    So, I rode my bicycle today.

    My bmxer friend (really good) and I made 2 drops off a retaining wall today. The big one is about 8 feet, I guess.

    The picture with the halfway x-up was the smaller drop!

    thats a sick drop, alot higher than the one on ur website that says "my highest huck" which shows ur improving, or finding bigger drops. how did the landing feel?

    we have snow heere now, about an inch or 2 on the ground, we screwed around in the road though and made a video, ill post it soon.

    Ever progressing...very nice little brother.

    That's a perfect spot to work up to higher and higher drops too. By springtime I wanna see a pic of you droppin the really high section in the middle of the wall. Sweeeet.
    You have bleed with Wallace.....now bleed with me!
