DANGIT. Posting riding pics and good ones at that. Didn't you know the rule was only how to bunny hop

Which one is the jump to flat, if you're talking about the last group of pics there are actually two downramps, one whic is about 4m from the jumpa and the big down slope about 7m from the jump. In my race I landed between them to flat from about 2.5m in the air... it was fun.

Also where is the bunny hop thing?

The wood jump looks like to flat

the bunny hope thing is a joke. Time of year for "which trek is best" and "how do you bunny hope threads"...was doing some e-sarc

Also the road gap NS launcher (the ne you thought was to flat) was really good, after the race we took out some f the race tape so we could get a 50m run up to it and launch it, it turned out to be abot 3-4m down if we hit it hard enough. During my race run I hit it and did an ET, that got hell cheers, didn't stop pedaling before during or after it.

Also in the last picture I have, I'm a bit annoyed, I took it too early. He whipped his back wheel out past his front and then got it back, stupid National Trials Champ and SA#1 DHer
