Considering the air some people are already getting on this new hip on DM, I can only think of one improvement.

I’m leaving DM and that kind of thing to you guys, I’ve been hanging out in Garbo as much as I can. Have accomplished my goal for this year - get really good at Garbo tech! 

I love love love the OSin/Goats/InDeep line and I’m now able to do them without putting a foot down a few runs back to back. Not doing the worst lines (ie that rock to drop on InDeep or the crazy Remi line on Goats), but I’m getting down the main trail alive and smoothly pretty consistently. The wet will mix things up for me when it gets here!

I’m avoiding the stunts like F2B. I’m too old and getting hurt on InDeep or somewhere like that is acceptable, I’d feel like a moron telling my family I got hurt on a road gap or a table or something like that!

Really loving the park this summer. It’s amazing how many hard miles you can out in there. Maintaining the bikes isn’t a trivial job

For those of us who like to hone our downhill craft whether it be berms, jumps or roots, having the WBP at hand is a boon and a curse.  I can't peel myself away when I can get that sweet vert for free.

One of my favourite lines last year was OSIN (highest line after BV after a few tries) to BV Wall Ride (I learnt today it's a table-able) to In Deep to Fat to one of the 3 expressway options.

This year it's been all senders, but still haven't cleared crab's.  For shame. 

Maybe tomorrow.

BP be with you.

Lets all meet up there for a cruise. I think we need the goading factor brought in to help accomplish some milestones!

I'd love to tick off the whole of crabs. I can get the first two no sweat, but buckle with the fear on the next two. I'd also like to hit up DM as soon as I can so it doesn't loom in my head that the changes might be bigger than what I could handle.

That sounds like a good idea. 

Unfortunately the moon dust claimed me today so my gimped self will be taking it easy for a while...

That moon dust is getting crazy - been on Angry Pirate recently?

I had a spazzy evening shuttling Cypress with Kieran last night - two weirdo bails that are leaving me sore too!

Yes it was - for the non-spazzy amongst us!

I think that I crashed due to my bent rotor and didn't bend the rotor in the crash.  Ive completed an extensive investigation and that is what happened! The bikes fault!
