    Video Nassahegan - RAW - 2009-06-16

    Great ride tonight!!

    After the all the rain we have had lately it was great to get back into the woods and roll. I'll let some one else give the play by play while I work on the video! Yes that's right, got some sweet video.

    While you wait here's the track data from the ride.

    Great to meet Chris and Pat, hook up with Brian once again (this time without a broken frame) and finally get a chance to ride with you Greg.



    Alright back to the video........

    Glad to see we broke the 6 mile mark with the additional fumbling around the jail. Tim? I think you mean Pat, but they do kinda look alike. Definitely great to ride with you too Jon. Hop in on a ride with us anytime. Thanks for the post-ride brew!

    Can't wait to see the vid. Some nice smooth drops by 2knees and some scary landings as well. You can skip the footage of the lameness that was me climbing that stupid slab...
    I ski double black diamonds.

    Good ride, a little scatter brained at the end, but good. We didn't get over to the kitchen like Greg originally planned, sorry dude. It was fun watching Pat huck shit. Even better that he didn't break himself, though he did go down a couple of times. The trails were in overall good shape, but the rocks and wood was a little slick, a few patches of light mud here and there. We did our typical loop on the east side, skipping the lowest part for fear of it being too wet. We ended with the fun trail with the ladder rollers and small dirt jumps, were Pat made an impressive huck look easy. Then we dropped off Grassi and Pat and did a little loop up on the east side, through some stuff we had already ridden, popped back out on Stone and went poking around on the west side. It was getting dark so we didn't want to venture too far. Called it a night with some nice brews in the lot afterward, thanks woodcore!

    Good to see Grassi out on a bike again finally, Pat; you were riding well, stop pussing out on the hills and you'll kicking my ass all over the place. Nice to ride with woodcore again, I hope you can make more of our rides. Greg; a pleasure as always.

    Can't wait to see the video!

    Chris has picked right up where he left off. He was jamming on some of the hills. Seems like he only quit on the climbs when he saw Pat do it. Embrace the misery, fellas! You just might learn to love it. The climbing addiction is kinda weird like that.

    Anyway, big props also to Chris for tackling some of the ladder roller things. Nice aggressive riding. Pat - you just got that drop thing down. Threading the needle to line up (well 2 out of the 3 times ) on that drop bellow the ladder-rock-ladder was impressive. You usually just land them so smooth. I'll say it again, someday when you get on a real bike, it's gonna be nuts to watch.

    Can't wait to see the carnage. Props to Pat. He is my idol.

    Good time tonight minus the OTB at the end. Nice meeting you Wood.

    Nice to meet you woodcore. Had fun riding today. I mean the trail riding. I was really enjoying it, even the climbs, as far as i could go. Probably pushed my luck going for that bigger huck the 3rd time, the landings were rough and i just didnt pull it off the last time. could've done without the stupid crash on the dirt jumps too but oh well. cant wait to get out again, although my knee is a bit sore from having my leg bent all the way back.

    the bike is holding up though.

    When I first read that I thought you were talking to the small trees that you OTB'd into.
