    DH in Hawaii

    Few shots from this weekend's race at Camp Timberline on Oahu. I had a blast. I'm riding a Trek Session 88.



    Road gap.



    Road gap video still.





    30 ft. Double.



    Video still of the double.



    Tire buzzing my shorts causing a waredrobe malfunction. Lucky I had surf shorts underneath.

    Yeah, there's a lot of good riding in the islands but this is one of the few "legal" ones where races can actually be held.

    The top half of this trail is really tight, steep, and technical. Looks like I'm going slow because I am, haha.

    clipped a few trees on my practice and race runs, it was over before it started
    i think about a 28 is wide enough for control yet narrow enough to clear it compared to my 30's
