Whats your favorite winter trick!

Mine is powersliding its the best.

I love going liek 30mph and on smooth hardpacked roads with liek 1 cm of misty snow and stand on my pedals and not even touching the brakes. Then i'll whip my body to force my bike side ways and ill power slide or slide side ways for about 30ft.... just liek rally cars. My rear end is liek completely sideways while my front tire is directing the bike at 45 degrees to the rear then smoothly come outtta the slide and pedal straight as hard as possible so when coming outta the slide you shoot forward real fast kicking up a cloud of snow behind you.

If it was winter i would make a video of this.....

I do the same thing all the time is summer when i fine a sandy road.

Power sliding is what im known for by my friends its such a rush

Cool, TravisJPed. I would like to see that slide! You must have really good balance.
