    Horseman weekend ride shots

    So it was just me and the jump boys today, finally looks like summer
    has arrived and it was sweat sweat sweat, so jumping and nailing some
    terrain that hadn't been conquered was the order of the day.


    We bumped into all sorts today so there some no Turner pics of
    others going hard, the best though were about 3 groms 2 on Kona
    Stinkys new models just hucking everything all of about 14yrs old and
    one poor grom on a hard tail going as hard as his bros and sticking the
    landing was inspiring to watch
    Enjoy


    1 Riding the Freeridden trail TA on the attack



    2 Momentus on the freeriden trail rear view going hard



    3 Momentus in the thick of the cabbage patch



    4 TA in the cabbage



    5 View from the top of the cabbage



    6 Side view of the cabbage drop



    7 Momentus scaling the cabbage drop, its allot steeper than the photos



    8 Grom jumping without the RFX, was easier on the bike



    9 Some groms going big on the travis angle jumps



    10 More groms, these young dudes were nailing it



    11 Young gun going hard on a tricky obstacle drop which he ripped



    12 This is how its done a local hot shot styling it on the end jump



    Hope to get some more good action shots 2morrow yeahaaa go big or go home

    Ta out
    Ps RFX is rocking, I love this bike it just gets better

    Cheers CC yeah where having fun, Ive messed around with my fork and stuffed up the settings to the point I was having some serious noises on big hits which held me back and was a little freaky but I finally got it sorted today cheers Ryan.

    I set a ramp up on my deck for a run in and gave the 66 the spike test off the deck getting some serious air not 2-3ft hehe and shes all good whew now I can stop ***** footing around and get serious

    Thanks for posting, great pics; you guys are having waaay too much fun-especially with all that nice weather
    Cheers T yeah lots of fun the weathers come good the sweat and dehydration has been hard to get used to so quick, and the trails are pretty dry now so a good sand tyre up front is a must if ya want to keep ya line, leaving the ramp sideways unexpectedly is not ideal

    Thanx DH the cabbage has taken a few collarbones shoulders and wrists its pretty scetchy but like all jumps hit with confidence and all is good, when ya coming off the first drop and ya can't se the drop on the second one the stomach tightens a little just stay loose and smile is my technique course a 66 helps 2

    GeeeeeZE TA! you guys have your own private bike park or something?
    Awsome man! Keep it coming!!
    Hay BZ cheers will do, yeah basically, though its not just ours, I wish, then we could keep the corner cutters and trail wreckers outta there and also save the jumps that don't bite if ya capable but riders keep biting the dust and then the PC white coats come out and make a perfectly good jump into a ride over arghh
    If people hurt themselves why don't they take resonsibility
    Sorry ranting now yeah its a good place has its moments as I said its getting pretty sandy and dry now so scetchy comes allot and good sand tyres for corners.

    There are lots of other good places around here 2 which are bigger so will start to seek those out, the sandpit does have allot here to play on so its a good place to get used to the RFX and dial it in and is very accessible the no1 spot in ride numbers for sure cause theres something here for everyone, the jumps have plenty of bypasses, ya can get comfortable here pretty quick once youve sussed out the terrain.

    BZ you inspired me to get some Ti itis for the CCDB 2 I need a 600lb spring so its on its way yay

    Yesterday I caught a glimse of 2 Nicolai TRF gboxs out the back of FR in Kumeu bery nice they have them setup pretty booty, lots of Riverhead mud on them so ya can tell where they ride, nice

    Look foward to it.

    Im all keen for a double summer dude won't need any cajouling Momentus 50/50 maybe Mudgy not sure I think he want to stay with his XC roots and going to Canuk means one thing

    Anyway we should make some plans when ya back
