I'm sure he'll take that bet, count me in as well.
I need some cash too.

I flat base all the time, I just get a little bit lower than normal & let my feet & ankles turn to jelly.

It would be the same as if you had a board & let it go on its own.
Sure it bounces around a little bit, but @ no time is it on edge for more than a fraction of a second because nothing is keeping pressure on the edge.

It's just something you will develop with time.

If I want to go fast, it's flat base time.

I've gone in a few Chinese Downhill races, if you can't ride flat based?
You're in the back half of the pack.
I'll see ya when you get to the bottom

The guy who wins, was on his edge the least amount of time.
Unlike Boardercross, the Chinese Downhill is about picking the right line.
The straightest line wins.

Money please.
Pay-Pal or Money order?
