    After watching Danny injure his shoulder at Fontana on a nothing 2' drop, I cringe at the thought of him or ANYONE doing a maneuver that is 100% death if something goes slightly wrong. The transfer from one bridge railing to another 20' above a raging creek was sufficient. Riding the rail of a 500' drop is just not OK.

    Otherwise, the video was phenomenal.

    I love both these guys, and can listen to Danny's brogue all day, but their styles are too different for me. I'd rather watch one of Danny's choreographed masterpieces, and then listen to another of Claudio whoop and holler down a course. Together, just doesn't jive for me.
    YMMV

    Much of that looks like Santi Oaks - but if it's all at Oaks, then I need a tour guide to show me the goods. Great looking trails I've never seen.

    It is Oaks. Oaks is all about the short and sweet.

    Isn't there a law in Colorado that your bike must be worth more than your rusted out Subaru on which it is conveyed?:Roflmao

    Yes, as long as it is a Yeti. Both Subaru and Yeti are required in Colorado. You must apply for a variance otherwise, and go through the "State image commission."

    Seems there have been many variances granted in Eagle and Pitkin Counties for Range Rovers, Porsches and Maseratis, but the Yeti portion of the law is more strict.

    Soooooo good. :thumbsup: That scream and launch - looked like she went about 50% higher and farther than she expected. :eek:

    I was once told I ride like a girl. I responded, "I wish!"

    Didn't have time to watch it all yet. First trail "Rupert" looks fun and challenging. Second trail "entrails" is a "nope" right off the bat with the skinnies to log ride right next to the pond! I would be in the pond in a heartbeat. The rest of that trail looked really challenging as well. Can't wait to view the rest.

    Oh and @Mikie , it's Squamish British Columbia - halfway between Vancouver and Whistler. About 45 mins north of Van.
