Times like this I think of what it was like growing up skating. Getting arrested, having ramps torn down, fighting with security guards.........and now there's a sweet concrete park in almost every major city in america.
I just hope I'm not too old to see the day when the same thing happens with dirtjumps on public land.
Sad I never got to see how rad that place was in person.
damn im pissed, i went out there on saturday to check it out with one of my friends and the whole end of the trails were gone, i was so mad, but oh well what can we do. I was lucky enough to view some of the most insane riding i have ever seen go down back at the end of December and i will never forget it.
that sucks, had a chance to ride them once but our coach wouldnt let us for fear we might hurt our selves pre race season-gay. so sorry for the loss guys, but remember for every death there is rebirth of something just as good or better!
To all the locals at Hidden Valley - I'm very sorry to hear about the loss. The place looked like a work of art from the pics.
The fact that the town saw something riders were willing to put their heart and soul into, tear it down and make it even worse if they did it again is sickening. How many tennis, basketball courts or baseball diamonds would be made if ball players didn't already have them?
Best of luck to the riders in that area - I really hope something else will get going for you guys.
