Strawberry Ridge

Headed up to ride what we call the Strawberry Ridge loop w/ Brandon, Dan Z., and Dave G.  One of my favorite UC rides.  We managed to piss off plenty of men dressed in orange today.

If you have ever rode 5th water down (above the hot pots up Diamond Fork), you probably remember one tricky drop/move.  Here is a video from last year showing with Aaron S. showing how to ride it.

Today, Dave G. came flying down the trail not knowing the drop was there.  He almost pulled it off, but ultimately went over the bars.  It was a full-on yard sale on the trail.  I was lucky to get to see it, but should have brought the video cam. Dave busted off his visor, smashed up his helmet and drew some blood above the eye.

Thanks for the nod. I would have pooped my pants if I had hit that at full speed. Glad to see a smile on DG's face.

I forgot about that ride we did last year. Aaron is still the only rider I have seen to pull off that drop. But then again, not too many people come ride with me on that trail at 5am. Great ride.
