    Nice work on that skinny at 1:56. That bugger is exactly as skinny as it looks on the vid - really quite very.

    Thanks for putting up all the great stoke too!

    Those trails are all about balance and commitment at lower speeds. They're some of the most technically difficult you'll find, with 3" skinnies thrown in for kicks. There are a few faster spots and airs to be sure but the main trail lines themselves are plenty challenging (and rewarding).

    The video makes it look way, way easier than truth.

    thax! I heard the song and thought it fit the mood of the trail.

    @blkss. Yah not much jumping on that trail. It's funny how "old school" that trail is when I think about it. I used to ride that thing on a hardtail with 2" of travel and U-brakes. Everything was super-slow, you would do trackstands, crawl along logs and roots, tock back and forth, pedal stroke and pedal-kick wheely drops. It's hard to believe but we were doing that thing super - fast compared to how it used to be.

    you can't go too fast as there's so much stuff going on - big roots, airs to flats - skinny after skinny after skinny. I could go faster but that would mean bypassing all the challenge. Instead i rode and fell off a lot of them. Not really dialed for the skinnies that day for some reason

    There's a lot faster trails; I'll be on the shuttle bike tonight and try to get some footage. Even our fast trails aren/t very fast though./

    whew that was long;
