top is pretty decent too.


    Just someone at a race, one of the very few photos where I capture some sort of indication of speed.

    Do you have brain damage? Seriously?

    The reason why you should never post photos of poaching is because it ruins it for everyone. Land access for mtn. bikers is a constant ongoing struggle. When you decide to ride where you are not supposed to it makes all of us look bad. That makes it all the more difficult for legitimate, respectful riders to gain access or to continue to be able to use that area. Posting pics of someone hitting up an urban area is completely unrelated to riding protected land.

    I guess your behavior is to be expected as you clearly demonstrate your unwillingness to think for yourself and evaluate the consequences of your actions. Grow up, do your own damn homework, and pay attention to the rules that will always apply to you.

    no, not really. i know of many people who never ride in places where they aren't supposed to. you're just trying to justify that what you did was ok.

    damn skippy.

    If you don't get it already, trail access issues are a big deal for mountain bikers. Get a clue and take down the photo. Better yet, don't ride in areas that you aren't allowed to ride in, the proof of you riding there is pretty evident and sticks around for some time afterwards.

    shot with my minolta srt-101 and kodak ultra color 400 speed film. had to estimate the manual focus, set the shutter speed to 1/30, used whatever aperture that worked with the light meter, and then panned and hoped for the best.

    got a picture cd instead of prints when i got the film developed at cvs. i'm guessing they just used a negative scanner or something.

    Overcompensated for having the back wheel off the rock in the middle image... little luck, a little rear brake, and that ground being super loose saved me.

    Shaved junk the RM way... :poster_oops:
