    Nevada freeride stoke

    Just a few shots I took today, one picture of an early gen DHR but that is the blury shot from the side, sorry. These guys would not wait a second for me to get set up, so I got what I could in a hurry.
    The repeated jump with the one hander, and no footer was said to be about 30+ feet across. The last 2 shots, x-ups show the distance pretty well. The landing area is not even in the picture.
    Enjoy.

    There are some big moves at that spot, one of them was in the latest New World Disorder film.
    Good riding out there for sure.

    btw, its a bar turn, not an x up. Can't do an x up w/ a dual crown fork....

    NWD gap jump. Pictured I believe??? I have not seen the film yet, but was told by someone standing there watching it that this is the gap in that film. This same guy said he had measured it at about 42 feet across lip to lip and something like 25 feet down, so figure a good safe landing spot puts you around 46+ feet out....!!!!!
    This is a terrible angle to show you all, but I shot this at 85mm telephoto from a hill top nearby. That is a jeep road as the gap. Does this look like the spot 1soulrider?

    Paul Bas hits that super smooth in NWD8, but he's totally maching into it. Roadgap sounds so daunting.....I prefer to use the term stepdown!

    1Soulrider, you cleaning that section?

    How'd I know you'd be associated with that section?

    Tell me about moto damage on trails. At least we can put some natural blockades in on some of our trails using blowdown sections at entrances/exits.
