That middle shot is great. Amazing to see a stop-action of the frame absorbing the landing. Look at the lefty blowing through its travel, and the deformation of the brake cable. Great photos. Painful crash.

Teflon Termie Terrorizes a Turner.

Crash sequence by Wind Stun.
LOL. We had a blast yesterday trying to huck everything in sight and that's one of the new ones that we found. It's steeper than it looks, with a really ugly roll-in... and to top it off you have to make a 90 degree turn within about 8 feet of the drop otherwise you go over the side of the hill. All three of us who attempted to huck it from that takeoff ended up going over the side because we'd blow the turn in the loose landing.

It didn't hurt at all though... just some sage brush action.

Our ride was quite a dropfest yesterday, with the highlight of Max doing a monster wheelie drop!

Click here or on the photo for LOTSA photos! (Warning: Ellsworth content :D)

Must be something about this drop:

Fun stuff... :)
Yeah, there is something and it's a 90 degree right hand turn about 8 horizontal feet beyond that takeoff. The laws of physics can't be denied!

Nice try though :)

Did I hear a gauntlet being thrown down???

He's a teenager and rides insanely well. Like I mentioned in a prior post, this isn't even his bike that he was riding... and he said it was sort of sketchy with the unbalanced front/rear travel (putting his front-center too far forward) but yet he was going for everything!

I think it really helps that his dad built him jumps and stunts in their yard! :D

Damn physics! :)

I *think* that it could eventually be done. You just have to flick the bike a little in the air to help get it turned, then hope to stay upright when you land, then take a strong pedal stroke to try and pivot the front end around the rest of the way... then pedal on Garth!

Ok, well at least it all sounds good in theory. :D

He makes that drop look easy, or is it that the Rogue makes that drop look easy! Either way nice photos and that is a scary arse drop too! No real run off other than blowing through the dirt road and falling down the other side. Several of my freinds have seen the brush and rocks down that embankment.

Great pics, you guys have large marbles.

This one really shows the impact at the bottom... Check out the chain and rear der. cable!

got compression?
I was gonna post that picture as well, but becasue of the chain, I love what's going on with it.

Another sweet compression photo is Max's rear only landing. (by the way, I can't say enough about how at ease he looks doing all that, and how much fun he's simply having)
