G'day

I need to get out more, but doing this? No bloody way ... see the gaps they jump?

I'm old enough to think that it's great when I get some air - that stuff is pretty amazing.
The 'made' tracks get pretty elaborate. One of my mates has just got back (well, a couple of weeks ago) from Canada. He's already looking for a job in Vancouver. :wink:

They play the DVD of the first one there in my LBS on a big screen sometimes.

The downhill crash I hadn't seen but it's scary, frame just snaps. Probably worse because it's a Y frame so there is only one bar connecting the front to back.

OUCH! :shock:

I'm shocked that his helmet came off :? I suppose the bike and helmet just wasn't designed to go 170km/h or take such an impact.

I'll take the chicken line on those doubles thanks.

The skinnies and steeps look like heaven.
