And there's a reason that 99.9% of us aren't pro's.

In this case, we had to start from a dead stop on a steep loose hill about 40' before the ledge. If the guy in front of me hadn't stopped at the obstacle, I would have been on the pegs with some momentum and cleaned it.
We don't stop riding because we get old, we get old because we stop riding.
