 in Canada...in winter...yes!
  • + 39
 No dude Canada all year is snowed in ! And we also use polar bears as transportation to get around town, but sadly yes our police ride horses...
  • + 36
 I bet my Kangaroo is faster then your polar bear!

 why is it sad that our cops have a mounted division????
  • + 0
 cuz they get mounted...
  • + 1
 It's called tradition so i don't see how it's sad to retain tradition
  • + 5
 Just because its tradition doesn't mean its good. I could make it a tradition to murder someone every christmas, but i wont.
  • + 3
 what about being burned at the stake? lol thats was a tradition wayy longer than the freaking mounted police haha
  • + 4
 had to say something about the polar bear / kangaroo situation .. polar bears can run as fast as race horses according to david attenburgh ..
  • + 1
 Haha apparently even the slowest bear can run faster then any human... sideways Blank Stare ok you win..
  • - 6
 it's kinda hard to compare murder to the first form police/protection in Canada i know some RCMP(Royal Canadian Mounted Police) guys and it's no easy task to become one there training is very demanding they deserve mad respect and for the record they don't ride horses everywhere they have cars and trucks just like other police the name is tradition as well as the parade uniform, basically you can make fun of them if you want i really don't care but the have amounted to more then you more then likely will ever so say what you want but if your not gonna say it to there face then enjoy being an internet tough guy everyone is really intimidated by you

 What I like about POD, you can either create a scene with lighting and background to make a nice photo, have a natural background with someone pulling a sick gap or trick... Or catch the moment where you look and think oh my god. Imagine being amongst that. And this is that photo. Regardless of colour or background or lighting. This seriously catches the moment that death is lurking close. One false move and you are guna be in pain. I love it. And can not wait till this weekends race at the avalanche!

 Where's waldo?
  • + 7
 There he is (pixel 9803) !
  • - 43
 There are only 1080 pixels dumbass...
  • + 39
 There are 1707200 pixels you dumbass...
  • + 5
 Does the pixel count not depend entirely on the screen resolution?
Sorry for being well off biking subject.
  • + 8
 BikeNERD clearly is not a computer nerd Smile
  • + 3
 @randybadger no... e.g. if you zoom in close enough to a given image, the number of pixels on your screen will outnumber the number of pixels in that part of the image, therefore allowing for the distinguishing of pixels in the image..... so you will see square edges of pixels. Well off topic but thought I'd try and answer your question.
  • + 1
 Smart people.
  • + 1
 That make perfect sense. So what we are saying is from a purely photographic point of view images have a definitive pixel count, which are then viewed on our monitors of varying resolution

 I feel a Ride of the Valkyries moment coming on!
[Reply]
  • + 1
 Ze Germans are coming lol.... This looks amazing! We are currently in the alps prepping for the mega avalanche. Got race no sorted. Been hitting the practice runs all week. But yesterday was a surge of riders. And the uplifts were packed! Well worth watching from the lifts when someone crashes. Highly amusing.
[Reply]

 if someone crashes there's going to be a huge domino effect. Pretty amazing photo.

 Sweet pic!!! If this were video the soundtrack could be the classical piece featured in "Apocolypse Now" Wagner's Flight of the Valkyries....

 It's a rowdy race, you should get over here and do both the Mega and MOH. They're different but both pretty mad, and riding that glacier is awesome. That said, the 5am alarm for each race sucks...
