    A video of me practicing in my back yard. This is mostly just to show off the widescreen feature I recently discovered in my camera, and is a taste of what you can expect in the near future (minus all the crappy riding, of course).

    Also: I will up seven skids shortly! I would ride now, except for that I'm sick as heeeell.

    Pretty good vid, it's a high pedal up!! But I really dislike those moves to bash they make me cringe.

    Otherwise riding wa good.

    Haha yes I know. I rarely ever use bashguard. I'm not entirely sure why I bashguarded 6 skids. I was warming up maybe? After watching this video I have come to realize that it doesn't look like I put any effort into that gap up, and could probably do it without bashguard if I tried it a couple times.

    This is the problem with skids: I can do 6 easily. Very easily. I up bar height every time, but 7 skids is just a weeeee bit too high for the next step (especially going from 6 to 7). I'm sure if I was upping 6, then 6 and 1/2, and then 7, I could do seven.
    It's just a big jump from 6-7. stupid pedal ups.

    a tap is when you hit the front wheel near the top of the object as you pedalup. makes you shoot upwards a bit more.

    don't be afraid of going a little faster towards those 7 pallets, you're nearly there!
    go faster, give a bit more oomph and spin those pedals a bit faster to get the bike up there quicker.
