I think I just came up with a good idea for those kinds of parents. There should be a special race for them. I will supply them with bikes gear and anything else they would need. Line them up on the gate and let them go. When they get to the monster jump I will chase after them and see how many of them I can (brake check, T-bone, and just a give a big old pimp in the turn). This would be good training for me to get ready for the GrandÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s and Worlds. You think Vinnie would go for this?
i think the other thing that the kids say they would like to change about that jump is not the distance peak to peak its the closeness of the landing into the turn.. maybe if they hadnt made it so close giving the rider more “recovery” time from the jump??
just a thought and what i heard kids saying last yr at the ironman race… you need bigger/more challenging jumps to help the kids stay competitive but also make it safe.( not like so park though) thats great that the older experts have input and i think most of the people here on this topic would help out if asked.
im sure vinny will take all your suggestions to heart
