A shot from a shoot I had with Joe on Snowdon for "North Wales Mountain Bike Trails" guidebook. Turned out to be a really good day considering the sidewards hail, icy trails and 3+ inches of snow at the top. Keep an eye out for the book soon! - Laurence CE - www.laurence-ce.com

 Personally, i think cheese and pickle is an ideal sandwich filler. Forget the rest, just cheese and pickle complimenting eachother beautifully. You can't go wrong

 Really love this shot, also the fact he's riding a bit far way since you'll still be able to see a lot of the terrain!

 @ IanHylands . . . .

Your comment for this picture could spark a 29er debate.

Visually, very appealing. Plus 1

 @Waldon83 - If this is a good reason to start a 29er debate, then nose wheeling a Penny Farthing is the way to go on this trail...
  • + 1
 some people here will need a proper explanation on this Big Grin if one can nose wheelie a penny, what is the need for a rear wheel?Big Grin Big Grin good one WAKIdesigns Smile 29'ers don't need any debate on them - they're just another great idea turned into a real thing Smile

 Within last two years I got really retarded so I have those thoughts in my head like: why do guys of guys brag so much about porn? There is no better way to admit to everybody that you are a wanker.

 talking about a good picture we end up with porn and at least one wanker Big Grin don't waste your time on such useless thoughts, there is always a wanker around the corner Big Grin

 absolutely gross picture.. eww.. XC guys are just as bad as roadies..how is this fun? do you like dicks up your ass while you ride on rough terrain?
  • + 12
 Xc guys are just as bad as roadies?? First off. Roadies arnt all that bad, they still ride bikes, their just not near as awesome as mountain bikers. Second off. f*ck you. Third off. XC is still mountain biking...its just for those a little more tame, so have some god damned respect for other bikers.

 Pinkbike should create two Photos of The Days... A photographer's photo of the day, and a rider's photo of the day. This one would be under the photographer's photo of the day.

 Why? I've seen videos of the place and it sure looks fun to ride... Its different than your average berm or dirt jump shot.
  • + 1
 Yeah, what do you mean? This could just as easily be under the riding shot.

 1. pinkbike should be pink
2. pinkbike should create a "post of the day" category - impossible I think to "fish" some good posts and pick one a'day
