The shots I've seen of him (and by him) have always impressed me. I know a few riders with some vision problems who can school me big time on the trail; very cool to see, and humbling as well.

Haha! Finally was able to watch the vid. I know what you mean about jumping bikes; I got myself in all kinds of odd, scary stuff at first without a throttle set things right.
