    Things were jumping around here!

    What better way could a Dad spend Sunday than jumping with the groms?


    Guess it must be this way to the jumps.

    After finishing up at the first super secret jump spot we headed to La Casita to fuel up for the next session at the super double secret spot.


    Coming at ya!

    How did Kaba Klaus get in here? He must be a 12yr old in a middle aged man's body!

    I see some old farts riding around on cushy full suspension while the hard core kid rides a bmx (and gets a lot of air). And I think there must be a correlation between age and amount of suspension.



    I think I would take my big FS bike, too.

    I can't say I like the new jumps at the mtb board park. I miss the step up.

    There is an equation in there, or joke, for age of rider versus suspension travel. Everytime Shane would land flat on that bmx MY back would hurt.

    Didn't you see? One spot is secret and the other is double super secret OK in Colorado Springs, and no pumptrack.

    Good place to go to warm up for the big air in the resorts. The jumps are shaped big bike friendly and take quite an amount of speed to make it. Wish I'd have the energy and fast recovery of the two groms. - And their total lack of respect for the huge tables. They were impressive, to say the least.
    "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit." - And I agree.

    Finally a worthwhile post.

    Now to make it relevant;

    What is the best tire for jumping 25ft tabletops?

    Hey Dad, your tongue is hanging out in the sixth pic. You can't see it behind the fullface, but I know it is.

    Dang Shawn, I wish I had joined. Please do keep me in mind for the next session. Nothing like getting owned by a couple 12 year olds... and old men. Ohhhhh... snap!
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Looks like I need to get down there with both the hardtail AND the big bike to see which is better for the application.

    Definitely overkill for a big bike, unless your a sloppy old fart like myself.

    That Kona is Matt's first DH bike! Lovingly resurrected by Nomad Rdr, Can ski --> MSC--> now jumping and hopefully back to the MSC again

    Good to hear! He was oh so close when we got to watch him. Good to hear you'll be getting up for a little lift-assisted fun. Matt rode that bike in 4x/DS as well. Not the best ride for that, but far from the worst Keep up the good work with the boys!
