    LC and Bender are Petrified

    I just got my pictures back from a trip to Virgin. Bender took me on Flying Monkey to the King Kong line and to start, we hit a little drop called "Petrified". Notice the petrified log under the take off. Landing on the rock slab and into a flat slickrock wash. Bender was trying Chris' Canfield F1 and this was the first thing he hit! Just crazy.

    Damn that's sweet. Doesn't look like there's much room for error on the landing.

    that's sick.
    it's like the log has been waiting millions of years in isolation to be jumped by rawkus bikers.
    looks like chris is still rollin the steel front triangle. that bike is so nice.

    Actually it's a Formula 1 with a custom "Dooky Brown" powder coat and blue stickers.

    Kinda Wierd seeing such a big fossilized tree in the desert.

    god that is seriously ill - I've stood there and looked at that petrified tree a bunch of times - never for a moment considered dropping it - not only is that landing rock pretty short - isn't the wash pretty sandy on the run-out? - Josh has an eye for sick drops, no doubt about it....as King Kong demonstrates so well...

    I don't see how you could hit a drop like that on such a flexy bike.

    okay, for everyone who doesn't know who the guy w/ bender is (redbull has been hinting at it) and the title gives it away, but anyway it's lance canfield (5th place in RBR 2004)

    I ride with Bender quite a bit. We are good friends. He is a good person to keep me pushing myself. I looked at that drop a couple years ago and thought it was too nutty but I decided that if he was willing to get it on a bike he had never ridden, I'd better sack up.

    "man you better get a better camera....nice pics anyway"

    It's my last disposable camera that was sitting in my truck for a long while. I just bought a 6mp FijiFine pics camera. That should do the trick.

    by the way, i've been to that drop in the pic, and it ain't no joke. You gots to pin it or else.
    How do I do more than 1 quote at a time?

    I'm totally into that! The weekend of the 11th would be best for me, racing is starting to cut into my play time!
    Your right, that hit is no messing aroun, stick it or else!

    Cornfeild Sisters Racing

    speaking of camera, just playing around with it and took some pics of my old helmet. The talk about "Cornfeild" in a old thread was started because Troy AKA troylet taged my helmet. Heres the pic.
