    The local place to do that is Post Canyon, those people are all crazy. A co-worker separated his shoulder on one of these trails a year or so ago.. Will always be messed up.

    That is Brendan Fairclough, a world cup downhill rider, style for miles and balls of…… ah…. Carbon Fiber?


    He's being followed by Mauricio Taka Acuña whose camera is recording the event. Their names are given in this version on YouTube:
