    First time trying the third of the set. I've never seen anyone hit it and it is pretty deteriorated, but doable. Underestimated how much pop I would get.

    First is about a 10' gap, no pop so you have to get your speed up. Second launches you so you have to brake between the two. The third..I'll get it next time.

    What is that in the gap? Giant origami? White boulders? Stealth bomber parts?

    It is Sycamore ... so probably trash, broken glass and dog Sh!t. The few times I have ridden there really make me appreciate the relative cleanliness of our OC trails.

    Walked away, only half mile from the car. Cleaned up and sat around waiting for concussion symptoms. Checked out after 30 minutes and finished my ride!
