    This drop looked bigger from the top :p


    sideways landings are coo


    Hey TJ! Nipples! ;)



    Orvan's excuse for cutting off my head was when he heard someone ripping down the trail he didn't think it was me :angry: :D

    On our way home yesterday our shuttle companions did not call to schedule a meeting time...so I played shuttle driver.

    If this trail was in SD I would ride there everyday. :)


    Installing Lo-Jack on my bike so TJ does not run off with it ;)


    Hey TJ can you show me how to ride this section?


    Well TYM this is how us racer boys do it....


    if you know tj, he's aggressive in the wrong places..like on pavement and in parking lots :p


    Hey TJ...you are supposed to go over the rocks ;)


    Look ma no hands


    TYM hung in there despite a flat tire :thumb:


    And of course the boring scenery shots of the single track. :D




    It was a great weekend with great friends! Can't wait for another road trip. :)

    I heard you prefer your love notes on the paint rather than glass, I'll be keeping an eye out for that WRB at N*. Shouldn't be hard to find, you never see them around ;)

    What the hell are you talking about?

    seemed bigger than that to me, but I didn't stop to measure. I knew I wouldn't be hitting it.

    Mammoth was fun. I am glad I ran into you guys but you missed a kodak moment involving me clipping a pedal on the compression of the step up at the top of velocity. After this point I clipped the top of the landing with my front wheel in a barrel roll position and rag dolled 20' or so down the transition in front of 5 or so spectators who thought I was dead...It was glorious!
    Definitely some good trails there, I only wish we lived closer.
