30 hectares of Blackcomb burned on Thursday. CBC trees, Fragle Rock, Outer Limits and some other tree runs I can't remember should be interesting this season. I've never ridden in a burned out area yet, but according to my roommate it's awesome.
The whole valley is filled with smoke from the...
I was rocking old Circas, I've invested in a pair of Sam Hill 2s for when I get back riding. I can already walk on my foot without much pain, so I imagine another week and a half I'll be back in A-line and Dirt Merchant, I'll stay out of the double blacks for a few more weeks. Broken toes are...
Just fractured my toe riding Schleyer. No bike park for 6-8 weeks now. It was a small rock drop, both my feet blew off the pedals and I took the brunt of the landing in my balls from the seat. My toe smashed into some rocks and fractured in 3 places. I don't need surgery so that's a bonus.
A couple of bills later and my DH is operational again. Got a Manitou Swinger put in for a very low cost, sending the Fox back to be re-built as a back up. "They" told me this was an expensive sport, I didn't want to believe them.
It was the GLC1 drop. Not huge but I came in super hot. Rode out fine, just had some bad luck with the suspension.
I've taken my dirt jumper in the park a few times. I won't again except to ride the dual slalomn course when it's built.
Just blew my rear suspension in the bike park. It's an older Fox Vanilla that's nitrogen filled so nobody in the village can rebuild it. Getting a new Manitou put in on Thursday.
Thank god I have my dirt jumper.
I'm a sucker and bought a pass for the park. Today to the 22 of May is $40/day, 23 - June 19 is $44/day, then it goes to $51/day.
I could only do 5 laps today (crank it up and A line) and I was exhausted, it was an awesome day though!
