Thumbs up Our last riding of the year (pics)

My boy was released from the orthopedic on Friday so we snuck in our last riding of the season. We took a trip up north to Granite Peak in WI our largest hill with lots of terrain parks. Our local hill closed today as well.

It started off rough, my boy that had the broken wrist thought he could just pick up after 2 months off where he left off. Didn't work that way and his frustration grew rapidly and quickly. We got into the grove after a few hours and we had a blast.

I rode many features that we don't have at our local park. It didn't all go smoothly for me. I thought I could get away without using my impact shorts, bad idea. I'm not that good and a 5 minute break to the car would have been the wise choice.

Here are some of the boxes I rode, I forgot to take pics of the rail. Might not be much for many of our fellow members, but I was very happy to be able to ride in control on these.

The 1st feature from the drop in ramp, an up-flat box

a up-flat-down box

a flat-up-flat box

I almost forgot about this large butter box(that's one of my boys on it. This box taught me how to respect body position to ALWAYS stay perpendicular to the feature, I have the bruises to prove it, looked so simple too.

There was also a longer I'm guessing 20'-30' flat box I hit. I never rode anything that far before. My 1st attempt I scrubbed to much speed and stalled 10' from the end.
One of the other parks had some ride on rails that I enjoyed but didn't get pics of.
The ollie'ing onto a corrugated tube was a complete failure. I can't ollie yet so after many failed attempts I felt it best to try other freatures.

thanks to all my fellow members for the tips, encouragement, and advice over the season. I was able to progress and ride with my boys all season. Look forward to next year already.
