    Well I drove up to Mt Snow on Sunday to catch the finals of Pro DH only to have it pour most of the day. I hung and watched practice for a while and was lucky to get a bit of filming in.

    Didnt feel like posting a 5 minute crash video of Yardsale so here are some pinners during race day on Sunday....okay and ONE small crash.

    enjoy!!

    Right click and save ---> Yardsale pinnaz

    nice vid - thanks for posting

    they sure make it look easy, like a brown golf cart path. but you know damn well without even having to go there, the name alone and the size of the gallery tell you, this is some tough **** to ride. muchless in the mud.

    how does yardsale compare to the section of trail on BMW @ Diablo that is used for the US Open ?

    Nice video, but they (along with the mud washing out thew view of what rocks are there) make it look easy. Especially compared to the pictures that are posted in the other galleries.

    This video is actually the go-around for yardsale. It was closed after 2 serious injuries. The actual yardsale is rider-left of this line.

    Here's GI Jane (from bikerag) racing expert class on the yardsale the day before, when it was still open and dry. The main line was the deep rut to his right.

    yea for everyone that feels the yardsale is no big deal because theres an option line... welll, thats the option line
    The US Open rock garden is super easy compared to the main yardsale

    Thats not even the option line though... its the NEW line that they make that completly goes around yardsale. The option line starts off the same but it dumps you back into yardsale where this one goes completly around it
