Holy Cock!

That is some extreme canyon riding. Now I know why your knees and ankles must hate you. Very little margin of error on that course.

very littel margin of error in big mountain in general...

I have yet to make it to virgin to ride, but yeah....it is one of the most unforgiving courses of all time. My friend nick crashed early in the frist round,. and sprained both of his ankles. :/

here's another really gnarly wreck....not sure how cam is walking after that one.

Only if one survives!

I can't help but feel that something's just got to be missing (upstairs) for one to even contemplate such an event! OMG...

It's all about the rush,

some people crave it a lot more than others. I have to admit this stuff is quite dangerous, but these guys can ride!

Holy shit!

I have all the respect in the world for you now. It takes serious bag to launch yourself off of cliffs like that! Dude you Rock! That shit gives 'dropping in' whole new meaning.
