Not sure if this is considered cross site posting, but it's a pretty sick vid. Some DH trials

Some of you (those who were riding since 1999 at the least) may have had seen some of the clips from various MTB VHS flicks like segments from Fuzzy, Chad and Hoff. It's priceless to see EC getting stuck at one corner on SJT. I feel so fortunate to have witnessed the growth of MTB and feel so pussified knowing I can't do the shit that I used to do.... I love bikes!

^^^ Excellent. The footage right around minute 18 looks like it may have shot at the original BMX site in MTRP.

So, did he get hurt seriously? It looked awful and sounded like he got the wind knocked out of him.

Hope he's ok...

Honda hills - we used to ride there in the mid 80s, but got very popular after 91. there used to be some old, well a lot older to us, afro-american guy back then that was always there on his bmx bike. further in, there was a hill dropping from south to north where we would bomb down. according to our computers, we were hitting over 45mph on hardtails and trek forks. at the base, there was a buried car that people would jump over. we would drop in and out of the creeks all throughout what is now olympic pkwy.
that hill is still there.

Coming up that bastard hill from Lusardi loop up to Black Mt Park there is a Red Tailed Hawk that will follow you most of the way. Pretty cool to see since it's only about 10 Ft over your head. Going at my speed I get to have a real good look at him :oops:
