Pics from this weekends trip

Here's just a couple from this weekend, wish they were better quality, but as I am just learning my camera and I was in a rush, they are what they are. (promise to get better at taking photos soon )

Just thought I'd share with you all since I'm stoked about being able to ride something other than flat ground here in IL

This is from the US Open Course at Mtn. Creek, NJ.

a buddy of mine hitting a small rock jump

my girlfriend riding the same rockface (first time on a mountain!!)


again on more rock


me looking for a new line

Went OTB once, other than that no falls, which means I wasn't riding fast enough!

Sounds like you had a blast! I also agree, girls in armour are HOT!

Regarding crashes, do you guys notice if you ride more cautiously, you fall MORE?

Last Sunday, I rode solo, and it had rained on Sat., so I was taking it pretty easy, too much brake or whatever, I ended up crashing about 4 times. Nothing major, but definately banged and bruised and scraped up pretty good. This past Sun., I was honking the same trails and didn't even bobble!

So, SLC, you were probably riding too slow when you fell!

So does this mean I have to post more pics of my girl in armour for you guys?


Yah, actually when I went OTB I was going way to slow, was shooting down one line and my buddy stopped off the side and that line too me to close to him so I had to attempt and change lines and that didn't work out so well, I ended up landing right on him....

I find that the more speed you carry, the more momentum you have so if you hit an object the said object has less input on your wheel than if you are moving slower. Because as it goes, an object in motion wants to stay in motion! I just need to go faster still!! I wont be happy till I am WC DH champion (haha... tunnel dreams are so fun!)
