    After seeing all of the threads about the Mayhem, I felt it was my duty to start my own. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the race. No I don't have beginner and sport racers. Only experts and a few Pros/Semis.

    Sweet pics.

    I dreamed of all those drops and jumps last night. It was pretty fun. After the race I went back down the course because I wanted to hit the hip one last time. So on the road I decided to boost the single jump for once. During practice and the race I sucked that thing up pretty big. Anyway I boosted way past the water bar and bottomed both the front and rear of the bike. BOOM!

    Hellz Yeah! That thing does hit hard. But damm does it feel good hitting it at Mach 90 and floating around for awhile before the hard landing.

    The best jump besides the hip what the one on the mountain cross course right after the three step-downs. On the inside was that little booter. You could float you all the way down to flat almost. Oh so good...

    I know that kid on the gray vp-free. I rode with him at snowshoe for a few days near monster park time. He can manual forever. He was riding down the road infront of me in a manual for about 250-300 feet. :cool: Hes got good style too.
