Lens compression. That is just a real big guy riding a real big bike on the hill.

Just got back from the 'dilla. As always it's a hell of a show. They added a jump beyond the turn after the gravity cavity. I'm sure you will see a lot of photos from it. They did make some more changes, but it still is a tough flowing track. I'm still amazed at how many people start leaving after the second 450 moto. I was exhausted after getting there at 7:30am. I was also impresed at how the guys at the Grand Slam camp ground can yell "UNAFUCKINGDILLA" at the top of their lungs for 30+ minutes straight at 1 in the morning.

another national in the books. since my return to Unadilla in 2009 after a 28 year absence, I hadn't yet been back to the Screw You. Screw You is a very steep downhill with a U turn at the bottom and right back up the same damn hill. As with any epic part of any epic track, most of the time video and still photography can't capture the real thing. Screw You falls into that category - this freaking hill is steep.

There is a little lip at the top of the downhill so most launch it a tad but most come about less than 1/3 of air time.

Eli Freaking Tomac

Was jumping more than 1/2 way down it. Every time. I'd like to know what's in his forks and what kind of brakes he has cos it ain't freaking possible to do that.

That boy can ride. 3rd picture is him. Again. this hill is STEEP.

While everybody is still boned up from Unadilla (I'm presently at half mast), I'll put this out so you can get ready for an interesting track in Utah.
Yous spectators better bring some goggles cuz its going to be dusty.

If one bike can put up that much dust I can't wait to see the start when 40 bikes hit the first turn. Anything farther back than 3rd place will have no way to see where they're going.

Another outdoor SX track.
