Snowy Gorpy Ridge Video

I have posted this in other threads but I thought Id share it with everyone.
My friend Chris is riding in Grand Junction last December on one of the skinny ridges after a snow storm.
He has spiked tires.
It is the only example of a go pro making footage look worse that I have seen.

enjoy

All I can say is WOW! The whole time I was trying to figure out just how far the bottom was and if you went off the trail would you stop before you tumbled to base.

Nice bit of video. You need some big balls, a good sense of balance and a total lack of agoraphobia to ride that I think.

The lens exaggerates the edge significantly, still an impressive feat.

Its go pro footage. Hes standing.

The only thing to smell is his oily exhaust.

Here is another report on ADV about the area posted 8 years ago!
Neduro dug this up on another thread.

I think the snow and moisture may have made the traction better.
