How would you?

How'd ya'll like to start a race with a drop like this? I get nervous just picturing my self going down it and the drop on the right looks sick. I wish I could have been there, it would have been great.

DBD. That is one awesome pic. I'm thinking though, that taking the racing thing you do into account, and the previous pics you've posted, that you'd secretly like to do this one Sunday morning, 6am, when noone is looking...

DBD. I just played the QT movie of it. Those take-offs are absolutely amazing. Some of those guys look as if they don't even have body armour. I'd love to have been there. As for the poor sod who fell, I'm amazed he got back up again. Wonder what is bike looked like?

Same applies to New York doesn't it?

I only went there once in April 1988. The traffic frightened me sh1tless and I was a pedestrian! The risks are the same, only the terrain is different.

so very true. i couldnt count the many times i almost hit stupid pedestrians dont look when they fling open doors or cross the street with out looking. i should hit them and make them realize how dumb they are. the amount of stupid people in NYC amazes me how they survive for so long with out getting killed

Look at it this way, if you were rich you stop working spend all your time on your bike and have the skills it would take to ride the extream stuff. And what Dr. bills? All ya need is some gauze, sugical tape, lidocaine and an anti-inflamatory and you are good to go .

I wouldn't do it. We had a tourny here that was pretty extreme and messes some guys up but nothing really compares to the red bull comp.

Awe, thoughts of granger. Go for it. You'll have a blast. If you have never realy got big air before then even a couple of feet off the ground will amaze you. Maybe convert you. Jump into the air my child and experiance the wounders.
