Apparently this was a planned way to descend.

The better a racer is, the more they can get away with **** like this.

Man, it would have been a genuinely good idea in one section of the state champs this year.

Dude, I did almost exactly that, 6 times, in yesterday's cross race.  There was a super steep, muddy descent that ended in a sharp left turn.  I managed to glissade down on my feet on every lap.  XC ski skills FTW.  I hope somebody got a photo.

No photos of the slide-down, but here's some of what we had to deal with on the course.

That big pipe is a great way to handle the proliferation of show boatin' bunny hoppery.

I'm not 100% convinced I couldn't have collapsed it in the middle with my super dense bones, though.

Soooooooo cold today.

Broke my Smith glasses so I've got to wear these Knockarounds for now. It's whatever.

I think we would have been better off with skis! Except in the muddy parts.
