Above the VW up the hill was that insane road gap. Well about 100 feet to the left (looking downhill) was another larger road gap in that power line trail. This is the one that Duffy hit. The smaller one Pat and I hit was down the hill from that one. One thing I didn't get to do was try the VW again. We spent to much time playing on the jumps. I really wanted to clear that stunt in the other direction which is much harder.
    I noticed a bunch of hits along the powerlines on my way back. We have to give Nepaug some more attention next season. I love Nass but I think I've seen 80%+ of what's there. It's cool to ride a new area and Nepaug is only another 5 or 10 minutes for me.

    I ski double black diamonds.

    There is much more to Nepaug then we thought.

    That one is fun...I think it's considered more of a step-up than a gap?? I don't know, that's what the guys were calling it.

    The difference on this one is that there's no VOID in between the jump and the landing...if you come up short it's all right.

    Definitely want to hit this, as you saw I am more of a pedaler than a stunt rider.

    Gap jumps and a VW? I would liked to have witnessed some of that radness.

    Good to hear no one got hurt. It's getting a little too close to ski season for any of that business.

    If you come up short or long on that one you are ok. Land with your front tire into the step and its not so cool.

    The big reason I am happy about hitting that one is that the lip was pretty steep and throws you up. I have always had an issue on jumps like that. I prefer ones like on Deli slicer that throw you more out than up. But that first that one DS at the bottom of the hill does throw you up more than the other 3.

    I'd agree with that assesment. Way back, and i wont use this reference anymore, but when i was racing motocross that wouldve been considered a step up. there is no penalty for not clearing it.

    yeah, i keep telling myself that too. a split second longer at the top of the roller i did wouldve been disastorous. i hit my rear brakes too hard on the approach and started to get sideways. it wouldve been about 8 or 9 feet of near vertical down a rock face on my side. one of the guys congratulated me for doing it then immediately started giving me a tutorial on how to use my FRONT brakes.
