Its steep, see the plant growing straight up in the bottom there?
(Nov 2, 2013 at 1:51)
(Nov 2, 2013 at 2:05)
Mmmm, top view.
(Nov 2, 2013 at 7:24)
just to lookers left of that pile of gravel at the bottom... has this been shot before? I could have sworn there's another picture of this floating around.
(Nov 2, 2013 at 8:23)
The only plant would be the face plant I would do after going OTB if I tried riding this.
(Nov 2, 2013 at 9:02)
It had been shot before
(Nov 2, 2013 at 9:11)
1996 fully ridged and again in 2001 on a super 8 but actually airing that pot hole on the top right.. But ya, its steep enough to session..
(Nov 2, 2013 at 18:28)
heres a side shot, doesnt have the same feel but it gives you an idea of how the photo was taken!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 18:33)
^ The pitch on that is insane. I wonder how fast you're going when you reach the bottom?

Why is he riding down my counter top?
(Nov 2, 2013 at 0:58)
kinda confused since it looks like he is biking on a leveled ground or not so steep hill yet the tilt makes it look steep, or it is actually steep? HEEELPPP MUH BRAIN IS HURRTING
(Nov 2, 2013 at 5:14)
i can assure you its insanely steep, or it wouldnt be pod.
(Nov 12, 2013 at 11:31)
but then again.... the road biker got pod......
(Nov 2, 2013 at 7:12)
What you don't see is you have to stop traffic or make sure no vehicle are coming since this is 4' from Highway 1A.
It is steep, there's no slowing down and you do cross the road. Not technically hard, just balls.
When you drive by (or ride), you realize how steep it is... Standing at the top of it... even steeper!
Great shot!!! Great riding!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 14:39)
Anywhere here, isn't it? About 35...40 degrees. Great!!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 14:54)
its over to the right on the next section of wall.. but yes that is the place..
(Nov 2, 2013 at 16:52)
Wow, that place is beautiful
(Nov 2, 2013 at 2:27)
thats one dank rock formation aye
(Nov 2, 2013 at 2:48)
(Nov 2, 2013 at 13:24)
Yes its been posted before something very similar. Me and my mate Kurt rode those rock faces back when we lived in Banff, there is 2 or 3 that we made rideable way back then,created a transition at the bottom with all the shale, we hadn't heard of anyone that had ridden them then, Has to be 7 years ago now. We had some great pics if only I could find them to post. Nice photo though.
(Nov 2, 2013 at 6:11)
I think hes riding down. If you take a close look at what shadows are there it shows where the ground actually is. None the less great shot!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 8:00)
I love riding on Dinosaur eggs too!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 8:05)
Where's the nose manny, common Brandon...
(Nov 2, 2013 at 10:38)
Unfortunately due to the ambiguity of the shot it's hard to tell if he's riding down a slope, or the photographer is leaning over a ledge and taking the shot from above.
(Nov 2, 2013 at 1:40)
video evidence or it didn't happen
(Nov 2, 2013 at 0:03)
such a cool perspective, Great photo!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 0:05)
Dang where is this place. That's sick!!!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 0:07)
Is he riding on level ground or not cause I cant tell
(Nov 2, 2013 at 0:41)
g = -9.80m/s²
(Nov 2, 2013 at 7:46)
Acceleration due to gravity is about*. And why the negative sign?
(Nov 2, 2013 at 9:10)
Ap physics actually being put to use in real life i must tell my physics teacher ASAP!!!!!!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 10:34)
The negative sign is used to indicate direction, -9.8m/s^2 means acceleration towards the ground, or down.
(Nov 2, 2013 at 10:43)
YURP i wanted to see if anyone else knew! Very well explained too Larry!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 11:39)
(Nov 2, 2013 at 11:51)
Haha thanks, credit goes to my Physics teacher!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 13:11)
No problem man! Same creds to my ap physics teacher.... That class is insanely hard i have like no time to ride bc of it :/
(Nov 2, 2013 at 13:22)
YEAH MR. KIRWAN
(Nov 2, 2013 at 13:25)
Mine isn't too bad, its a morning class and I have a good teacher, I just haven't been to it in a while and we have a huge unit test when I get back. The rest of school takes all my time to ride, T/Th I'm at school from 8am to 6:30pm, and I'm lucky to get home before 7pm on weekdays. I wish Daylight Savings Time wasn't ending.
(Nov 2, 2013 at 13:38)
Oh ya thats right u just broke your collarbone or some right?
(Nov 2, 2013 at 13:42)
And that sucks balls man im sorry and ya i sympathize with ya 100% when I got my concussion i was out for 2 and a half weeks and got sick 2 times in the middle of class ( when i say sick i actually had a brain annourisn) because 3 girls had the led flash on, on their iPhones and they all went off within a 5 second period of time and i blacked out and started throwing up everywhere so i missed like 3 tests and a big lab so i feel ya
(Nov 2, 2013 at 7:30)
crazy bastard!!! keep kicking ass
(Nov 2, 2013 at 6:16)
this might be in a superheros movie- saw brian O ride it .goat steep.
(Nov 2, 2013 at 1:08)
someone just went on a neg prop spree there
(Nov 2, 2013 at 2:07)
Someone had a bad day I guess. I just went down n gave y'all a thumbs up! Still spring people, get on n ride!
(Nov 2, 2013 at 1:52)
He clearly has super powers
(Nov 2, 2013 at 10:04)
