Rare Rain = Prime Pump Track


Hours and hours and hours of digging. Worth it.

 I'm lucky enough to have a place to dig. Or cursed. It's hard to say. Shaping dirt can become addictive. It rained over the weekend, which is a big deal here in AZ. Any significant rain is so rare that you have to go throw dirt when it's wet by nature. The rest of the time it's moon dust and hoses. We always have something in the works out here (like the rough line of jumps along the fence on the left) but there's plenty in prime riding condition. I probably should've dug more, but I couldn't resist some riding (because it rides best a little wet, too.) I also took a stab at some self portraits. Not super effective: Out of probably 50 shots I got a couple that were kinda cool. Fun anyway. Maybe someday I'll ride with someone who likes to stop and shoot photos as much as I do.

Remote shutter set on a ten-shot burst. I'd say I got lucky, but this was after a lot of trial and error!

Turns out my lips look like that in every picture. Like it's all gnarly and intense out there. And of course my finger is on my brake.
