Default My biggest drop to date made the evening news :)


Well, after a newspapershot of our club with seven riders at the event
having only a pic of two of them, 2 of us in the paper for the Terry Fox
run, me running behind the uni (i just bailed from a one footer), things
finally worked out.

I didn't measure it, but it is 4+ feet for sure. (I'll find out for
sure though) It was a little trickier than my last 'biggest drop' as I
had to make sure I cleared the 'steps'

Anyways, we were doing a show at the Children's museum, and this drop
maded the evening news (although this is not the news video, and is
actually a different jump, both looked the same though)

It's nice seeing yourself on TV acheiving a personal best

Nice drop! I did my biggest (pretty much my first actually) drop down
stairs yesterday. It was a sidehop down a steep set of 6...great fun,
but I can't imagine how people could even consider doing 13!

nice one, it takes a bunch of courage to do that very first 'landing on
stairs' drop. a 3" tire adds heaps of courage, mind you.
