Default Road Gap jump I hit in my race run this weekend (sequence shot)

my buddy and my fiance and the kids and I went down to Snowshoe WV to race again this weekend.

Race report is pretty short, he crashed early in the day saturday and broke his hand. As usual it dumped buckets on saturday and we chose an ER visit for Xrays and beer over the miserable conditions. Sunday my fiance and I raced, both did well.

Anyway, here is a shot he took of me during my race run, I thought it was a pretty cool sequence.


Cup cake Gap for reference

This view sort of adds to the pucker factor you get when hitting the gap. You come from the left and have to turn last second to line up to hit the drop, but the landing is blind because its around the corner (From the run in) and it drops away so fast. In all reality this is one of the easiest and smoothest road gaps to hit and clear, once you get over the pucker factor. It's also high risk if you do mess it up, because when you land you have to immediately set up for a hard right into the woods, if you miss that turn its ugly.

It took me a long time to build up the balls to finally hit that gap. I followed a buddy off it last season so I knew how fast to go. Worst part is it is at the very top of the mountain, so you aren't really all warmed up and comfortable on the bike when you have to man up and hit it.

Blind jumps are scary. I don't even like hitting gaps on my dirt bike.

That is impressive! The pics do not do justice to the steepness. My wife and I have ridden at Snowshoe several times and it is amazingly difficult after the rain. I cannot imagine going at race pace!
