 How can such roost have been accumulated without a throttle...?
  • + 28
 Depends how much loose dirt you throw on the berm before taking the shot. Awesome pic tho!

 why the hell do i get neg props? The shot is from a young kid friend of mine.it just happened by mistake. I am trying to explain that you don't need to load a berm with dirt in order to get a good roost as VPS13 said.

 Roost and Mountain biking don't really fit together in my books. I call this skidding.. kinda like kicking dust with your foot.. You wanna see a roost, look on Youtube.. Great picture still though!

 He's breaking heavely he's also looking in the direction of travel and if it was a roost he would be looking straight in the direction of travel
  • + 2
 A roost is done by pumping hard around a berm no break needed that is why a roost is good

 when the dust settles from the berm, you'll just see an angry guy with a spade in the background chasing the rider

 I really enjoy watching people explode my corners , it doesnt bother me if they spray shit every where aslong as they get around the corner and don't ride out the top of it.

 voted for this picture the whole way through, it was the first one that really stood out to me, the dirt looks as if it were still moving. amazing shot, the only other one i would have said competed with this is the one by Dave Trumpore where the water has the same features, seems to still be splashing even though its a still. i would have been hard pressed to choose between this and that one in the finals, but people voted his down sad, but it made for an easy final vote! PHOTO OF THE YEAR! GET IT!
