Sorry no pics. Not much a camera guy. Although you could go on the net and find an endless supply of pics of stuff I have ridden. Any "whistler" pics will have shots of stuff I either rode or crapped my pants on.

A little trail I made through the wilderness, near my house. Nothing that fun, but it's off road

And more, not just tracks but places I ride often, the gap with everyone underneath it and the hip are the ones that aren't on tracks. All the other photos are on local DH tracks.

Also vid some of the nationals DH race held at one of the tracks

Check out the trails in my area with a helmet camera. This is a great site, and this guy should get paid money or something.... My favorite trail on this site (so far) is flightline. The video does not do it justice though, it looks rather boring there, but I am going to be Elfin Forest next week sometime for the first time, and it has a rumored horrible uphill to begin with, but I am up for it

NEWSFLASH:

There a dual crown XC forks available these days that weigh less that single crown forks, and are much more rigid.

The problem with that bike is that it is standing up on its own...hmmmm, I wonder why?

if you look closely at the picture, you'll see it's not being held up by a kickstand... it's being held up by the mud.

This is sure to start a s**t-storm, but I have ran into this a-hole from Colorado(justsomeguy2) who has a really cocky, sh**ty attitude and is "better" than everyone. Him and his buddy do/did frequent an Ohio website making fun our trails and bashing the people on the forum(and we fought back, so were not totally innocent). He will most likely come back at me with a lot of insults and psuedo-intellectual retorts, but I just felt the need to share this bit.

By the way, Ouchie, pink still sucks.

New England's Finest (not!) :











The bike hanging off the bridge is a result of insanely slick wood, and me hopping up to it with the tiniest bit of lateral motion... and well... it was messy.

Seriously, I work in the industry, and have been fortunate enough to have been given a couple of bikes here and there for evaluation.

I tend to replace my Full suspension bikes every year or so, so that's why those seem to change around somewhat.

Yeah, it is Willunga. That berm is so sick, it has a northshore dug in it with chicken wire on it for the best grip you could imagine.

So much confusion.

You have the kickstand answer already.

In answer to your question about the pink:

Pink freaks out the idiots.
