Video: Duthie Hill MTB Park at night

Last night my team had our first Friday Night Lights ride. We met up at 7:30 and spun off into the wooded darkness for a couple hours of riding our favourite trails at Duthie Hill MTB Park without the pesky annoyance of daylight to distract us... OK, maybe it's not the most sane thing to do, but good stories often start with bad decisions; and as it turns out we came up with a real whopper to finish things out: Let's hit the freeride line down to the exit trail!
Oh, even better... hit the big step-up jump.

Everyone stayed rubber-side down for this run, and my bud nailed the step-up.

The language is NSFW in a few spots because I swear a lot when I'm amped up.

Looks like fun in a real twisted sort of way.
