There's double track, single track, and then there's urinary track...

It's all about the right bike for the job, according to the rider's
weight. Your bike at your weight would be a good fit for that trail.

You live over there, Mark. When is the last time you ventured over
there to ride? If I lived there, it would at least be a monthly
excursion for me because it's so close.

Never made it to Goat Camp (well, I did make it to Goat Camp in
Glacier National Park in Montana, but that's a different story).

The video reminded me a lot of Geronimo (lots o' loose, large rocks),
which I just didn't enjoy all that much.

It's much more technical than Geronimo.

Moderately steep. Another view can be seen back around the 5 minute mark
(non-helmetcam shot of a rider riding the outside line)

Yes, we climbed to the ridge on other trails and then descended Goat Camp

Hmmm... I'm gone (for a while, anyway) but I guess, not forgotten.
Anyhow, I believe the correct quote is "look at the penalty for failure,

In case anyone is interested, I've uploaded a new,
and better, version of the vid.

Similar file size, same quality, bigger video size
(704x396 vs. 428x240) and I fixed the pixel aspect
ratio and eliminated the slight vertical compression.

It's surprisingly viewable at 200%.

I'll also be redoing the holycross and grouse vids
in the same manner.

Man oh man you should see all the smack talking going on over at MTBR AZ
about your video! I think you should set up some hidden X10 cameras to
capture some of them when they attempt it.

I haven't visited mtbraz and most likely won't due to the whole mtbr
attitude but

several of the people that were on the ride I crashed on do this ride about
once a month. My understanding is that several helmets have had to be
replaced after some of the rides. I would suggest these aren't the guys
posting trash to mtbr!
