I put some pics of the Nationals in my photobucket. These guys are A Pros. They were taken on some HP digital camera so they're not great.

Eh, he's pretty good, but i've seen better. I've seen him get beat by other people. That guy in the MCS gear is amazing. He's turning AA soon so he'll be racing guys like Bubba Harris and Randy Stumpfhauser.

Looks like it would be exciting to watch. The haze and out of focus shots are kind of distracting, but the timing and comp are pretty good.

what is the point of manualing during a race? I thought the idea was to go fast.

Manualing through a rhytem section or over a jump IS one of the fastest ways to get through it.

Ah, I figured pedaling would be the fastest way.

One wheel is faster than two. Manualing is a lot faster than rolling or pumping.

Yeah, like I said, they were taken with a regular digital camera, nothing special. But I thought the timing and stuff was good.

In racing it's called a pedal-manual, but yeah, it's a wheelie.

Then go to a track for a practice night. Cheap and you don't have to be member. Or get a membership and race. It could help you with trails.
