    You need a combination of skills and balls, a bit more balls than skills but all I see in your pic is a lot of balls..

    Nevertheless its nice, just go and ride

    It's awesome!!

    Unless it sucks.


    See, in this sport, as well as many other aspects of life, the measuring stick needs to come from inside, rather than out.

    The landing is a bit flat but that looks like a nice jump to me, I'd definitely hit it on my hardtail though, for style points and for more height(less weight and no rear suspension to suck up all my boosting energy)

    Good job. Although, usually, anyone can get up the courage to do something that is in their opinion "big, scarey, insane, stupid, hairy, technical..." just as long as you look at it everyday, ride past it and think about it forever. To me, that jump / gap looks pretty big, but I know that if I lived in the field, I would eventually do it...and I'm 13 and a wimp. Take SMT and the Clutch drop ( ). I believe someone mentioned that his house was at the bottom of the hill. Because of that (and everyone bugging him here)...he did it because if he knew that if he ****ed up, he could just roll down to his house.

    You know, the pic shows you in mid air...but you could have crashed on the landing. That pic. looks like it was taken from a video...lets see it. I don't know, I think you're hiding something. I need confirmation. Lier.

    Sounds like you want some "Hey, wow, you're only 14 and you're awesome!" Just ride, and post pictures, don't ask if you're good, and there is no point in posting your age either.

    in my opinion you are all full of sh*t. give him some appreciation for being progressive and trying to compare with others. Whining freaks.
    Haha, I was wondering when he was gonna hit the brakes :D

    no one said he sucked. i think the main point that was made was that you shouldnt ride to be good. becoming a good rider is a side effect of riding a lot and having fun. this is not a gym, you dont have to impress people. if that is the reason people are riding than they are riding for the wrong reasons.

    Agreed. I give him props...he's building stuff to ride and push his limits. Nothing wrong with posting up some pics when you're pumped cause you hit something bigger than you ever have before. Keep riding little brother!!

    Yeah that's better talking. At the beginning, when I started riding, every single fricken time anyone who would laugh at me or whine would make me wanna quit. Now they just stare and keep their mouth shut. And I do not want this to happen to the new generation of promising guys. Cheers

    I'm with you...way too late

    Besides playing the part of Hucky McFlattington, it's a pretty nice jump.

    your right, but i think a 12 year old pinnin a 100 foot gap on a dirtbike that weighs about 5 times more than a mountain bike going about 40 takes more balls than that..
    its sweet and your doing good kid, im just saying dont get cocky

    Only thing I would say, constructively, is that at the point in the air where this was taken, the landing gear should be up. Try to consciously suck the bike up by bending your knees as you leave the jump. This will give you more control in the air and on the landing. And will allow you land jumps to transitions rather then getting bucked forward hard.

    Otherwise you seem to be progressing well young grasshopper.
