 I could just hear that guy that does all of those commercials for movies, you know with that really epic voice "In the mountains of Val di Fassa, Italy... Two bikers... One Ninja... One desire...Mauro and David this summer will be... Pinkbike's POD"

 @ Looorney: I don't know what you learned in in school but the Northern Hemisphere, Autumn starts on September Equinox which is 23rd September this year.

 Kamba6 don't be so hard on him, he is not as fortunate as you to have Autumn all year round to know so much about it.

 Actually, when this picture was taken/posted (September 13th) it was still summer technically.
Summer ends on September 21, yesterday.

 Kamba6 - I know, I'm in western Sweden - we get the sht that's left in the clouds, that didn't manage to fall on you guys... this year it is especially interesting, we both get all what's left off those hurricanes that didn't fell in US. Today we had all four seasons in the morning, didn't know whether to wear shorts or winter jacket - FUN!

 @kamba6 I don't know how your comment has 6 thumbs up. The equinox is on the 21st...
  • 4 0
 I can say something about equinox date as, in a way, I work professionaly with it. I do shadow studies for arch projects quite often, and you do them for june, december and march/september. These studies are made for municipalities and I can tell you one thing: every fkn one says something different.

Let's agree that autumn eqinox is between 20th and 24th od September. And let's leave it there. Who TF cares about exact date save a nutter going into the middle of woods at midnight, to stab someone tied to a stone table with 12" dagger to gain immortality, or make all cows in Missisipi sht themselves to create compost for next year crops... he really wants to get the date and time right otherwise the prophecy says it's gonna ne his family to sht themselves to death

 Without opening the photo I knew this was in the Dolomites. If that were me riding it would be a crash POD. I'd crash looking at the geology in this scene! The tops of those mountains were, once, the bottom of the sea. Fantastic shot!
  • 1 0
 That's the Dolomites for sure! The only problem is keeping your eyes on the trail, instead of the crazy scenery that strikes you at every corner. And more often than not, the scenery wins... brake, stop and take it all in!!! Not the best mountains for shredding like a maniac!

 Hi guys from Fassa Valley.. It was so nice read all your comments about the pics and the place where I have the fortune to leave..
For all the fassabike.com crew that days was so amazing and for me was so nice meet David and Tim from Worldbikeparks..
The name of the mountain on the background is "Larsec" and close there there is the 3 Vajolet towers where years ago was made the Cliffhanger movie..you remember?!
Look at this mountain still surprise me every day and is a plasure share this with you...

Enjoy your ride where ever you are!

Ciao by Ninja
