    Good job! Vertical Earth Gravity Park

    Spent the day today at Blue Mountain with Mini Crash Hound, Dragon, Softball Gurl and Bear. They've done a great job there and have made major improvements since the last time I was there a few years back. It was great time and I'll definitely be hitting it more often in the future.

    Mini survived a horrendous spill without too much damage it seems - we'll see how he feels tomorrow. Stills for now - video when I get a chance:

    more stillz ... mostly about the scenery











    a few things for the record

    - Mini can take a hit! Holy crap that was a harsh one. His eye-glasses flew about 15' from his impact point. If anyone cares to know, it he forgot to keep his front wheel up and rolled off the drop off the short OCS trail connector between the ski run and the service rd. Thankfully he wasn't trying to do the big rock drop that immediately follows!

    - Riding Sun with sore body after riding and crashing on Sat was totally worth it, and helped recovery some, but crap I'm still pooped and MY shoulder is way sore!

    - Softball Gurl (she'll always be Tigger to me, as much as she bounces over things on an XC ride) can HAUL through the chunk. Must be those magic britches!

    Holy crud it was nice out there this w/e though. I hope it's like that next weekend.

    Looking forward to wincing while watching that crash video.

    Let us know how Mini's doing, mmm-kay?

    Great pictures. I'm the owner of the Sette Vexx in your picture. I thought you guys looked familiar but I couldn't put my finger on where I had seen you before and then this morning I was browsing this forum and low and behold...

    Thanks for the pics Chris and Ted! Had a great time riding with you guys.. Hopefully more next season. How's our Mini doing?

    Looking forward to seeing the video footage.. Will you be posting that on here? I'd like to see who was "showing off for the camera" lol.

    Sweet video! How is Mini? Is his shoulder ok? After watching this video, the crash looked harder than in real life!

    I said this in another venue, but it bears repeating ... ‎3:45 is just HARD to watch, but then Hot Dog Girl kicks in at 4:45 and just styles her way down!

    Thanks for the video work Nank. ;^)

    And how the HECK is Mini? I know he already had a Dr. appt today, hopefully he didn't need anything more from Sun other than ibuprophen!

    I'm sure Mini will be chiming in on his own here sooner or later, so I'll just give a preliminary report and let him fill you guys in on the rest - nothing more than a slightly sprained shoulder. He's putting the few days of recovery time to good use getting his Diabloween costume together.

    And yes, style is an understatement about the way in which Tigger Gurl shreds - 4:45 is my favorite part of the vid. I think we all see who "shows off for the camera".

    heh. that's just the way she rolls man, you should see her on her 29er. :^)

    maybe I can convince them to try Roaring Creek out in Nov if the conditions are right, she and Dragon would like the bumpy stuff.

    Good times! I can't wait to ride it more so we get more familiar with all of the trails. Your shots look great.

    Nice ride report. Looking forward to riding Blue this weekend.

    This picture cracks me up. Makes me think "sad robot."

    Mini is here. Got a call from the Doc today I have a small chip fracture of the right clavical nothing very serious. They are probably finding old injuries from trail riding. I don't feel much more pain than what would come from a nasty bruzzzz infact I don't even have a cool bruise like bears to show off. That pic of bear hugging me is awww not actually a hug just some first aid. I was actually crashed to get Tigger to check it out but she was having nothing to do with that thwarted again. It was a great and I had alot of fun only one more down hill adventure to survive Diabloween!!! Have my costume already or I would have dressed up as Sad Robot. Keep bombing those trails I am definately not going out on a crash.

    Glad you're ok man! That was a nasty spill. Ted is much better with fisrt aid than I am, so you are better off with him "hugging" you.

    Rest up for Diabloween..

    It was a great day. I'm glad I finally gave Blue Mountain a shot. It definitely exceeded my expectations. Can't wait to get back next season.

    I accidentally rolled that drop once too, it really sneaks up on you.

    That is one sweet looking bike. You didn't bash it up when you fell over that log did you?
