I ended up sitting out my race on Sunday, so I grabbed my trusty Digital Rebel and hiked into the woods. Let's see some others. I know you HS guys are out there, lurking in the shadows while all the MX guys hog the glory. Tight woods This hill was fairly challenging. It caused a HUGE traffic jam right after the start. There was a nasty little rock ledge/kicker sticking out near the top. The pics don't do justice to its steepness. This poor guy had good form... ... but didn't stick the landing. And the guy behind him didn't do much better. And here's the defending champion, demonstrating why he has the #1 plate. He made that hill look like a speed bump.
