    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.

    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!

    That was intense! Was the guy in a pinstriped suit?
