 well no afense or anything but i dont think this should have got pod
  • 10 4
 that's pretty sick pic! how big is the drop?
  • 13 6
 looks like 18 feet give or take a few. damn that would be sick to hit at speed haha EPIC! POD... if you have an Imagination it's even better! nice racing POD!
  • 54 20
 huge drop!props, but not POD material for me.
  • 21 19
 POD? i think theres some better pics out there
  • 23 14
 @ shreddadirt12 --- Why not? Because the sheer size of that drop and the fact that it's a lady about to destroy it intimidates you?
  • 9 3
 she was the only girl to ever hit that drop, and it was the first time it was ever included in a race. btw, this isnt the first POD with that drop. she a badass for being hitting it during her race run

 think you are correct. i mean women should be able to drop that cause guys can do 360's off drops 5ft higher... but that is an insane drop to have in the middle of a course.
  • 9 4
 Props on the picture, I think it deserves POD. That's an impressive feature to hit during a run.
  • 6 1
 Awesome riding totally POD worthy. Would've been better without all the stuff between the rider and the camera, kind had to look at the photo for a tick to see the rider.
  • 2 2
 and apparently its a girl haha awesome!

 awsome shot but imo not pod worthy, why does everyone get all hyped when its a girl?.
  • 6 8
 18 ft? more like 10-12 ft. 18 is pretty huge there bud.
  • 6 3
 If you look at the other pics, its def 10-12 ft, shes just balled up there. Sick shit for mid race run, though i agree with some peeps, terrible photo itself, shit composition, but impressive content.
  • 3 4
 That's a big ass drop and some sick riding make no mistake, but honestly there are some much better pics out there that deserve POD more than this one...

 Pinkbiker's are so critical. Give Brit her day of fame. Give the photographer his day of fame. Ya I'm sure there are better photos out there, but pinkbike has to be appealing to a broad range of bikers.....this one happens to be a "girl in action" shot! So just enjoy it, and tomorrow will be a new day and new POD! Nice Racing Brit it was fun to watch! Josh it was fun racing against you! props on the photo!
  • 5 2
 no rapplez, your comment here is just wrong, if this photo isnt my personal favorite then it doesnt deserve pod. my opinion is better than anyone elses and i feel like i should make it known by criticizing the photographer and rider
  • 2 1
 agreed. just cause its a girl? f*ck that!

 Why are people slating anything about this photo? The drops big, it's a girl in the middle of a race run and the photo has been taken from an interesting and original position. Bearing in mind stuff usually is bigger stood on top of it than when making smartarse comments sat in front of a computer, I suspect a few of the people moaning about it with no pics of them riding on their profile are little pussies who would back down from such a drop with lame excuses. Worthy POD

 well this is pod considering did pinkbike consider photoshop work pods at least this one doesnt look photoshop its a big drop of course are bigger drops photos but this one is from a girl like a thing did we dont see very often so in my opinion its POD

 i know who says that girls cant ride its not fair on them

 POD fo sho! Come on guys this beats the heck out of a lot of pods that have been up lately. Forget about overcooked emo flashy candy pods! Props to the lady and to Girthmore @ Beacon 4 the great shot.
  • 2 0
 Not keen on this photo. The subject isn't obvious and there doesn't seem to be any composure. Is the emphasis on the rider, or the drop, or both? It doesn't give great perspective of the challenge and the photographers position isn't great, it's like he (or she) happened to be there rather than planning the shot, to many obstructions.
But I aren't a photographer so what do I know. Here come neg props, sorry.

 i dont see how people say it isnt POD worthy, ive seen some POD's and VOD's that were shit compared to this
  • 1 1
 Sorry people but I don't agree with this being POD. Yes I have seen worse PODs but the angle is not so good considering there's a tree blocking out half of the rider. Would be a great photo if caught from another angle. Huge drop though so props to the rider.
  • 1 0
 great POD...nice angle and big drop, and its a woman which is rare for POD considering that there are soo many guys ridin...good on yahh !! props to her, that is a pretty huge drop if you ask me :-)
  • 1 1
 THIS ONE FOR EXAMPLE
www.pinkbike.com/photo/4219546
THIS IS THE RIDICULEST POD I HAD EVER SEEN U CAN SEE CLEARLY FOR THE 4 TREES BEHIND THEM TWINS HAPENS TO HUMANS NOT TO TREES ... AND 4 TWIN TREES LOOOOOOOOOOL WHAT THE FUNKY LOOOOOL

 she took second that day so she is not the only girl who hit that drop in here class. two other girls must have hit this. props to all the the girls in that class who had to hit that thing
  • 1 0
 OK fools all you that say not a POD you come hit that drop. Also it's more like 20-25 feet. So until you posting photos of you droping or throwing bigger got eat a pedal.... I do think she was the only girl to hit it that day .
  • 1 0
 20-25 feet.. Only if she is 12 feet tall... Open your eyes dude...
  • 1 0
 ya its only like 14 feet

 The action in the photo is pretty average really, but the photo is nothing special either. Defs not worthy of POD in my opinion.
  • 2 0
 this could have been such a good photo if the photo had been taken in a diffrent place with no trees in the way:/
  • 2 1
 now that im sober. i see the 15-20 foot dropper in front of her, and yea thats crazy stuff. i take what i said last night back haha
  • 4 1
 bad composition
  • 6 0
 I disagree. The lines that cut the composition and separate the spectator from the athlete are interesting and create suspense. I think this is good art and good riding.

Two other points:"She have a big balls" is really funny in a Borat way. Also I'm thinking that drop would scare me half to death -- along with about 85% of other male PB users.

 I don't care if you disagree, this is a bad example of photography.

 What for? It wouldn't make this photo worth a shit... The drop is nice, but certainly not 20 feet and the photo is terrible... I never said I'm a good photographer, just said this one is crap, which I still say..
  • 1 0
 ok never ,mimd this chick is unreal.
  • 1 0
 Well I am am Local ridder and that's my back yard and it's 20 + easy. And if it where only 12 you don't have what is takes to drop it.. Don't bag on the pictures if you can't take them !!!!
  • 1 0
 Ya 20+ for sure...http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/4118387/ .. Gimme a break... "you don't have what it takes to drop it", no offence, but you've never seen me ride so don't assume anything... Fact of the matter is, from a photographic standpoint it is a weak shot... I said the drop is nice, just not 20+ feet, give your ego a break...
  • 1 0
 No ego here I have not droped it

here you go www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QH9eRj6uwQ&feature=related

www.pinkbike.com/video/128354 at the end of this video and do keep in mind jumps drops and things like that tend to look smaller in photo's and video's..
  • 1 0
 Thats a sweet video and a sweet track.. Still not 20+ feet though.. I did keep in mind that the camera usually doesn't do justice, if you look at the people compared to the drop it's not 20 feet.. Being generous, I'd give it 14ft and a gap of maybe the same.. I'm not denying it is nice, just not as big as you say, but I guess we'll never know until it's measured..
  • 1 0
 ive actually measured it and its 18 feet from lip to lip but thats with the gap also.

 That would make sense, tis a sweet track you have there...
