    Friends

    A good friend has your back, always.

    But, what can you say about a friend who will take a hit for you?

    Ohhh man...who am I kidding? Poor MTBBill... never had a chance.

    Thanks MTBBill, for providing me with a nice, soft landing pad!

    Not a scratch.

    The big poof of dust is impressive.
    This could have ended oh so very badly, but was resolved as a very athletic, buns-up roll over.
    Altogether awesome.
    We're all wondering, I'm sure: Was there a re-do?

    No re-do, but there was a successful pre-do

    Haha great one. Glad the camera man was wearing PPE.

    Good to hear there were no serious injuries.

    Trying to get the hell out of there! I have probably taken over a 1,000 pictures of Aqua doing stupid human tricks in the past. I've come to know the sound of his bike coming in as planned. That was not the sound I heard on this occasion and I already started my air raid rollout when evdog got the first shot. Other than a handlebar in the back it was kinda nice getting in a little cuddle action in on the side of the trail. Steve even sprung for the post ride burritos!

    Got it now. I thought originally that he was coming off the big boulder; I didn't realize he was coming off the patch of dirt between the two boulders.
    Anyway, all's well that ends well.

    Haha I love how Aqua is still holding the handlebars in the last shot... like he might still ride out of it. Fun post gents!

    Thanks Jay! I guess all of my years of crashing my brains out... has at least taught me how to come out of some of these antics, intact.

    But, I haven't spent a whole lot of time in the dirt this past year...moreso on the water!

    Shhweet! Pulling off a standing still simultaneous double back flip into a submarine stab.

    I was wondering if you dropped off the planet I haven't heard from you for so long. Thanks for the lake memories I miss that place, and I recognize some of the players in those vids. Is that blue Kawasaki Chris's?

    I'm "chillen" in Colorado in a winter wonderland.
