Some pics and vids from our ride this weekend!

We decided to hit the trails this weekend for some mountain biking.... we deffinitely had a great time. If you want to see all the pictures and videos just go to this page: www.dirtpassion.com/santos.html and check out all the links and videos. Make sure to check out the dirt jump videos for some nasty crash action. You can watch a face plant into one of the dirt jumps.. impressive ****. Here's a teaser pic for you.. there's plenty more on the website. I know the site is rudamentary at best right now... but it's getting better

Santos is a great trail network. OMBA does a great job of trail work and maintenance. I haven't been there in awhile, with Santos being 2.5 hours away, and work...etc. Have they finished the camping area? Is everyone still parking on "The Other Side"?

Nope, no camping yet.. but the new parking lot and facilities are very nice. They've been building some great new stuff around there. There's a Freeride competition on March 9th that's going to be awesome.. I'll be there for sure!

Yeah, actually he was fine... not hurt whatsoever, but he toasted his fork. The dirt he landed in was pretty soft.
