    Kenter Ravine Gap...

    is it really that hard? it looks easier than the doubles, but looks really unforgiving... i might hit that before i try the doubles (now that they have been reshaped, they scare me so please give my your thoughts on this...

    depends

    if you hit it off the doubles you don't need to pedal, the first couple times hit it fast (my cousin hits 1,2 then goes around 3,4 pedaling to hit both gaps) there is no penalty for going long on the large or small gap...pretty much a straight runout

    i almost always get in one full revolution of pedaling before hitting it........

    but it is an easy jump, it just looks intimidating because of the ravine.......

    If you're on a hardtail jumper you can easily hit the 4 doubles right in front of it and clean the short side without pedaling. I take the 4 doubles and get in one pedal revolution on my 47 lb. FS bike and clean it no problem. I have yet to try the long side cuz it's a little too far out on the edge of the mountainside for my taste...

    The first time I hit that thing I cheated and skipped the doubles and just pedaled my ass off down the hill. I totally over cleared it and realized it's alot easier than it looks. I like to just flow the doubles before it and give it a pedal before preloading over it. Just make sure you hit the doubles before it smooth and come out of them with some good speed and you should be fine. I've been hitting it on a VP-Free, but it would be alot easier to clear if you're riding something more dirt jump friendly. What ever you do don't panic and hit your brakes, it soooooo much worse than just going for (because you'll make it).

    Going by memory, I'd say the short side jump is about 10 ft. across and the ravine drop under it is about 7-8 ft. On the outer jump it's probably about a 15 ft. gap, with the ravine drop being about 12-15 ft. Note pretty much right there at the outside jump line the ravine just drops out into the nothing-ness of the side of the mountain. I guess when you think about it the jump isn't really that big- it's just the location that gives it the appeal...
