More of us got together around downtown Dallas again since everything natural was muddy from the snow we got, yeah, TX got snow, go figure.

Riders were:
1. Dustin Askins
2. JJ Daigle
3. Jeff Edgington
4. Seth Lee
5. Vern Martin
6. Stan Selejou


Stan Selejou warming up and surprising us with how much he's been practicing ups


Jeff Edgington riding a line through Pegasus Plaza (w/the usual "how do you do that?" onlooker)


Vern Martin riding a line through Pegasus Plaza


Jeff Edgington gapping


Jeff attempting to up these rocks and go off


Seth Lee upping and dropping from this rock from last week's photo of Patrick McNally doing the same (we hung out at this rock for a while, some good photos to be shot at it)


Seth Lee about to huck to rear wheel


Stan Sejelou pulling a no hander on the rock (ok, he was bailing)


Seth Lee


Jeff Edgington making an attempt


Stan Sejelou finally making it after a ton of determined attempts

What Seth Lee looks like when running from the cops (the same fountain gap to drop Patrick McNally hit last week, but with an officer trying to find something to bust us for, she was cool in the end)

It was a cool ride, look for more photos next week from TX.

really nice pics Dustin, I've noticed quite a big difference between last weeks photos and these. You're getting much better with that S330 :)

Austin great trials?? Maybe for some natural Yes they do. but for urban crap and that you wont get busted bt StateCops bc of riding on State Buildings, they tend to get really bitchy bout that. and there is nothing but state buildings. Plus riding the same place for the last 4 1/2 years tends to get old.

ah yes, the urban may be lacking a tad, but natural is great isn't it? hmmm... Places I miss:
Waterloo Park
Zilker Park
City Park
Shoal Creek
Lake Travis areas
Downtown (non-gov buildings)
There is a pretty big bmx scene in Austin, no? Where else do they ride besides 9th street jumps..

There is another place that I heard of off of 15th street, but the rumer has it that they are going to take down the 9th street jumps. even thoe damn things have been there for over 9 years that i know of. It's austin land and they say NOW that no one asked to use it for that and that if any one get hurt its against Austin.....like no one has eve been hurt there for the last 9years. Just one more reason to go urban on there damn state buildings.

Heh, I dig it a lot in one way since I finally have my own digital camera. But as far as quality goes, it's ok, I just needed something for a trip to Switzerland later this year. Looking into a better cam after that trip, one w/more manual options.
