Agreed. It's pretty much impossible to get the true perspective from the video. Quite honestly, I find it hard to believe that some of the stuff these guys do is humanly possible. I mean, who's the whack-job that originally said, "I want to build a 14"-wide elevated catwalk that we're going to ride our MTBs across, with jumps linking the catwalks." Nuts!

x2 However, if I rode my completely rigid MTB bike through that (assuming I'd only make it to, and possibly not past, the first jump), I'm sure I'd break my fork, my spine, and my melon all in one shot.

You want to get a small exposure to things like that there is:

- Ray's MTB park in the Cleveland area
- Burchfield park in Lansing

Burchfield? Serious? I worked there in the winter and didn't even know they had Mountain bike trails. I live like 2 miles from there. I might have to check it out....Of Course....If you were being serious.

Oh, and I'm a Young Fellow and wouldn't want to try that ever. That's just nuts.
