More Winterberg...

Ed Von Schleck just sent me a big ZIP file full of photos he took during Wednesday's riding session at Winterberg bike park - big thanks Ed!

I'll let the photos do the talking...


John, Rob and Ed's brother training the DH track



Expert hip line in the Slopestyle park



Session on the timber jumps in the SS park



Boosting off the timber jumps in the SS area



Super tacky tires and concrete bowls = scary

Drop in the Funride area



Threading the skinnies before sending a big drop at the end



Watch those Syncros pedals!!



Pushing up in the SS park next to a casualty of war



Wallride sequence - natural direction

Looks awesome. Cant wait to see some video footage. How was the Wildcard? Jim @ freeborn has just convinced me to get one as my next bike.

Good to see those pictures on here. :-) I'm currently working on the video but it'll take a couple of days before it's done as it's my first time editing a video.

Cheers

Stephen, believe me the Wildcard performs beautifully in winterberg. I run mine in the short travel setup with a lyric at 115 up front and it does ride bloody fun. I even prefer the downhill on low travel for some reason. You won't be dissapointed when you get one for sure.

Stephen, I can confirm Sneecks statement! I´m loving my Wildcard so much and it is simply the right Bike for that and more ..
