 90s blue mirror white framed sunglasses under fullface. It just needs a pressure suit and it's a perfect homage to early rampage.

 I only ride park.

 First time was in 2003 with an old Cannondale hard tail and a Rock Shox Judy "long travel" fork. Dented the frame, blew out the fork, and spent the better part of an hour puking in the bushes after it was all said and done. Loved it.

Bought a dual suspension bike the next weekend.

 The rock thrown off the drop killed me Big Grin

 Not enough Tacomas on parking lot.

 Not specific to the shore. Pretty much applies to anyone's first time.

 So much gold in that one. Classic!!

 Did anyone else try to reach through their screen to hit the kids dropper post lever?
  • + 7
 But yes, Wade is the godfather

 Wade is pretty much the Chuck Norris of mtb.

 "Wait, did you use your dropper?"

 Drop everything... new IFHT video!

 I remember my first time riding the shore. I thought I was good at mountain biking (grew up riding on the prairies).... Pipeline showed me otherwise.... Don't know if there has ever been more OTBs in one lap than that first day.

 Really appreciate this video. I remember seeing a skill show at the Calgary stampede, maybe 2010, and it was mind boggling, made me feel very unskilled. You don't realize what lengths people go, and it's also just as surprising the lengths people don't give a flying fuck.
  • + 1
 An example was another show at the Calgary Stampede maybe 2014, and there's just like a 350lb woman sitting there eating ice cream watching these people jumping their bikes, quads, and dirt bikes, amazing acrobatic feats. She obviously never ever gave one flying fuck about that shit in her life, just a hilarious contrast.

 this is highly accurate. went through all these steps. including the Wade Simmons part

 Glad to see he made what looks like a full recovery m.pinkbike.com/news/graphic-broke-my-ankle-riding-dh-video.html

 I think we all can relate to bringing a buddy to the mtn for the first time to DH. I just feel bad when they get legit injured. A buddy of mine only made it 50 ft down a gravel fire road before needing stiches in his hand.

 I rode Rental Bikes with my son Aaron, at Mt. Washington, years ago.... He took pity on me after 50 feet, because I was bleeding from both shins and both forearms!! Who knew that a Double Black Diamond wasn't for beginners??? BTW, I was even wearing pads.. That's all that they missed... the blood!!!

 I still have those kneepads. I still use those kneepads. What are you saying?
  • + 2
 Same here, I had actually been thinking over the last few months about how long i've been using them and how i'm still pretty satisfied. Then i started wondering if i'd get laughed at by the POC crowd when showing up with them at the bike park... and then they had to put them on the squid in the video. Fuck it, i'll wear them out of defiance.

 I love face expressions of Wade Simmons, freaking hilarious, and I mean it in the best of ways Big Grin I'd love to meet him, I'd ride a 2014 RM Altitude and would start asking him about changes on the new model and watch his face change from Oh Hi, to Kill me now.
