I wish that were true. I mean, who wants to ride with old creepy guys???

Seriously though, I wish my home mountain was an actual mountain lol.

I told wolfie that my goal next year is to meet up with him. I'm ready for that level of terrain!

Chomps, Chomps, Chomps....

I really wish you would have omitted the "black run" comment. It's Pine Knob. Their blacks are a joke even by Michigan standards and now everyone is dogging us.

Leo is right. We have steep shit here, it's just not a mile long or whatever like out west. We have cliff drops but they're not 50 feet high and there's nothing truly challenging (outside of park riding) unless you get up north and away from these Detroit area hills.

Anyways.

Chomps, kudos on your dedication and hard work. It's paying off. Next year we'll try and get you chasing us down the steeps up north.

Okay dammit. I'm going to embarrass myself to save Michigan's rep a little.

This is a typical blue run in Michigan, about 2 hours north of me. I was still learning to ride, I could ride blues but I wasn't aggressive yet so spare me the remarks on my slow speed or whatever.

You can see Leo zooming past me at about the 15 second mark from the left side of the frame.

This blue is steeper than the shitty blacks around Detroit and longer.

Seeing old vids is interesting because it's cool to see your progression when you're still a noob but it sucks in the same way that old yearbook photos are embarrassing. haha

Hey chomps, watched your 2 videos. I think you are good. You ride beautifully. Maybe you ride even better without the stage-fright of a camera behind you.

In regards to Leo and Sabatoa's vids', you guys definitely need to be out here on the west. That hill is like a longer version of our bunny hill ok, sorry just kidding. Chomps vid is cool too, and you ride pretty good, glad you guys are having fun.

I love that fucking run right there, one of my favorites locally. Although I hate that perpetual crowd of people to the right there where the two doubles let off...it's constant near-misses trying to navigate around that part of the hill.

Well now, I specifically said that the run was what "Passes" for a Black run in S.E. MI. I never made any claim that I was mastering some Uber difficult steep terrain! I mean, Fuck!! Are people who ride out west really That clueless as to the crap we have to make do with??? It's suburban Detroit for shit's sake!!

Anyway,.. maybe they'll like this run better! (...and before anybody gives me or MI riders any shit, IT AIN'T FUCKING MT. RAINIER!! OK?) It's on a short but fairly steep run @ Boyne Highlands! (...the steep part comes after the short catrack section!)

Was that a black? I kid. Looked fun and I'm pretty sure we're all just giving you a hard time to pull your leg. Trust me there are plenty of people riding in the Intermountain West and elsewhere who are not as good as you.
