Only one place for me to go on a weekday on a SW. Good ol' toxic Wolf lake. Brian and I should be there riding around 3 or 4. I think the filming guy will be there too, but probably without a camera.

Lets ride hard!

Make sure the angle of tour straps/bindings is the same as your natural stance. Bad angle will cause major knee strain every time.

Stay safe and healthy

Great day yesterday. I was lit on my 15m. I could've switched down to my 9m but it was a bit too light in the lulls. It was nice seeing everyone ripping!!
