My last Oregon ride. (for a while)

I did my last ride for who knows how long with the guys I've been riding with for around 4 years. It was a good time and we sessioned the E.T. jump for a while. I love that one. Faster the better. It was my 2nd ride on the Cliff Cat and I'm liking it for sure. I'm going to switch the monster for the shiver and then she'll be good. A highlite of the day was when a guy cased a jump bigtime a tore the cleats off his shoes. They were still in the pedals. That was so funny. Why was he freeriding with clipless pedals? I don't know. On our last run we did a non stunt trail. DH single track with good flow. I was in the lead and East Coast Eric was chasing with everyone else behind. I really felt on the edge. Drifting some of the corners in the mud. It was good. When it came to the steep part there was a lot of down branches and a few trees. We had just went through a short rock section when i really opened her up. It was a long straight away so i was really going fast when i clipped a pedal on a rock. Wow! i hadn't flew off the bike so far in a while. Face first into rocks and branches. When i figured out i was ok Eric and i started really cracking up. Where's my helmet cam when i need it. Just about tore my pedal off though. Great day as usual.
and thanks to Jamie,Terry,Casey,Eric, Jim, and the other guys for riding hard. I'll be back.
