Just a few shots from last weekends race in Lethbridge Canada. Long story short, the local dealership gave me a older bike to race with as my race bike was in the process of a re-build with upgrades. The bike they gave me didn't start well and I had to push start it quite a few times...then the slave cylinder where the hydraulic clutch line goes into the engine was leaking so I was slowly leaking clutch fluid...resulting in an ever decreasing clutch function.
'
'
Made it through the qualifying race winning my class for gait pick at the main event...worked on the bike a bit but clutch con't to get worse.

Now the photos...the first couple are how you are supposed to jump more or less. The last group of photos...not so much! Unless you are on a trials bike

Now...this is what happens when you try to slip the clutch when it isn't working with only a few feet to go before having to jump a double

I would post a picture of my Left buttock cheek if it were allowed but as you can guess...it ain't pretty I landed about 12 feet in front of the last photo with my arse and left forearm taking the fall. Stay tuned for more carnage!

Best investment I ever made for gravity freeride MTB and would have used one back in the day when I was racing MX.
Stay safe man!
