I'm a clydesdale and I had a 2000 model P.3 that I built up. The P series from Specialized is HOT! I love em. I might break down and buy a P.1. I rode a guy's around the parking lot and started to MISS my P.3.
This bike is as burly as you can get w/o going to a custom built bike. It will inspire confidence and should handle all you can throw at it.
My suggestion is to upgrade the fork. However, I would spend a bit more and get either the DJ1 or DJ2, but GET THE 20mm THRU AXLE! You won't be sorry, especially if you're going to be doing drops and some jumping! The 20mm will make the front end so stiff, you'll get the confidence you're looking for!
