I used to downhill race when I used to ride a lot. I never really placed all that well, but I would have a good time. Nothing like going as fast as you can down a trail and not having to worry about someone around the next corner. There is also nothing like getting a shuttle to the top of the trail and doing many runs in a day 🙂
I’ve heard about urban DH races before, and I’ve seen a few pictures, but this video is unreal. Crazy fast, and insanely tight.
I’ve been following Explore Music’s Five Songs You Gotta Hear Today (RSS Link) for a while. Back in July they covered The Gracious Few. Take the most of the band Live, throw in the vocals from Candlebox, and crank it up a few notches. Here is the first single from The Gracious Few. Sounds awesome and I can’t wait for their debut album to be released.
