Ask me about Piriformis syndrome
No GoPros allowed in race runs unfortunately. Felix took some early Thursday practice, then his new helmet arrived, and didn’t have a mount for it. I’m sure others will have some human footage floating around.
I've ridden some of the bright dh track, but it mostly seemed closed and unused when I was there. It's a steep fucker and a lot of the guys I know from around here that race/d rate it because of the physical challenge it presents. I'm with @Dozer though - it isn't my style of trail. I like big banks and jumps more than ruts, rocks and roots. The old coramba trail was my style.
Dry and dusty isn't too typical here, we get thick forest kind of stuff but it isn't too varied from the Bright course, just got a lot more features and items of interest.
Aussies deserve a much better organisation to get the racing done, the system just fucks us.I think you’re seeing the glass as half empty...but I still love you
I likes me a double dose of those, but the coramba trail was a long way from either. The constant off camber chunder is the deal breaker. The 2 main dh tracks here (Awaba and Ourimbah) both have their share of lumps and bumps (not enough at Ourimbah for some) but it is contrasted at both tracks by fast sections for raising and an assortment of jump from small to fuck no in size. The guys smashing top times on that bright trail must have some impressive vice grip!That’s slopestyle/park you’re after then
Wikileaks was a good idea ruined by Assange’s ego and lack of moral compass. If you were to judge the world based on his target set you’d think that western countries are a scourge on the earth and Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, etc are moral beacons for global society.In the very early days, I actually thought he was trying to do a good thing for the right reasons.
I changed my mind pretty quickly. He’s a bit like Ned Kelly in Australia. The mythology and hype around his virtue is 99% bullshit.
He would have more of a chance if he was a Chelsea ManningSimilar story here. He's no Edward Snowden, that's for sure. That said, they are literally charging him with possibly rendering assistance in cracking a password, and have not revealed any evidence that, you know, it actually contributed. This is hugely weak sauce on which to base an extradition request, and I reckon Assange has a strong chance of winning his extradition fight.
