    Well, they came to visit me all the way back from Hungary. Anyway, my cousin, he's 23, races XC and also does freeride. I got loads of presents from him: A pair of Specialized socks (they're amazing, the only socks EVER that I didn't get sweaty in after a 5 hour ride), a Specialized water bottle, a tin of Gatorade powder (energy drink), some chocolate and last but certainly not least: 6 DVDs : Kranked 3,4,5 , New World Disorder 3 and 4 along with Crankworks. I've watched Kranked 4 and the New World Disorders and I must say the riding in them is amazing, some stuff they do is simply crazy (I mean, who would attempt a road gap over Tour de France?!).

    Just wanted to share and to say if any of you get the chance to buy or rent Kranked 4 or New World Disorder 3,4 then DO SO!

    PS: We've gone riding 3 times so far, here are some pics and stuff.
    Pretty hilarious, after I took him through 4 of my favourite trails he said:
    "Before we left I even thought of unscrewing your helmet's chinguard [I lent it to him for the ride]. Now, I wish I'd have brought my shinguards and other gear."

    Pictures of two of the rides:

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...sikpek2030.jpg --- Misi, again, on the Fireman Trail, different obstacle.
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...sikpek2008.jpg --- Me flying down a rooty part of the "Hobo Trail" (funny names, eh?). The roots are right after a fast section so it's a really fun part.
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...sikpek2006.jpg --- Misi and me, posing for a photo with autotimer thingy function from his camera. (quick brake in climbing up, that's why seats are high)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...isikpek111.jpg --- I find this photo awesome, see for yourself.
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...isikpek108.jpg --- Me down the rooty part again, different day.

    It was kind of unfortunate he didn't land it, because then it just looked like he was a dumbass who thought he was good and tried to disturb things but if he'd have landed it then it really would have impressed everyone.

    I'd never let my friends borrow my bike. Nothing personal I'd just go nuts thinking of where it was.

    bruiser2: Yeah, neither me... maybe nor him, except he lent it to us providing we fixed his brakes (constant shinshinshinshinshin sound) and adjusted his derailleur. I told him my cousin was a much more experienced rider and in the end he lent it to us. Afterwards my cousin bought him some tasty chocolates.
    harov3: Thanks. Yeah, they really are great.
