Are you sure these pics are on the Whoops on north side of Bridges?  It doesn't look like the big whoops.  I dind't think Greg was riding the big drops yet.  If he, is that is great!!!

BTW, that one rider that is bunny hoppin in had a web cam and was video taping everything.  He is at the bottom of the drop filming you on that last picture.  He got me jumping and wipping out on North Creek.  He game his email so we can see some of the video.  If he replies, I'll post it here.

Yeah, cool pictures!

Looks like the final drop out (with the tree) just before the double track across from Franks Loop / River Loop Junction?

that camera takes a bunch of frames per second so it is easy to get some good shots.  there might be 20 bad shots to every good one...thank goodness for the digital age...i couldn't imagine paying for that much film

So there WAS someone filming people jumping on NCT? I could have sworn someone was taking pictures or something but I was keeping my eyes on where I was going.... I catch enough air on that one little jump in the middle to land on the face of the next "bump" after it. Eventually I hope to land on the other side of that little bump....

with all those rapid flashes going off it is like being on a roller coaster at universal studios
