Trail pics

First time I have been riding since the holidays started. Kinda been lazy, I had ridden an XC HT before hand and the DH bike felt like a pig when I got on the bike. Lucky the track is so flowy, you can pedal hard and hit most of the corners flat out, only one section you are forced to brake.

Oh well here are the pics

Mate right hander berm which puts you out over a bump you pump and straight into a left hander berm.



Me in the folloming left hander.





This left hander then puts you straight into another right hand berm which lines you up for a jump over a pipe.



Over the pipe.



Further down the track a wallride/berm, you ride up the valley wall to get avoid a tree, the section which forces you to slow down.



A jump in the middle of a corner, I try to lean it in the air so I land with the bike already leaning, makes takign the following corners much faster and easier.





Final major jump
