 Prayers up for the squids who will now try some of these.

 Yeah there was guy who sued a few years ago because he tried to pre-jump the drop like they do in this vid and ended up paralyzed. I feel bad for him but know your limits.

 I love that he called the first drop a "scrub catcher" It's so true though... really does make you think twice about what the rest of the trail will be like.

 @sharky1983: I think its more of balls at that point. Catching the rear wheel is terrifying.

 @Powderface: You mean the guy who was a former first aid patroller for the bike park with thousands of laps under his belt who then tried to make out like he didn't know it was dangerous?

 @Powderface: that guy was actually part of the trail crew if i remember correctly. He tried to sue. It took a number of years before a judge basically called him a moron for trying to sue after she(the judge) read the waiver for Whistler.

 Jump for show; corner for dough.

 Seriously, that cornering on Ninja Cougar was the most impressive part of this video for me. Your typical expert can do most of those prejumps, but that cornering speed is crazy.

 Yeah call me a coward but I have never tried that rock drop in A-line. Maybe next time. But I did have good times on Freight Train though.
  • 5 0
 The rock drop isn't that bad. I don't do it like the dudes in this video, but it is pretty chill and doesn't feel as big as it looks. I like to come in a bit to the right and it sets you up nice for the catch berm at the bottom. try it next time!
