I first met Jake on a couple months back on a trip to Woodward West, where he currently works as the Woodward West MTB director. Jake is one the nicest guys I have ever met and is always stoked on everything. He came down to Colorado to compete at Ranchstyle and to spend a couple weeks with all the locals having a good time, shredding, and meeting new people.

Jake and I had spent a couple days riding and chatting. He mentioned maybe making a short video of a day at Valmont, showcasing everything the park has to offer and compete in the Tuesday night dual slalom race. I thought it was a fun idea...this is the result.

 Love it! Our offices are about 4 miles away from this place. It is certainly our local pride and joy. Huge props to the city for supporting such an awesome park. It's nice to know that we have such a sweet place that won't be ripped up or taken away from us. It's going to help raise up a generation of really great shredders and bike park volunteers. Really nice camera work, too. Great movement. The video felt as flowy as the trails.

 i believe its called a micro dermal, what they do is cut a chunk out of your skin and then place the desired jewellery in the hole and the skin kind of grows around it... i just know because some girl that had it done between her boobs and i just had to ask

 That's kind of gross... What if you get sick of it, and want to change it? :S

 there are some that have threads so you can swap out the colours or have crystals or whatever but if you want to get rid of it then i guess you're s..t out of luck and have to cut it out... or you could always just use super glue and beadazzle yourself that way

 Excellent showcase of Valmont. We are lucky to have that and our summer ski resorts here. Woulda been sweet to see some XL lines on the slope style side though.
