Bad lines, good times. Today, Ty took Sean and me up this rain canyon in the Angeles Forest. After Ty rode the entire thing with ease, it was my turn – Sean opted out – so he stood back and watched me have at it.

This one of those moments where you say “that’s a bad place to plant my front wheel”, as your wheel slides out and you go over the bars.

      Not bad. Scraped skin.

    What trail is this?

    There is something almost comforting and purely terrifying at just that moment when you say to yourself, “Yep, I’m going over the bars now.” And there’s nothing more you can do.

    Hahaha, great timing on that one!
