i'm obvlivious to moto stuff - what is a 'scrub'? how do they get so flat / so low (ie, that bubba shot)? do they actually land that? anybody got a vid clip so i can get a grasp of the dynamics?

The "scrub" is when they lean the bikes over on the takeoffs to decrease time in the air. They also don't jump as far so they won't over clear landings when they're going fast.

it's called a bubba scrub and yes they land it. Not that Bubba invented it, but he sure took it to a new level. Damn, he's scrappin his foot peg in that first shot.

Anway, they do it so that they can hit jumps at high speed, stay low(low is fast) and not end up over clearing the shiznit out of it or it's used to hit a single into/out of a corner. The idea is to turn up the face of the jump and get the front wheel to almost roll over the lip sideways (hard to explain). It basically makes the bike soak up the jump and you end up flying flat and straight insead of getting popped up into the air.

it pretty unnessary on a mtb...you can get over the back and suck up lips that way...on a moto you can only soak up as much room as u have between your butt and the seat on a mtb u can get behind the seat, ending in the same result

...O.K. - 2 questions:

1. What the hell kind of single crown fork does Pastrami :D have on his bike? Looks like they completely ditched the idea of stanchions and went with some kind of C-Dale "Head-Shock" on steriods kind of thing...

2. The guy dirt-jumping on a GiXXer - WHY?:(

Nice old skool pic of George Jobe. :heart:

I pretty sure that's that 'infamous jump' at Hawkstone Park (British Grand Prix of 1984).
He was one of the only men to ever manhandle that.

pastranas fork was way different...the one in the pics actually look like it may work...if u dont remember travis tried a barspin backflip in the xgames but the fork ripped off in the air....they fixed it and in nitro circus 3 he pulls one but the fork was garbage and he barley could get it to the jump
