Don't click.

I warned you.


A few pics from the trails this morning:

Drainage and tarp the loose dirt is the start of a hip that will lead into a berm attached to the next lip:


First set up jump in my line:


Another view of the setup jump:


From the lip of the mainlines setup speed jump thing:


The result of no brakes and bailing. Bike came back down and hit his back, tire buzzzz:


Trails look like ****, dust and sand now, it needs to rain.

Got a few clips and put them all into one youtube edit. It's not really edited at all though, just clip after clip, no music. I was too lazy and the footage was too crappy to do a real one:

I'm in the green, white bike as you know.
Spit yo game talk yo ****!

Here's another video for your pleasure!

Wait till the end, the king of smooth breaks his Wombolts. Looks like they aren't that good if someone that smooth can bend them like that.

Nice. Looks like fun. Maybe you should 180 and come back down the last takeoff instead of grabbing your brakes? Or would that tear it up...

Normally i would, and people do, but it was hella dry yesterday and i didn't want stuff to crumble. Fortunatley it rained last night so i can dig and finish that 4th one.

I was hitting it yesterday after my camera died but it's pretty sketch and bumpy haha.

I don't think they look big at all. I think the gap on the third is 11 feet. They are probly 4-5 tall-ish. But i doubt it.
Either way they are fun.

It hasn't been worked on since Halloween when we had the jam that was terrible. It's rough but rideable. The main reason is because the third's lander was falling apart ahaa.

I'm glad it rained.

In the pictures the jumps look tiny. Like 2 ft tall tiny, but in the video I can see that they acctually arent that bad.

This thing is ridiculous. Like i would take a picture of it, but it would do no justice.

Just wait till it's done the video clips will be crazy. It will look like we just bunnyhoped 12 feet.

I can bunnyhop 12 feet in distance easy. 12 feet isnt that far. And yes 1.5 feet is a tiny jump.

Yeah his line is going to be crazy. I can't wait to ride it.

Maybe Friday since it rained i'll work on my line a bit instead of our mainline (which is the one in the video) and i'll put up some pictures. I'm hoping to finish my 3rd lip and start the 3rd lander which will be a hip that is attatched to a berm...

We'll see.
