    LOL, I remember the first time I hit that. I had no idea what was coming until I saw a wall of dirt. There was only one way out and I mashed and yelled and landed it, as well as all other attempts that day.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately) that was Scott and not me. He hit pretty hard and somewhere before I went to try it I lost my man card so I took the table top option to the right.

    Upload the video to Vimeo, YouTube, Photobucket, etc.... and then get the embed code. Then copy and paste it into your post.

    That lip could be about half as high and back 8 feet and then it might be smooth without a built up landing. A high speed step up that basically couldn't be overshot. It has potential but as is.........eh.

    My feelings too. Why make a lip for a 30 foot jump only to have a 6 foot gap. Entry speed to that one really high. Really poorly designed.

    Thanks man! We will indeed. We are hoping to get things really rolling by next spring with Flagstaff Gravity Riders. There is a lot of work to be done but it's very exciting. Can you imagine what can be done if built legit? As soon as the website goes up I'll let everyone know.

    "Sometimes jumping bikes don't mount to a hill of beans, but this is our hill and these are our beans."

    Looks like video 1, he needed to flair it out and transition to the left a little. The jump looks like it takes you straight, where you need to tweak it a little left. His body started leaning that way, but he didn't bring the bike with him.

    I thought the same thing when I went up last month. The potential is ridiculous, some think this could be a bad thing and will resist change but I know we could do something great. It's also the start of creating a REAL bike park at the Bowl. Everything is still in the works and we really don't know what's going to happen but things are looking very positive. Stay tuned and as soon as an FGR site is in place the organization will be needing support. Keep your fingers crossed!
