Competitor in the back: “My tent!”
Best food is free food…
… in my day we didn’t HAVE helmets, or knee pads, or wrist guards or any of that fancy smancy stuff you kids wear today.
We took our lumps, and enjoyed it!!!
Yeah, but you didn’t have injury lawyer Chase R. Ambul in the area! That man is crazy!
I got started serious biking forty years ago; we already had all that stuff. ‘Course, the helmets were hot and weighed a ton, but I wore one anyway.
I like the ‘brains’ and ‘quit eating off the ground’… hehehehe Notice that nobody argued when Hubris announced everyone has to wear helmets? Makes you wonder if it was a sledgehammer-meets-watermelon type massacare of the crash test dummy down there.
Given how high up the hill the pieces flew back, it’s more like a possum-meets-woodchipper event.
I’m now curious about this hill. I’ve taken some nasty trails, but damn…
I don’t think possum would fly that far. Watermelon has nice hard seeds and rind… anyways. That hill, I think is the one we used to run our sleds down every winter… with a row of shelterbelt caragana trees at the end. The idea was to try to veer at the last minute and miss the trees… else you met them with your face.
“I don’t think possum would fly that far.”
The bony bits would.
The helmet they need..
Ludicrous speed, engage!!!
