    That looks fast. That looks really f'ing fast.

    I notice you are from SB. How are the trails down there right now? I was just thinking how it has been nearly two years since I last road Tunnel or Jesusita....sad, I used to be on them at least 3-4 times a week.

    The trails are in decent shape. Rain is sounding pretty good right about now.

    That makes the pic even better. I guess we are the only ones that noticed.

    The shadow is definately the tire. If it was the riders head there would be more shadows in front of it from the handlebars and the tire. Just look where the light is coming from.
