    I love watching Remy ride, though I'm not sure how he and guys like him survive some of this stuff (esp. the urban dh).

    His 2017 was significantly different than mine:

    But why does that guy keep talking about his spit while I was trying to listen to that nice music?

    This may be the trail that has risen to the top of my "Must Ride" list... Wow!



    I get the feeling that Matt guy has ridden the trail once or twice.
    Please bring along an extra derailleur hanger...
    and pedals...
    and cranks...
    and spokes...
    and rims...
    and chainring

    ^^^Agreed, that just looked ridiculously fun and mostly rideable at about half that speed. Road trips are fun...^^^

    Well there's 10 minutes I'll never get back. What a boring trail! :confused::eek:o_O

    I'm lying, of course.

    Obviously, night riding at that speed and aggro level requires carnal knowledge of planned trail(s) ridden.

    Some people ride really fast on challenging trails. Climb aboard!

    I think I'm in love. This trail looks ridiculously fun. Features look like they can be rolled, dropped or vaulted. Loooooooong trail. Mostly in the Aspens and pines. One of my great friends who used to MtB with me all the time back in the 90s lives in Steamboat - AND DOESN'T RIDE!!!! (facepalm)

    (BTW, top comment: "My mum walked in when I was watching the intro so I switched to porn. Easier to explain")

    Casey is amazing, :inlove: and I have a bit of an unnatural man crush on Vanderham too. :oops: I'm not sure I've seen any women riding the Rampage site before. Go Casey!

    If I wear Dakine Pads, can I ride like them?

    Kind of made my eyes well up when they listed the test pilot. Nanaimo was his home, and where he exited this world much too soon.
