 When building trails with big gaps, how do you figure out the distance between the kicker and transition? Do you just go by feel, after many years of experience, or do you have a more scientific way to calculate it?

Your fest series jumps are absolutely massive, yet always seem to flow perfectly.

 Aggy/Everyone: I broke my back freeriding 5 yrs ago and have struggled to get back on the bike. It kills me to see my bikes collecting dust in the garage but have not been able to work up the courage to pull them out again.

How have you overcome your biggest accidents? And what helped you get back on the bike?

 In your mind what is the appropriate progression to a backflip? I love to shred and build trails and have been thinking of building the proper jump and landing for a backflip... but what else should I be focusing on so that I am progressing towards the goal safely. The easiest way is just throwing your body at it and doing it.... but my wife isnt the biggest fan of that plan considering she's a stay at home mom and I have a life outside of trying to playing on my bike and being a kid again.

 Casey, what draws you to go riding with the lads? You always seem like your having fun riding with boys when not many ladies in the sport are doing that kind of a thing.

 To all of you : Should Rampage continue ? It seems to me way to dangerous to carry on. It is not because we CAN do it that we SHOULD.
  • + 2
 Should we ban hand guns?
  • + 1
 Thats why you dont compete in it... If they thought the risks were too high they wouldn't compete either. Look at Darkfest or Loosefest, those jumps were insane, just as if not more dangerous than rampage for the sheer speed required.
