Late July + Pentiction = F'n hot!
Ryan Berrecloth, ready to make it happen.
Watering makes bumps grow into jumps.
This was the last drop of the line. Here, Ryan contemplates on whether to put the three hours of labor into it to make it ridable, as the landing is peppered with huge boulders hidden amongst the tall grass.
In the end, we decided to scrub the last hit, as it was just way to much work, for not enough reward.
The first time hitting a line you've pumped yourself up on for so long can be a bit nervy...especially when you're not sure how fast you need to go to make the Chiclet-sized landing on the first gap. Too far and it's blow up time, too short and it's goodbye to your rear.
This was the first hit. Perfect placement. Now it was time to send it. Once.
Due to the fact that all the hits were really close together, you needed to hit all of them to hit any of them. Good for video, not so good for photos, or the rider. Thanks Ryan, for hitting it like twenty-five times.
...No, thank you Margus, for making me hike twenty-five times. I sure hope you got the shot.
With the sun setting on Ryan's line, we packed it in for the night, and readied ourselves for Silverstar. BTW - We got the shot...look for it at the Race Face booth in Vegas.
