    That's a cool pic, thanks! Dunno bout the screaming part, tho - probly too much brakes in that whole last section...
    And contrary to what everyone else says, I had fun at WP yesterday. Nothing new built yet 'cept for the dj's at the bottom. They moved 'em this year, now there's two big lines, and they are downhill! Plus another really easy set of tables off to the side. But the most fun part of wp is the jumps at the top, the first ladder jump you can pretty much go as fast/ far as you want with a sweet landing. Prices did go up this year to $22, so I hope they're adding more stuff to justify the increase, but still the cheapest for decent lift assisted riding in the front range...

    So what's the word on Keystone? New stuff?

    Heres those pics, and todd should be posting up a little vid soon as well. Had a great time at keystone yesterday. I kept having some kind of flex issue that was making me super nervous, and blew out my rear tire that Stans couldn't fix. Tossed in a tube and upped my tire pressure and the flex seemed to be gone. Didn't have many good runs, but I kept pacing todd and tryed to follw his lines and movements and could deffinetly feel a difference between my first and last runs.

    With out further adoo

    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    Very cool! Did anyone hit the second double? The big one?

    Perhaps the vid will tell....
    I have no idea what I'm talking about...But yeah, that sounds about right.

    I like all the upper trails. They put some jumps on Logger's Way (the blue section of the old DH course) last year and renamed it TNT as a black run. It's fast with a lot of wide open sections and some nice bermed turns. The green (Let It Ride I think) is also a fun trail, but it requires quite a bit more pedaling. It's the best trail on the mountain to work on cornering because you go around about 50 corners (some bermed some flat) on the way down.

    I haven't ridden the lower greens for a few years--they aren't worth hitting when you can hit Wild Thing instead regardless of which upper trail you ride.

    I hit a few of the lower ones on accident yet again when i was trying to get to the bottom. Some parts are a big pedally on my big bike but it was nice singletrack in a beautiful area.

    Kind of funny, after hitting the first double a few times and avoiding the big double, Todd just busted it out on the next run almost on accident! He hit it super smooth, and the first double looks like it sets you up perfectly for the bigger double.

    Oh no it was 100% on purpose i figured if i was going to kill myself mtn biking i might as well do it having fun. And yes the first jump sets you up perfectly for hte next

    That jump is just scarry looking, but it is not hard at all. Actually the "hardest" thing about this section is downsiding the double before the big one. As long as you are smooth on the first couple jumps the third is cake. Big props on hitting it.
