    For this snowy day some dry Ginny downhill stoke :)

    I had good weather on Tuesday when I headed up to Fort Collins. I rode Bobcat Ridge for the first time and recorded my descent down Ginny. It was fun. I have two videos, a short highly edited one with music and the full length feature from top to bottom.

    Enjoy!

    This is the short version (<6 mins with music).

    This is the full uncut descent from top to bottom (18 minutes with no music - just the sound of rubber on dry dirt!)

    Rad! Thanks for sharing. Good to see some speed too. Too many times somebody will post a video of them going slower than my grandmother on the way to church. I'm gonna ride this trail once the snow clears out.

    Thanks for the post. Bobcat is one of my faves. The POV video doesn't do it any justice IMHO.
    Ok, here's the deal. I have a hangover. Who knows what that means?

    As fcrider states the video doesn't do it justice at all.

    If you look closely at my front forks you'll see them using the full 5.5 inches of travel pretty much every few seconds or so. It is a major suspension workout.

    My max speed was 20 mph down the trail. There were a couple of section where the line through was not clear and I had to stop. Guess I will have to ride it again to learn the trail

    710mm but they also have Ergon GS2 grips/barends so that probably narrows things a bit.

    Thanks for the vid. Got me stoked to head back up there. It has been a few months since I have ridden that.
