does BDB have an actual team or are you just sportin' their jersey? i was stoked to finally have a shop open in Staunton, living there for that long without one was horrible.
where are you located at?
No, no formal team at this time. There were a few of us sporting jersey's for the shop at the race showing support. James is a great guy and a good buddy of mine. I currently live in Waynesboro.

Hey I have been a member here on Ridemonkey for a while now...but somehow I lost my username and password. I have been riding in the MD area for around 6-7 years now, but I am now living in Boulder, CO for college. Here are some pics of me messing around in town!

-->Sorry, there are a bunch, it should be easier to just check them out on my pinkbike profile. Let me know if this doesn't work.

PS- I will be back in the DC/MD area mid May so I will be looking for some people to ride with!

why do you guys need that jump there for the little wall ride, i mean you can hip it so why the jump?
Short answer: It's more fun! Riding a wall ride with no booter into it isn't as fun in my opinion.

Long answer:
It's not a hip (although I may add a hip out of the top of it), there is a good sized hole at the bottom and a drainage ditch that you have to get over somehow. If there is no jump you basically hit the wall and stop/losing all your speed, not nearly as fun.

Once you are booted up into the berm/wall whatever; it rides more like a berm, and less like a wall. Just a really fun line.... not big but really fun, only about 12-15 feet or so up at the top (where you ride) off the fire road.

If you are ever down near Roanoke,Va hit me up and we'll go give it a spin I'm sure you'll have a good time. The pictures are misleading for sure, gimme a shout and come ride! I guess that's not likely after I looked and saw you are out west. Invitation is open to anyone.

Elevator Shaft; trail has a bit of sustained steepness, it's good stuff and hardly traveled so it's really narrow, almost covered in spots....

sorry for the monotonous pics, I only stopped once on the way down because the steeps are pretty difficult to stop and get off the bike; the pics make it look flat...

It's green out there!

Nice pics, nothing better than spring time in VA. It's been so nice this past week too, couple showers here and there. Temp wise...unbeatable!!!
This weekend should be kick-ass too...bring your point and shoot!!! I'm going to try and post some pics from SS opening weekend, but I may be riding way too much!!!
