Sometimes getting up a climb on a mountain bike can be an exciting challenge. This particular little climb in Sedona has been done by more than a few people I'm sure, but it takes a bit of work and some skills. At least 4 people in our group tried it multiple times, and it claimed several tires with pinch flats. Ride at it as fast as you can, drop a couple of gears and hop up the first ledge, then the second, then try to pedal to the top. A few came close but Eric was the only one that made it...

Sequence Saturday 33 - InFocusmtb's sequence of Andy Tillman in the Kamloops Bike Ranch. This was a hard one to pick but the winner is munro3 who put a lot of work into this comment:

Experimental physicist, Nicola Pescetto, discovers new subatomic particle while observing super-motion and anti-symmetry in the Large Cycling Accelerator (LCA) located in Kamloops, BC. Pescetto used a photography technique often referred to as transitional photography, or sequence photography, to capture the peculiar motion of the ½ spin Tillmann-Quark (also known as a Cork-Flip). The elusive particle appears to have a reverse rotation quantity of 1 and a horizontal rotation quantity of ½, thus defying symmetry. Though the ½ spin Tillmann-Quark was previously thought to be impossible and disregarded by physicists worldwide, it is now being described as the final piece of the puzzle to classical physics. Some are going as far as to say that the ½ spin Tillman-Quark will explain the final mysteries of the universe.

The Tillmann-Pescetto formula:

~½ = 2Pi + (½) / 2Pi +1 (V^2 – C^2)


munro3 wins a Evoc FR 20L series riding pack.




Sequence Saturday 34 - Ian Hylands sequence of Cam McCauls canyon gap flip. If you haven't figured it out yet winning has nothing to do with props, but more with making a well thought out articulate comment. This weeks winner had both, chainrxn wins with this crazy comment:
bigquotes I once heard that Cam McCaul arm-wrestled Clint Eastwood in a seedy nightclub called The Alibi- an old IHOP that started selling beer to bolster lunch sales and never looked back. McCaul was about to lose, badly, when he remembered that Eastwood was ticklish in the scariest of all places...his bald spot.
McCaul reached out, and instead of manhandling his vodka-soaked short-stack of pancakes like Clint thought, he let his fingers do the moonwalk right over the shiniest place on the mans head.
Needless to say, Clint lost it.
Never before had such peals of laughter echoed through that dank, dark place. The cooks looked up from their toast a la whiskey. The diners looked up from their complimentary wine-cooler fruit-bowls. The hostess woke up for a brief second, mumbled something about Brett Tippie tipping wonderfully (a story for another time), and then fell back asleep in the defunct claw-machine prize bin.
Cam McCaul won something that day, and Clint Eastwood lost his most precious gift- the personal gravity that made him a star. Cam could now soar over canyons and flow down the steepest chutes in perfect poise...double your gravity, double your fun.

chainrxn wins a EVOC Freeride 20L Pack




Sequence Saturday 35 - Ian Hylands sequence of Cam McCaul airing over the Rampage canyon gap. This was a hard one to choose, the winner ends up being Savaninja with this comment:
bigquotes Newsflash: Helicopter crash in Utah. A very small helicopter today crashed in Utah, the cause thought to be linked to the nearby mountain biking event: Red Bull Rampage. As the helicopter was passed over by an as-yet unknown flying object, failure of the aircraft's engines are thought to have occurred due to an ingestion of a large quantity of 'sick air'. Pilot testimony likened the object to two joined flying saucers, with one emitting a ratcheting clicking sound. The Pilot sustained minor injuries, the most significant of which was a hyper-extended stoke gland, but is said to be in an otherwise stable condition. Authorities have warned against further air traffic, as further large quantities of this air are expected to appear in the near future...

Savaninja wins a EVOC Freeride 20L Pack

 Sometimes it is as rewarding to pedal up a steep climb; which no-one else can, as it is to pin it down it. It takes just as much skill, balance, agility and endurance to navigate your way up a surface as it does to bomb it down one. This is why i love mountain biking, is so many different people get so many differen't kicks from so many different aspects of the sport. Some love to climb, some love to cruise and some love to bomb it down a DH track. Mountain Biking us such a versatile aspect of cycling.

 now that`s called "hop-mmitment", cause you really gotta hop and commit my friend, when approaching a climb like that, momentum and speed is what this guy just mastered, like Bruce Lee said "Be water my friend" and so he became the mountain and flowed up!

 There's a short technical climb on one of my local trails that has been my nemesis so far. Even though I fail misserably every time I try it, it's great fun trying to ride it up and holding mini-contests with friends to see who will get further up. I used to hate climbing of any kind but after discovering a few chanlenging technical uphill sections I've changed my mind. If it's fun I'll ride it!

 Eric must've had a full head of steam to get that second hop. Nothing better than defeating a techy climb.

 I know this spot in Sedona & have gotten applause from the pink jeep tourist for just bombing down it. The camera does it no justice - this guy is a badass for riding up it. Most people on this site could ride down it but I doubt if 1 in 100 could ride up it. Steep/technical enough your girlfriend will always walk downSmile

 Technical climbing is ace fun. It looks pretty simple in the pics, that is the beauty of it when someone has the skills to ride things that are difficult. They make the impossible look so simple and possible when they are not.

 I actually think the guy in the sequence deserves a new Evoc bag!!! That was pretty sick but the bag he is wearing makes me wants to be sick. If your doing this type of riding you probably want a decent back pack on your shoulders

 Every time I see a sequence Saturday I tell myself that I'm gonna figure out something to say that's whitty and clever and ill win an evoc bag... But when I see a sequence Saturday like this, with no tricks, hucks, or big roosts, but just a long hard climb. Just the feeling of getting to the top of the mountain, after so many have tried and failed and only you make it up. Eric, I bet hat's a feeling that's worth more than 10 Evoc Bags....

 When I first got into the sport I was obsessed with dropping off of stuff. Then, one day I went with a buddy who rode trials to a boulder that I loved to drop and he changed the world for me. He took an old beater nishiki and hopped up the boulder one piece at a time. Other skill sets may look more flashy to the untrained eye, but the ability to master a technical climb is awe inspiring to those who no what they are seeing.

 I have starred at this for half an hour now and have found the best and most energy saving line. Ride to the edge of the first rock. Apply brakes. Get off bike. Carry bike to top. Problem solved. Also get tubeless tyres. Harder to pinch punched.

 Climbs like this can get so frustratingly addictive when you try them again and again (especially when multiple inner tubes are invested in it!) but when you get them and ride out the top it's always worth the effort for that great sense of satisfaction. Smile

 If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. M.Jordan

 I suppose that I'm going to do a rhyme about this little climb, even though I don't really have the time to spare, or to stare, or to even think about any more words, even though I slightly care about this bag - It would be pretty fab. I like Fabs, they taste nice.

 There once was a Little Train Engine. As the train was delivering all it carried, it faced a tall hill. The Little Engine's friends all tried to climb the hill in the past, but they failed. This Little Engine decided, "I think I can!" And so he trudged up the hill "I think I can, I think I can!" Finally, he made it to the top of the hill. That Little Engine could!

 Soooo... You've been riding DH for quite a while and you're starting to feel like you're flying over techy stuff... Feeling Greg Minaar'ish??? Well, wake up Superman, you're having a wet dream and your f*cking a one armed hooker named Joe. Now try torquing up a 150 bike over techy uphills. Uphill+Downhill skills = more complete rider. My 2 cents

 Right on Pink Bike! As much as I like going downhill (don't we all), I find that some of the most rewarding moments on my bike is when I can actually continue riding and not have to get off and walk a section of trail. Also, what better place to flat than when flowing downhill with a huge grin then to hear psss psss psss psss......

 Eric was the best this day and showed the most heart. Eric had a secret that he was not telling others from the start. Eric's pre-ride meal of mexican was ridiculed as not smart, but Eric knew he would need the extra boost in the form of a fart. Post ride celebration was cut short early, when Eric realized this all resulted in a shart....

 By photography normally is not possible to understand uphill or downhill. So, in this pic the step looks normal, not so huge. I like to try, in these cases, with not so much speed and with 22x34... sometime speed helps much.

 As the sequence starts to load I quickly analyze the line and suddently when the motion of the biker starts I find myself on the saddle pedaling away on that awesome, unknown to me, red dirt. I ride the flat hard anticipating the up, climb onto to the rock and pop that front tire to clear the step-up only to find I nailed it right onto the lip and my chest is suddently one with the handlebars. As the sequence flies away and next thing I see is the real rider already up and away, anger and envy run through my veins first thing in the morning.

 Now most of you may not have noticed but it seems that Sasquatch pokes his head out of the bushes in segment 13. Also, in the next few segments his little babies attack the first rider and that is why he disappeared behind the bushes and did not reappear on the other side. Im sorry but there is really nothing to say about this sequence saturday except that it was probably the least exciting one of all time and if you were stupid enough............ made you look. But really the first guy does disappear...

 Sometimes it is as rewarding to pedal up a steep climb; which no-one else can, as it is to pin it down it. It takes just as much skill, balance, agility and endurance to navigate your way up a surface as it does to bomb it down one. This is why i love mountain biking, is so many different people get so many differen't kicks from so many different aspects of the sport. Some love to climb, some love to cruise and some love to bomb it down a DH track. Mountain Biking us such a versatile aspect of cycling.

I have starred at this for half an hour now and have found the best and most energy saving line. Ride to the edge of the first rock. Apply brakes. Get off bike. Carry bike to top. Problem solved. Also get tubeless tyres. Harder to pinch punched.

Every time I see a sequence Saturday I tell myself that I'm gonna figure out something to say that's whitty and clever and ill win an evoc bag... But when I see a sequence Saturday like this, with no tricks, hucks, or big roosts, but just a long hard climb. Just the feeling of getting to the top of the mountain, after so many have tried and failed and only you make it up. Eric, I bet hat's a feeling that's worth more than 10 Evoc Bags....
