    blowin' off steam again

    Feel free to ignore this post but i'v gotta blow off some frustration. I met up w/ the bmxer's that ditched me when my tire broke. They said they were goin to some jumps i didn't know about, so i followed. We got there and since all the jumps in the area are small for bmxer's i was used to those. The biggest jump i hyad been off was 2 1/2 feet, well these were 5-6. I went over one just to get a feel for it, and when i was trying to learn the jump not even tryin' to clear it yet they nagged me about how mtbs suck. These guys can't seem to grasp the consept that mtb's take drops, downhill, and jump (in most cases) with more stability. These were just big bmx jumps and made bigger so my shocks absorbed the lift. Even so without really even bunny hopping i managed to almost clear it. It just ticks me off to have no one in the chesterfield area that gets DH/freeride. Everyone here does BMX. (i'm going to hit the jumps tommorrow and i'm not leaving till i make it.)

    Dairy, I grew up in Chesterfield (Manchester High School). I used to skate with some bmxers, all those spots are long gone now I guess. Hang in there, check out the urban scene down around VCU/MCV. You'll find some fellow MTBers if you look. All my friends moved from there, otherwise I'd tell you to hook up with them. Just keep doing your thing, it'll all work out
