Get froggy

with

the

DIRT JUMPERS

 

Cort from the dirt riders is going to teach a small group of us that want to learn some more technical skills like drops and jumps out in Santa Cruz.  We'll meet at the same place the Rincon/UC/Wilder rides start and head out from there.  This is a skills day more than a ride so expect to be out for several hours and not really cover a ton of distance.  The group is going to be kept small so if you're interested and are a STRONG INTERMEDIATE level rider sign up quickly.

 

It should go without saying but you need a helmet for this (and any other SJMTB) ride.  I would say if you should probably pad up too.  I'll be on flats for the first time in a long time so it's going to be very interesting.  I'm super stoked though and you should be too. I've been skittish since my crashes last year left me a bit broken, but it's spring and time to get over it.

 

I'll see you out there on the trails,

David

      I think eventually, though I think pacifica is becoming the locale of choice for jump school.

    I don't think my arm is going to be able to take it, so I'm going to open my spot up. If you guys are out there until noon-ish I'll ride over from Wilder or something and say hi.

    This is going to be a fun ride for anyone looking to work on a specific skill set. We will work on navigating technical steeps, jumps, drops, and other "more aggressive/DH" skills. I'll get there before 0800 and leave @ 0800 for one loop up pogonip and down sweetness. Anyone that wants to join for my warm up loop is welcome, but we'll be moving fast and not stopping. Everyone will meet in the Rincon lot @0900. There is a small jump spot for a warm up, then we will hit Z's for a bit practice. After that, we will work down Sweetness and session everything. After that, we will climb 15 turns and come down Sweetness full out. This is actually the best way to work a trail. 2x in a row. Once sessioning and once bombing. It should be a blast and a growth opportunity for everyone.

    Burgers and beers after @ The Burger in SC!

      If by growth you mean contusions and injury swelling, I'm so there!

    Totally. Bummed. Got a conflict so my spot's open. I'll see you all next time

    Cort, how much jumping do you think we'll be doing? I'm debating if I'm going to open my brand new stitches.

    June 2, 2013

    • Chris G.

      Hrm. This is a tough one. I'm debating opening my spot for someone just in case and riding over from Wilder.

      June 4, 2013

    • Chris G.

      Oops. Forgot to mention: I'm ok, just some stitches from Demo. Don't follow Fred down Braille, whatever you do ;)

    Would love to attend but I have other plans. Hopefully there'll be a next time.

    One Week! I'm giving everyone some homework:

    I want everyone to think about their riding abilities. Where are you strong, where are you weak, and what do you want to work on? Please know the answers to these questions before showing up on Sunday. Give it some serious thought. We will have a pretty large group and this will help things to move smoothly. If you are a strong rider. And you guys know who you are! I will be asking you to help with the coaching.

    David, can you open a wait list?

    2 · May 14, 2013

  • Fredric

    Oh what?!? Waiting list already!!!

    May 14, 2013

    • Cort

      David might kick you out for joining another club ;-P

      Well then it won't be completely official unless its followed by a vulgar email. Lol

    Should I bring the dual suspension or the dirt jump hardtail (it has a few gears for climbing but not too many).
    Assuming people drop, of course :)

    You can start practice dropping by changing RSVP to "No" and drop off the list :)

  • Christo

    I wanna go too! ..waitlist? Maybe if I help, it'll lighten the load on Cort so we can have more than eight(?)

    May 14, 2013

    • David

      May 14, 2013

    • David
