Snowbun made TV! At one point showing the crowd there she was right up front in front of the camera having a ball (hiding the fact her toes were cold enough to freeze hell over itself).

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

Terje one footing it was the highlight for me.
Is that a Method?!

Terje's got some nice Crowbars (and I'm not just saying that because I have them) :P

Yeah, I was in front of the cameras quite a bit. Good job spotting me! Going to have to check the media, see if any of my pics made headlines

Suburban, where you up there?!?! Damn, I wish I could've known about that - could've saved myself alot of trouble. And yeah, Terje's jump was awesome. Scotty did well too.

Next year - they need to bring some heatlamps!

Although, part of my big toe is still numb from the cold; I've been keeping it warm with foot warmers and water, but no dice. It feels like someone shot it up with Novacaine. If it's not better by tomorrow, I'm going to have to go see a doc about frostbite. Good thing I wasn't planning on riding this weekend anyway (heatwave).

The setup of the jump was not good at all, I'll admit. All the riders kept fucking up on the landings - they just couldn't get enough air and speed.

My toes definitely felt like they would be falling off. I had to get my ass home! Lol. Glad you got some kinda positive reenforcement by the end


Yes, the ramp was disappointing but come on guys, for NYC, it was pretty rad. We're lucky to have gotten that much!

we're lucky to have gotten anything at all! I didn't expect there to be that many people.

It was funny, but around the finals, me and a few other people turned around - and we realized there was practically no one left! It was packed just half an hour before. People froze out, lol. The worst part was walking from the park back to the subway station - 15 minutes to Delancey/Essex!

Next time, they should have this somewhere on the UWS or Central Park. The winds coming off the East River were brutal.

Lol yea I got there around 6 and it was super packed! Little by little I was able to inch my way further up as people started to leave. I was almost right at the barricades when the cold kicked my ass. Walking back up to the subway was stiff! It felt like I had armor on lol. But, still a good experience.

You're right though, being by the water didn't help either. I'm packing toe warmers next time.

You think 6 is bad? I was there from 4:30! I inched my way up to the barricade also, got there - and held my place for over 5 hours! No bathroom breaks and free redbull was torture

So much fun though, yeah definitely need toe warmers. Too bad the event was not held this weekend, temps in the mid-40s! Lol.

People came out from all over the place. A couple of guys I met came up all the way from Baltimore to check this event out (they left early to catch the bus back home).

Such an amazing experience overall. Can't wait for next year. I hope Rice takes it next time. I felt so bad for him, he was killing it at practice; everyone kept falling down but his landings were solid.

You're a trooper!
They were handing out some coconut water concoction down the block from the event, and then handed out red bull just to torture you lol. Perhaps hot beverages would've been more appropriate.

Yea I was telling my friend that they should've waited till Saturday for the 40+ weather! Would've been so much better but probably even more crowded. I heard people in back of me saying they had to leave to go do their physics homework lol.

I hope Rice takes it too next time. He deserved to get it with all the shit he was pulling. Really sux he couldn't finish the landings.

Yeah, that's what I told him

He's a pretty cool guy btw, really laid back. In person he's actually really cute!
I'll post the pics when I get home tonight, currently on a college pc, hehe.

The Redbull was crazy, I'm surprised it wasn't frozen solid. I took 2 more cans home with me (one of which I drank this morning). Going to pee in the port-a-pottie afterwards was the best feeling ever. Especially since there were no lines

How far away are you from the city?

Yea? That's cool. Always nice when they're not arrogant assholes lol.
I'm 45 mins from the city on the metro north train. Not bad at all. Driving is pretty much the same with traffic and all. But, I try not to drive there unless I absolutely have to.
