Cool....thanks for posting. Having been an avid Mountain biker for many years though only in th country not city mountain biking (haha).....that was fun to see.
I have alot of respect for those who do it at that level. I know a Steeplechase Jockey who use to ride in mountain bike races and was really good at it.
I think one of the hardest things in mountain biking is the bike does not help you the way a horse does. Also when it came to jumps I found my bike had a nasty stop in it....lol
It is a fun sport but I'll take my horse over it any day....I still get out on the trails some in the summer but not so much since I fracture my knee cap falling on a rock.

So if he doesn't ride the line? I kept picturing him coming off a jump into the crowd lol! Similar people and animals in the way on course..... :)

Could that be our solution to the loss of land problem? :) Use bad neighborhoods with crumbling sidewalks and road construction for our cross country courses!
