That is a baller pic, but a terrifying vid of the subsequent dirt augering. Super glad it was a D3 that broke and not a T3.

Since you're more or less ok, i have to ask the obligatory question- how's the bike?
Bike seems fine. Bars are slightly tweaked but barely noticeable. Easily rideable but I’ll replace at home. Time to do some jump work and come back next year.

I'm sure there was a more recent "riding" pics thread but I couldn't find it. Anyway, I got these two pics from the Trans BC Enduro in July and pretty stoked with them. Excuse the fashion suicide full-face and goggles, it was a long day....

More spam from that annoying enduro wanker toodles. Just finished the Trans NZ multi-day race. Those kiwis have some ridiculous good scenery on their equally awesome trails.

Fuck directly off mate >:(

Seriously tho, that looks like an insanely fun time. How'd ya do?
Ah mate that sucks. How long off the bike?

I did better than I expected actually. Firmly mid-pack in the 19-39 category and beat my younger riding mates, which I'm happy with given I was the oldest guy in the category and I had a month off the bike in November due to emergency appendectomy.

Next year I'm in the Masters field so keen to go back and aim for a top 10.

this makes me sad to realize that i’d have been in the “masters” category for 6 years...where is the “old-ass hacks” category when you need it???

Hellz yeah my bogan compadre! Thats a fine result in the whipper snapper league, especially given your month off the bike. I'm getting this (fucking) cast off Monday, so I am stoked about being able to self-pleasure with my right hand again...may even get some wine and candles out for the big day.

How far up your arm does that shitty thing go? Over the elbow? Hope it doesn't.

Thankfully its just about halfway down my forearm. Truth be told, I think if I hadda just iced the shit out of it, worn a really good wrist brace for a few weeks, I could've been convinced it was just a bad sprain. Not that it mattered much anyway, as the weather in these here parts has been fantastically shitty, so we've been building trail and doing maintenance - and hell, my dinged wing has left all the hard trail corridor clearing work to @SuboptimusPrime , so my lower back was spared moar morning stiffness :thumb:

Nice! I've got a home trail as well but since I cut it in, it's been unrideable most of the time due to rain and bullshit weather. I cut the damn thing in 1.5 years ago. FML

This happened today while doing a bit of a shakedown before dropping in at the Dos Huecos Enduro track in Tandil:



Hit a rock hidden by bushes with my left pedal while standing up to sprint and went full tomahawk.

Luckily no consequences, apart from an erased ego.
Robust. Glad you’re all good. Looks horrible!

Fat guy on the left, trying to keep it low for the pass.
Good new is I got him - pass in the air FTW.

Bad news is I did not scrub the extra speed so went high in the corner and the fucker got me on the inside. :busted:

I rate blind racing. Mainly because I'm terrible at remembering lines anyway so it levels the field a bit against people that have heaps of time to practice. Of course, certain courses are total death if you tried to race them blind.

adds to the adrenaline factor for sure (there were a few gnar pitches on course). doesn't contribute to quick times, alas. locals certainly have an advantage.

Asking if it's ok to show pictures of oneself riding a downhill bike in the downhill forum? The absolute state of Ridemonkey!
