Selfie aboard the Kona Honzo. Most days spent building this trail were cold dark and wet. Stoked to have a shot that fits that theme.

 Can we appreciate for a second that the last shot is 1) a selfie (timer?) and 2) a hardtail 29? Savage. The rest are epic, that's for sure, but for some reason I keep coming back to that last one. I guess my want for a Honzo is strong!

 I don't think I'd have the stones to roll that, let alone in the slippery wetness! Respect!

 I was already wondering how that could have been a selfie. Yeah, the riding is amazing. Flying onto a slippery slab like that. Seems like he doesn't expect grip, he could just as well huck it.

 Now that @bradwalton doesn't have to pay federal lawyer fees in NC just for riding his bike, he gets to use his toys in more fun and truly epic ways.

 All the pics are just usual 'rad' fare. But number one. That is some unusual shenanigans and for that alone it deserves it.
Can you imagine been chased by that!?

 It's not the first rider that's amusing it's the second. You know he wants to pass, but he's not sure how. He didn't put enough saddle time with a giraffe during training.
