    Goodmorning America: Mt.Hood/Black Rock!

    My dad just sent this to me and I thought I'd pass it along! Pretty cool stuff.

    Good job! Thanks for the link dude.

    Well right on then... decent local freeride coverage in HD on ABC! It's good they didn't have some tool reporter in spandex on an xc rig firing off slang terms like "gnarly" or "sketchy" while riding skinnies. Not that there is anything wrong with that. It just doesn't portray freeriding in 2009... or ever. Name-brand riders hitting the fun stuff at Blackrock gets a . Is some of that footage from NWD10?

    Good thing they didn't talk about the really good stuff. ;-)

    I'd hate to see my fave trails all crowded and ****.

    True. But what do you expect from daytime television? They're largely talking to stay at home parents and grandparents at that hour (not that there is anything wrong with that). I just think it's funny to hear about trails in my backyard! Oh and look up the television footage about Oakridge online. I believe it was like an oakridge week on a local newstation. Spandex and the whole nine yards. Pretty hilarious.

    I'm just wondering why the hell they took them to Syncline for that sort of riding. There is ONE line there. One. And hardly freeride at that.

    Even the FR 44 stuff, with the odd ramped-up water bar, is more freeride oriented than that.
