More non-sense on a MTB
« on: June 04, 2014, 03:56:41 PM »

Never get tired of watching pro's kill it.  He is taking some massive hits and incredible speed.  The opening scene where he doubles a berm is just nuts.

Wait for the end, just wait for it.

Yikes!  Agree with Ric - would be terrified, but fun to watch others tearin' it up!  The song in the video was quite apropos; made me feel like a wimp...  :P

All of that is rideable and fun for us mere mortals, just not at those speeds or altitude.  You want to feel really bad about yourself, check out this little ripper.

A) Most of that would terrified me
B) Shame on him for riding a "yellow" trail ;)
C) Awesome

I have ridden there in the driving rain a couple of times. Unless there is lightning that shuts down the lifts, the trails are "green".

Coming from a MX background that looks fun for me! Then reality kicks in and reminds me that I just started on a MTB and need to learn control before I attempt that. Someday tho! 8)

That's what's great about going to a bike park.  Have a sloppy good time and not have a guilty conscience.  Some of the most fun I've had on a bike was bombing down the mountain barely able to see and stop.  Plus I think it hurts slightly less when you do go down. :)
