Photo of the Day on

- I'm a sucker for epic AM shots, and this image of Richey Schley by Mattias Fredriksson is just the ticket for the crap weather outside. Gazing at this makes me want to book a ticket for somewhere with trails like this.

if you look 2 mountains from the middle one to the left you will see a brown patch. I am in that patch picnicking when this picture was taken.
(Jan 23, 2012 at 1:19)
You know whats sad? its that i actually looked for that spot you said. hahaha
(Jan 23, 2012 at 1:36)

(Jan 23, 2012 at 3:29)

(Jan 23, 2012 at 8:10)

(Jan 23, 2012 at 19:12)
@KURTSUCKS, the thing thats even sadder is that I thought I had found the place in the picture until I read your comment.

It is pretty funny, that it took so many years for both die-hard XC and DH riders to see something fun in between. It took so many "epic" pictures so someone can respect the best of both worlds. For many, it was always like that, it's just that bikes got better. Still only those can enjoy such places who are skilled and strong at the same time, Cheers to them!
A bike is just a brush connecting an artist to a canvas
too bad even the finest brush in the hands of a poor artist will destroy it, like a hand blurring and smudging this graphic that trail is... I don't smoke pot - If I would it could be dangerous

This de between Soriška Planina(Soriska mountain) and Črna Prst (black earth), I think, fairly close to my home =)
Far behind on the left you can see black ski summit(Črni vrh), on the right Porezen Hill. Where the ride is about 1600m + above sea level.

It's been quite a long time since our last slovenian POD, so I am STOKED to se one now. This made my my day, at first I heard about Watts breaking his back, now this makes me feel beter!
(Jan 23, 2012 at 6:54)
I didn't hear about Watts- where did you read this? Proper harsh- gutted for him.

Vital MTB, and now Pinkbike!
(Jan 24, 2012 at 5:36)
Yep, that's some bad shit. Thank God he's not paralysed.
(Jan 24, 2012 at 8:38)
When I began reading I was like cool, later nervous, than freaking out and when I read that he's not paralyzed i felt such a relief!
(Feb 25, 2012 at 14:25)

I love that this photo could be anyone who can ride a bike. Sometimes a bunch of absolutely insane riding shots creates a bit of a disconnect between the photo and myself. Although they are inspiring, they dont give me that feeling of I want to be that rider, right there, right now. The simplicity of the rider also makes me focus on the image as a photographer, inspiring me to find places like this and take such clean photos.

Kje točno je tole?/Where exactly is this?
Takoj, ko zgnije sneg, moja must-go destinacija.
/ As soon as the snow melts, I'm sooo riding this trail!
Zakaj PB misli, da sem Canadian??
(Nov 30, 2011 at 9:55)
It would be awesome if there was a zip line from mountain to mountain
(Jan 23, 2012 at 0:02)
morzine's already got one
(Jan 23, 2012 at 10:00)
(Jan 23, 2012 at 8:57)
Haha. It's funny, because people from the US / Canada wants to come to Europe while we want to live in the Rocky Mountain...
(Jan 23, 2012 at 10:41)

(Jan 23, 2012 at 1:31)
Didn't notice the rider till i looker properly, great pic.
(Jan 23, 2012 at 6:48)
After yesterday's POD this rider sticks out like a sore thumb! I get your point though, sometimes the scenery is so distracting that you forget there is even supposed to be a rider in the shot. If I were riding there I doubt I'd be able to keep the bike on the trail for constantly staring at the views! I guess there is something to be said for riding in the dense forest where you sort of get tunnel vision. It is a great shot.
