Long time no push...

Some shots from last Saturday (where do the day's disappear?) when we had a push-bike session in the near by hill of Högberget.

First trail was a new one for me, there was one DH-race here when we held a small DH-competition cup, I apparently missed this one back then.

Inspection of the course:
It had been raining all morning but now the sun was shining and the temperature was rising!
First run, the rocks were slippery!
Mathias on his almost brand new YT Industries DH-bike.
Ryddan passed me next.
Mathias had a close encounter with the rock further down, the RS Boxxer took most of the blow.
We decided to explore more trails, one just next to the first one.
The camera wasn't fast enough in the bad light in the forest.
Not overly steep but still fun.
Had forgot how hard it was to push the bike up hill! After a few runs we yet again moved a few hundred meters to the next trail, as we were heading up we bumped into e., who were out ripping on his own and he showed us the trail he and another fellow had built.

Checking the double drop.
Without people in the way.
Hard to believe there's big apartment houses just a stone throw away.
I managed to flat my front tire twice, run out of spare tubes as it turned out that the brand new tube I had was repaired!? Hard to believe but that's the only explanation, must remember to document the patch that was on and that let out all the air...

E. making the last jump.
Ryddan seems to have as bad speed as I did over the obstacle, I lost speed in a bad turn.
It was a nice session, must go back and practice at the track again, I was all but supple down the trails, really need more speed runs before the Åre week, hopefully I get a free start in the Mega-Avalanche!

Funny looking GPS-plot:

  2. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me dinner simply because I found it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this issue here on your web site.

  3. I drop a comment each time I like a post on a site or if I
    have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.

    Usually it's a result of the passion displayed in the post I read. And on this post "Long time no push...". I was moved enough to drop a thought ;-) I actually do have some questions for you if it's okay.
    Is it only me or do some of the remarks come across like they are written by brain
    dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites,
    I would like to follow you. Would you list the complete urls of all your community
    pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
