    Glad you guys could laugh that off. What did you hit? Animal, vegetable or mineral?

    Vegetable, I guess. We hadn't inspected this section very well, and the pedal struck a pretty solid little root sticking out of the ground. I just thought this was too funny not to share.

    Yeah - I like it a bunch. I've had it for a few months now. Works pretty good, I've had to use it a few times so far...

    Glad your Ok! That did look like a gnar crash. Glad those trees caught the bike.
    I was shocked to see you crash like that! Must have been the invisible man.
    You were haulin some tail.

    Don't know if that was for Grant or me...

    Jenson's got 'em for $50, I jumped on their last shipment of mediums, the week before Xmas. (Nothing like buying your own presents ) I think all they have is smalls now. With the Remedys coming out, the Maxs are on sale everywhere...but trying to find a medium is a royal beeyotch. If you have some retail hookups, wait on the Remedys, they're susposed to be about a 1/4 pound lighter

    I like the slo-mo version best. I talked to Bob and Lisa today, told 'em I couldn't wear their jersey for anything under six figures, and that I'd be requiring a Thule equipped Enzo for tranportation to and from races. We're in negotiations now, hopefully they'll accept my most recent counter offer (that I'll wear their jersey if they'll let me - minus the salary. And the Enzo...)

    How's the neck today?
    Now with more vitriol!

    Looks like you forgot to ask Santa for Ronco's New and Improved Mad Skillz.

    Good to hear contract negotiations are under way... The neck is only barely sore today, but the right side of my abdomen is exceptionally sore. I'm ready to hit it again as soon as possible, tho!

    Glad you landed that one safely.
    If you want to save your arm strength for hanging on to the bars, I'll hit you in the abdomen. You know, b/c you're a friend and all...

    Looks like one o them crashes where you get up and wonder wtf. I had a couple of them this wkend, but luckily I had snow and 3'+ diameter pines trees to slow me down.

    Great wreck Grant! I like the thumbs up and laugh. That Video of Sasquatch brings back scary memories (it's bad when you know exactly where that is looking at a 5 second video clip). Hope Santa was kind to everybody and their rides. Only 144 days to Angel Fire! Scott

    that's what you get for pedaling so hard with no jumps in sight.

    fantastic footage - glad your OK

    Hey,
    Glad to hear you walked away from that one and can laugh about it. Must be nice to have footage of crashes especially 'humorous' ones to have for posterioity - I AM SO JEALOUS!

    I replayed that from different points in the video machine gun style. It looked like some hungry bush lower section on your left side as you were turning right decided to take a closer look at your nipples, no not them ones the DT ones, and it was pancake flipping time. Nice roll over the bars and the bike did a nice job imitating a buck humping the bushes during rutting season.

    If I watched it any more I would have to make a bowl of popcorn for the whole movie. By the way, where is the rest of the video from the ride?

    Well it will hit near 60 in Colorado today and the sun is out, I have to get ready for a ride. I guess unemployment benefits include some extra ride time.

    CSPRINGS
