I love that double. Flying down the fire road and hitting the double real smooth is such a great feeling. It's been built up a bit more this year, you barely have to try to pop to get the double now.

So.. there's a new trailhead around the end of Duffman. Will we be riding that in the next month?

Too tight is still fun. There's one new section that turns right uphill but there are two tight trees where 800mm bars are a liability. At least for me at this time.

Garbo is so nice right now.

Would be nice if WB invested in some signs we could install on the ground that said,"Why the FUCK are you standing right here?" Some truly awesome shit today.

Golden triangle. Getting rid of the uphill and making it a vastly better and more interesting product for the lower level rider. Should be a fun easy blue for everybody else. It will get rid of the uphill before rejoining dirt merchant.

Nice. looks like they cleared the run in a wee bit. Last time I hit that last season there were breaking bumps and loose baby heads. Made things interesting.

Good job!

Any tips on how you get such a good picture when shooting in high sun?  The shadow and sun wreak havoc on my vids.  Do you manage that with a simple camera setting(s) or do you do it in post-processing?

I know.  I just needed to vent a little.

Traffic and parking probably tough, bike park itself probably not too bad I would think.

Do you use PP or AE?  If so, I don't suppose you'd divulge the effects you use to bring it up to light?

Hmm . Creekside might be the ticket then.
