I made a quick edit showing the main features of Bookwus on Fromme. Let me know what you guys think.

Enjoy!

Awesome. And entertaining. And I wish I could ride Bookwus — especially those skinnies that plunge down the backside of the big logs.
Keep keeping it real :)

Bookwus is definitely a classic trail and has a number of sections that have gotten harder over the years. Even in the complete dry is can kick your butt.

Fun vid with nice riding, keep them coming.

Give it time, you will progress. There is also a lot of loam on Bookwus to land on if you fail. Keep riding and you will see that features that had challenged you one day will be second nature on another day. All riders have passed through similar challenges as they have progressed.

Thanks for watching bud.

No Endure-bro ("Lets get outta here!"), plus Eric B and Rakim is always a bonus :)

Great vid. Fun trail.

Thanks a lot for your support. Yes, I'm gonna do my best to put out a video every 2 weeks even if it means having to quit my job! Haha.

Are you talking the line right at the 2:45 mark, where he is doing a slow, tight left hand corner into the roll. Originally the line climbed up and around, then came in from riders right. That section last I looked had become a deep channel. Then it went over the roots to riders right @ 2:45.

Or do you mean at 2:38 (line to right of tree) I noticed that as well. The original line has become very difficult. I walked that the last time down, don't think the ride-around was carved in as yet.

BW is a great tech trail, that thankfully has not changed all that much over the years.

Maybe Chaz will start paying you for the advertising. There's your "job."

Exactly, its tough to line up but doable. Classic slow tech move. The trails in great shape! Hope it doesn't change!
