I Got This

We came to a super-tight downhill switchback. We all stopped. We pondered. I said, "I can totally ride this. Get the camera."

You gotta make the animated .gif your twitter icon.

People love that.

I'm still laughing. Look, even JB is laughing at you.

Ahh, the dreaded high sider. I bet it was even funnier in person.

Please don't get your PRO license cause then you won't be able to post awesomeness like this anymore.

Star Gap? Or do all those WNC switchbacks look the same.

ORAMM in July?

I really wish I had a picture of how much skin I took of my leg while sliding down a hillside of shale after this crash.

Brian: yep, that's the tightest switchback on Star Gap.

After riding up Curtis Creek Rd when it was 80 degrees and humid in April, I have trouble getting excited to do that ride in late July at ORAMM. But it's not totally out of the question...

Ooh, watching my son get hurt in slow motion and fast motion. Love it.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo! A bit of tequila would have done wonders to calm you down after that experience.
Where is Star Gap exactly?

Star Gap is in Pisgah National Forest, near Asheville NC. I'll have a longer report up soon.
