    Me trying to go fast on a bike. VID

    I've been slow all year. I did dome crashing last year and this spring and it messed with my confidence. The last time I rode with raisingarizona he was shaking his head at how slow I was. I'm trying to fix that and get my speed back. I strapped my old go pro to my trail bike hoping I would ride faster for the camera. I think I'm getting faster, it also helps that I'm on some pretty easy trails in the vid. I went to Angel fire this weekend and felt pretty good.

    Sorry for the bad quality.

    Nice ride! If that is slow- then I need to speed up. And that is the second vid of Angelfire I have seen in a week- I will be going there next season for sure!

    BTW- who did that song? Sounded like a Eagles of Death Metal/Queens/Fu Manchu sound- liked it!

    Thanks! This is actually parts of secret and schultz in flagstaff. I took this the day before I left for angelfire. I should have some video, in stunning HD, from that trip in a few days. The band is Death from above 1979.

    Didn't think that looked like the trails I rode in Angel Fire a little over a week ago.
    We have to get a huge crew of AZ peeps out there for next year's freeride festival. Free beer, schwag, and fun.
    Now I DRIVE the short bus!!


    Help increase ShortBus' rep

    Count me in! I wanted to go to this years fest but I couldn't get off work. I had a great time up there this weekend. I lost part of my chain guide on pepper spray, ignored the "slow" sign on the wood drop on supreme dh and dropped to flat/crash, downsided zero jumps on candy land (except the step-up but you can't really mess that up, oh and the boner drop too!) regained my confidence, and made friends with a pack of wild Texans! I had way more than $22 of fun every day. Thanks for the fun times and the blisters on my hands AF!

    Nice, I love secret and the upper moto stuff. I need to try it clockwise one of these days.
    Bender to AZDog: I'm not the best person to give advice on not riding!
