Doll Ridge Dump

Sorry for the delay, ladies and gents, but yours truly accidentally bought a couple rolls of Slide film which had to been sent out for development. These are the highly anticipated photos from the Doll Ridge ride a couple of weeks back. It doesn't get much more technical than this. Sure, these aren't the biggest moves, but this is more finesse than just throwing your bike off a boulder. There are many short bursts of power immediately followed by intricate wheel placement, and like a good chess player, always looking several moves ahead.

Welcome to Doll Ridge...



Typical terrain. Tall plates, too close to ride between...




Typical expression on the ridge...





Sue charging on the 5 Spot...




Big move. Not a drop but throwing it up and over. Big hole on the low side. Tim makes it look pretty...




Collin, same move. Note the facial expression as he heads for the hole...




Tim pops from plate to plate...




Collin on some exposed spiny goodness. Yes, that is the trail...




Collin get some on Maneka as the sun sets...



Cant wait to get back there again...

  1. Nice pics. Sorry we missed you last weekend. I forgot there is no coverage in the valley. We'll plan better next time.
