This is my last post here guys, so I'm just going to let you all know that what I said wasn't what I ment, didn't want it to come out the way it did. Hope you all understand.
Cya on the trails.
Not sure yet. I may race DH but I'm in a financial hole right now and it all depends on how much it will cost. I'm mainly going for photos. I'd like to DJ and ride park as well and I'm hoping to race DH but who knows. Lets def meet up for a ride :)

They just happen more often in people in poor health.
Also, both can happen in numerous ways and from numerous causes. These are just general terms used to describe numerous specific problems and simplfy it for the lay person. **
Really :eek: Ok, wow. I never knew that. Thanks for explaining it :)
Sorry to make such a lame post in the start, I feel rather horrible.

I am pretty dam sure that you must be the one on something to make a comment like this, or at least I hope you are on something. You have a lot to learn about when to keep your mouth shut and I hope that one of your buddies kicks the shit out of you.
Completely disrespectful, FUCK YOU **
Yikes. I didn't mean any disrespect, at all. I know hes a great, very great and well respected man and the last thing I want is to insult someone at this time, I am simply curious as to how he pased away, no harm intented. I apologize if I have made a fool of myself, which I have. I wasn't intending anything by my previous post about drugs, like I said, simply curious as to how a healthy 28 year old man passed away like that. I showed a family member the article and they suggested the only thing it could have been was drugs, but knowing the bike industry, I knew that it definitley wasnt. I take the comment back and again want to say sorry. Sorry.
Yikes man. I used to do it without pinching but I could only do it off one jump. I stoped riding for about 5 months and when I was back I tried pinching and could do it off almost anything, pinching is definitly much better, keep working at it it definitley takes time. You've passed the first stage tho, takin the hands off the bars! props dude thats awesome.
Doesn't look like your pinching your seat???
Set a goal with no handers, for example clapping, and once you can do that, you should be able to do it everytime, its ugly to clap though (IMO) so dont clap :P Only use that technique when learning. :)
Not a big deal to wear no helmet on the street / park scene. Never seen anyone land on their heads but its a different story on the mountain. Nice shots derek. I liek the angle from the tree in the first one, maybe rule of thirds or a wider angle lens would add a better effect. I also like the 2nd picture and how your learning to have an eye for artsy, I really like that! Keep up the good work.
You should get on that one freerider19, Theres a lot of kids in west van who ride and would like a real dirt jump park. What ever happened to the jumps under the highway in horshoebay?
If we need a petition to stop houses from expanding up the BP's even higher I can get something going at the cafeteria and student council getting signatures. I'm sure its not a petition that would make the change though. I'm just saying I'd like to help.
