    I wish that one was mine.. but Blake called it.

    So.. a little entertaining ADV backstory.. after Chris (87mcmahan87) posted that clip and it unexpectedly took off, he got a call from a the German equivalent of NBC, wanting to do a short interview and bio on him. Evidentially one of their execs is an action sports nut, saw the vid and put their US correspondent on the job. He was going to refuse, but then they offered to pay our way to GJ to ride so they could get more footage... which also happened to be the Snakebite enduro weekend. So we got a weekend of gas, food, nice hotel and race fees covered. :deal Somewhere on the net there's a 5 minute clip (condensed down from hours of filming) of his interview all dubbed in German.

    He actually hated doing the whole filming thing. Thought it was silly getting filmed for just riding skinny ridge.
