    i might be down for blockhouse on sunday. as long as it's not too windy. i'm still a little sore from crashing a dirtbike on turkeyday. so i'd be taking it pretty easy. oh, how i hate step-ups.

    nothing major. we went out and tried to build some bigger jumps, for bikes with no pedals. the landing for our step up has a turn as soon as you land. i tagged a little coming up the step up and got squirrely. washed the front tire, tried to correct and high-sided the bike. which as we all know will buck you off pretty damn fast. my shoulder is super stiff. i can still ride ok though.

    We went out to the Blockhouse jumps after work today. How fun! Does anyone know who built those up?

    Is it kinda like when you go to a golf course and take out a big divet, you're supposed to stomp it back in?

    yeah...if you "mess up" a jump....by casing or scraping it with something etc, you should fill it in and stomp on it for show at least... at 9th, its frowned upon not to fill your divets...
