Progression
#1
Mark and Myself rode at Swinley today and finally did a drop off that we have been wanting to do for a long time now.

About a year and a half ago we had our first ride at Swinley, we were able to some small 3ft drops and averge jumps on the jump gully.

There is this one area that has a 3ft drop and another 7ft drop to the right of it, in July 08 i fell on the 3ft drop and broke my shoulder. Ever since we have been learning to do bigger drops and have wanted to go back and do the 7ft Drop a long time now. We dont go to swinley often and whenever we had we either had an important ride coming up (2412 / Wales) or we just didnt feel ready.

Today we did the drop (several times)

Im near 6ft with my helmet on

Video never does it justice....  I know the drop and remember standing atop it discussing, a while back, how you broke your shoulder there.  It looks waaaaay scarier in the flesh.

Well done guys ;D
