Pah, I could do that on my mum's Shopper Twenty.


Seriously though, DH scares the bejesus out of me, I can do quick on fire road but all the drop off and doubles stuff just spells PAIN to me. :(

Do you have to have your brain removed before the start? I'm still feeling a bit queasy after some of those jumps into what appears to be thin air!

I wonder how many riders crashed or fell off the raised bits.

Also watch the clip where he follows another rider, slightly different course but just as pant-browning! Well, to me at any rate.

Must have bull- sized gonads :!: :!:
