    Need new thread for the holes...and is there a gnome thread somewhere? Those could even be combined in the same thread. Since gnomes generally live in those holes.

    And that would be the best case scenario.

    Yup, a reminder that it is basic 1st aid to leave the object in place until medical help arrives. Twigs, sticks, bike parts, whatever.
    If an artery is severed or the damage is severe, the injured person could bleed out before assistance arrives or you may cause more severe damage by trying to remove the object.

    Cool stuff,
    I remember riding the portal trail with my 2 riding buddies back in 2003. We started up poison spider mesa and rode to portal and back down. I 2 of us did it on hardtails. I did it with v-brakes and a 100mm judy. One friend did it with v brakes and 80 mm sid. And the crazy part is the best rider among us did it on rigid steel Giant with Canti brakes!

    Of course it was dry at the time and we did walks some spots. Given the exposure we all took it a bit easy, but in the end we survived. One of the most memorable rides of my life.

    I think I threw up a little when I saw how close you guys were to that open face cliff especially at 1.02 when the bidoer looked like he was stalling on that cliff face!

    COol pics MTB_pilot. I rode the Arizona preserves a few weeks ago. I rented a felt from a lbs that was a POS, and I only had 1 water bottle, but it was cool. Your pics really capture the challenges out there. Fun riding for sure.

    slimat99, I had to watch it again. Portal always brings up good memories. Always started at Negro Bill's and proceeded to Gold Bar and Golden Spike with the ever challenging finish down Portal. Nice run... I have not been since 2004 and I have never hit it with disc brakes. I know where I want to be this spring... thanks.

    glad you're stoked to ride Moab again! My first time on Portal was 04 too. Check out Mag7 next time you are there. Great way to do the Portal now.

    I hope this qualifies... I cleared this up to the point of the double timber step-up, which is much further than I have made it before. It may be a while before I get the double-timber obstacle, as I am pegging my heart rate before getting to it right now.
