This trail is hairy those who have ridden or tried know. This is the trail that although many Pro have heard about not a whole lot have really ridden! Those wondering about Lancaster still aroung here racing motorcycles 7th in Baja 1000 I think, he showed up and BTW. His record still stands from around the 2001 season with a time of 1:54 todays winner had a 1:56 and that was Dann Baggs! Will have a report on it later today! Leland was fesh out of surgery BTW.

Hey Ian, sweet pictures and thanks for coming out! The turn out was great and it was a blast having some spectators out there!
Kyle's last name is Wideman btw. He was tearin' it up with no derailluer and no chain. He had some impressive starts balancing with no chain while clipped in and trying to rock forward to drop in on the face section.
Did you get any stills of me, wearing a white T-shirt and riding a black Dhr?

That trail looks like it will kick your ass. fun stuff.
Yeah it def kicks your ass. I hadn't ridden it too much before this week but started to practice it a lot before the race. I got a concussion from it on Monday and my riding buddy, Owen, snapped his wrist completely in two on his first practice run this morning before the race. It's too bad cause he was tearin' it up but at least we have a new shuttle driver! :lighten:
Fun trail though, most fun I've had in a while and now I'm going to ride it regularly.

Yea please cut the name short..., and edit your post?
THANKS man
ok, just deleted it. not sure why you guys are so worried about me posting the name of that trail though........ it's not like i gave the exact location.

i wish i would have rode that trail when i lived in slo. and i never rode the trail named after a large metal object, heard that one was fun too.

Yea the large metal object is a good one, not nearly as "gnar" as the one pictured.

i heard the metal object trail was recently made illegal to ride, which is why i never made the hike.

is that true?
Yeah they supposedly put a sign up on it. Not sure that is really followed considering the whole back half of that range is private property!
THANKS btw about names. Dont need squids getting coptered out ya know!

great shots Ian.. that was some hefty camera equipment :)

seeing Baggs tear over the WC line, and through the last rockgarden is something i will not soon forget. He rides on a whole different level of crazy.

You really CAN'T appreciate how insane this trail is until you see the features in person. The pictures don't do it justice. It made me ill just thinking about riding a bike down it.
