    This 1200' climb would be a bugger to clean without any rests even without the 15-18 switchbacks...two or three of which are quite tricky. Finally cleaned the whole thing for the first time ever. It takes quite a bit of endurance, some technical skill, and a fair amount of luck to clean it without stopping and without dabbing.
    Nice work, and I reckon the modern slack head angles makes tight switch backs all the more tricky, even when you've wound down your fork.

    Nice work, but you forgot to mention the bar ends!

    This works if by today you mean last year .





    Forgive me for cheating. I have not had the camera with me lately. The archives will have to do. This is me in Middle Run, DE. In a few weeks I hope to have a new set of videos of the newest features we have added.

    It's actually pretty tough to overshoot because the run in is so small. Ideally I should be riding this on a DJ bike, but I am still getting used to riding a smaller bike haha.

    I am humbled and inspired by the posts of riders doing amazing things. As good as I think I am, I am a novice.

    That being said, I cleared a new feature at White Clay Creek in Delaware. The trail spinners ( a volunteer organization dedicated to maintains the trail system) do a great job in adding new challenges. The feature that starts at 1:50 in the video has been giving me trouble for 3 weeks. I have broken my bash guard twice because I struggle to "get on" the obstacle without bottoming out.

    Great job, blue42. I still can't clear "Bottom Bracket Monster". I got "Derailleur Breaker" in both directions though.

    Derailer breaker lives up to the hype. It is laid out with wide planks, but the only line is pretty skinny. Nice job!

    Mammoth closing weekend a few weeks ago. Finally nutted up and went for the rock waterfall on chainsmoke.



    Not my pic but the very same section of trail. And I didn't do it in the snow either. Photo credit goes to Winston.

    A snake. Last second bunny hop saved him when I realized branches don't have stripes.

    Dumb enough to finally do this one. Probably the most famous drop to flat so I felt I had to do it once.. I Think that's enough.


    Then there is this guy. Better half does't like when I do this one.


    And lasty, there is the fail.
    Were you clipped in? I hope not haha

    This is a joke. from Matt Boser on Vimeo.



    Just started to learn one of the 'big' lines at the local dirt jumps. I am afraid of lips I can't see over and suck at DJs Hope you found this as amusing as I did.

    So the trails in Maryland are so easy you have to go out of your way to build obstacles ?? I grew up in MD and so glad I live west of the Mississippi...

    no offense intended by this post, but the west is where its at dude...

    Patapsco. Not very difficult, but pretty cool to see a loose pile of logs in a semi-natural state

    Im glad you enjoy the west coast. There seems to be a lot of great places to ride (as evidenced by this thread. Im pretty happy to enjoy Patapsco, a top 20 trail system only a few hours from my house (source singletracks.com)

    As they say, the grass is always greener, but I would imagine that someone from Asheville (or Pisgah) NC, East Burke, VT, Fountainhead in Fairfax, might also be happy with their East Coast trails.

    I hope we can agree, Wherever you are at, if you are riding, it is better than if you werent riding.

    Keep the trails in the West looking good, I hope to ride out there someday.

    I did live in Morgantown, WV for one year... loved the mountain biking there.. but then again I am not a fan of technical riding anyway.. It was kind of nice to get a workout and to be able to clear everything...

    I still do quite a bit of chunk here in AZ, but sometimes I would rather kick back and cruise...
