That would be so fun. But I would end up killing myself. I messed up on the 7ft table top earlier today.

Hehehe...I find them intimidating...aline is the most popular trail on earth for number of riders per day/year...I just don't like kicker style jumps haha...one of them is really intense. Most of the jumps are the same size so by the 30th jump you probably have the rythm (if you are a decent jumper) ... but one jump has a tranny that falls away, so what was gonna be a small jump feels like forever...

I like staying on the ground ...

I'm fond of the ground too. I will do drops on downhill trails but I'm just not a fan of the huge jumps.
