    And, the next day was gorgeous. Here's a pov clip that doesn't accurately show how steps things are at all. Upper Bike Thief to Bin Logdin. Lower Bike Thief was closed to prepare for the Canada Cup DH race in July. I'm the one in black that's being followed.

    No more stoke this year. Two broken metacarpals thanks to a crappy amateurish take off on a jump and an even worse landing.

    Heal up! I had a wrist dislocation for the the same reason. Just fooling around on a small jump ending up costing me a closed reduction then surgical repair in 1/18. Now, I’ll need carpel tunnel release for hand numbness and weakness related to the injury. Hopefully you’ll back riding soon!

    Thanks. Wont be doing much riding until next year now. We will likely have snow by the time I'm good to go again.

    If I can hit the snowboard reasonably well at least I can be somewhat active this winter.

    Been a couple decades since I broke a bone.

    Dude, healing juju for you! Been there, broke my fibula a couple years ago from a mediocre at best crash. Down for almost 5 months total right in prime riding time.

    And watching the above video makes me realize how spoiled I have gotten by watching gimbal based videos. Was watching that and almost felt sea sick!

    Got up to Northstar Resort last month. Rode 30 miles of DH. Super fun day. imagejpeg_0.jpg
