    El paso, TX DH&FR

    Im from el paso, texas, border to juarez, mexico. Here we have the rough rider canyon, its pretty big and hard, some times i like to go into juarez mountains and i build 2 trails by my self, they take 2 years, one for race and other for freeride, i want to know DH trails in San Antonio, and other borders(texas-mexico).Post your bike here, i still dont have pictures of mine but it is a Rocky mountain Flatline 3(2008) no boy has one here).Thanks.
    You build it, you change it, freeriding, whatever you want.

    What's up george? I ride freeride and downhill here in El Paso. I ride an Azonic B-52. I have been building trails in El Paso for about four years now. Working on some sweet dirt jumps right now. Send me a line if you want to ride; got a group of guys that goes out every sunday.

    McAllister has an area that drops down from the normal trail to some tabletops and such. There's a pic on our McAllister listing.

    I thini its gonna be difficult to find the trail, ( i mean for the people who doesnt know the road), so we are plaining an aftermeet at chupacabras 100km, beside of chamizal and stadium "benito juarez" i think oit could be too early like 6 or 7 Am, because the race XC race starts at 9 or 10 am, and we have like 2 hours to make the dh race.

    yeah.
    For the people who rides dh and xc is bad.
    Is good because is the same day as the chupacabras , and its gonna be so much spectators in the hill, so thats the idea for tthat day, but we still have time to make any changes, so ill be updating info.

    Yes Rich! You make the dopest vids! Have you ever considered making a full length? With the amount of good footage I've seen from you and your editing skills, there could be a sweet film on the horizon.
