OMGGGGGGGGGOOOOOOODDDD​DDDD. I still find it hard to believe that they do these stunts. Can you imagine being the first guy to try it? Awesome shots.

That's a great catch!

I can imagine being the first guy to crash & burn!

Thanks guys for all the nice comments.. I have about 30 really good shots but can only post 2 :(... There were 3 riders doing tricks. My first time every seeing them in person.. It was crazy.. But these guys make it look so easy I couldnt believe it. They were really relaxed and just acted like it was no big deal.. But so cool to see it in person.. Makes me want to go to the X Games now. Maybe next year. Thanks again..

You can post 8, but only attach 2. IMAGE POSTING RULES (READ BEFORE YOU POST!)

Mick.

actually it would be interesting haha. they do they repeatedly into GIANT foam pits untill they are landing them in the pit ... then they step up to trying the real thing...

i remember last winter travis pastrana did a DOUBLE BACKFLIP on his bike ... landed the thing on the first try ... it was CRAZY ... first flip wasnt bad then the second he redlined the engine to help spin him around ...


30D & 28-135 kit lens, 50mm F/1.8 MKII, monopod, tipod w/pan tilt head, 430EX w/ sto-fen omni bounce,

On the brown truck, due 10/26 ... 70-200 2.8L IS :D
