 Mmmm, top view.

 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.
  • + 24
 The only plant would be the face plant I would do after going OTB if I tried riding this.

 It had been shot before

 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..

 ^ 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?
  • + 8
 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

 i can assure you its insanely steep, or it wouldnt be pod.
  • + 3
 but then again.... the road biker got pod......

 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!

 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.

 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!

 I love riding on Dinosaur eggs too!

 Where's the nose manny, common Brandon...

 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.

 video evidence or it didn't happen

 Dang where is this place. That's sick!!!

 g = -9.80m/s²
  • + 3
 Acceleration due to gravity is about*. And why the negative sign?
  • + 1
 Ap physics actually being put to use in real life i must tell my physics teacher ASAP!!!!!!
  • + 5
 The negative sign is used to indicate direction, -9.8m/s^2 means acceleration towards the ground, or down.

 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.

 Oh ya thats right u just broke your collarbone or some right?
  • + 1
 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
