Nice lil vid

Thanks for sharing. I'll bet the video doesn't capture the steepness of those trails... coefficient of friction.

I gotta get out this weekend.

It's tough to show steepness of trails on photo or video. Best way is to get low, but that often covers up a lot of the cool terrain. Cocking the camera a little more than normal helps give the "feeling" of how steep it was too. Also the fact that most of that section was in shade gives it very little depth because of no shadows. You can tell the steepness from when my uni flies down the hill :P

If that the video didn't catch the actual steepness of the trail I hate to know how really steep it was. It looked plenty challenging to me and you guys showed some great skills.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks! Phil is a really good rider. I have a lot to work on. I was never amazing, but it's incredible how much you lose after a year and a half of not being able to ride.
