Default Black Diamond

I have been riding Black Diamond lately, there are some really nice trails up in them hills.

With the summit hill freeride park right there as well it is a pretty complete package.

Nothing brutal just lots of good technical trail, just like I like it.

Side note: I crashed pretty bad at Soaring Eagle. Sad sad sad. I regard SE as a beginners ride and I have done it a gad zillion times. This time I decided to leave my pads / armor in the trunk because it was "only" soaring eagle... Sure enough I was hitting the new bridge they built at speed and the front tire washed a bit to much when I hit the lip. Neary broke my arm smacking into the side of the small bridge, and totally crushed my ego. Suffice it to say I will wear my armor next time.

I see folks riding all the time wearing nothing but gloes and a peanut. I ride with a full face and leg/arm pads. I went to a full face after my second face in the dirt crash at duthie. Either I suck or they don't ride as aggressively. I have some kind of fall almost every ride. Haha well either way I have fun
