Ice Ice Baby…
Freeriding can mean so many things. One of those things is riding your bike over sheet ice.
>complete with bodged slick tyres
Slick tyres and sheet ice, a combination made in hell.
Turned out it was fun to session even the most gentle slopes of black ice. 360 tricks and hand-plants ensued. Epic freeride. While Dave M was more into the tricks and stuff, i was more in it for the down hill. Having your rear wheel spin out, flipping the bike sideways to direction of motion is a sick kind of thrill, and i was lapping it up like a crack addict on, well crack.
When Dave says I was into the spins, I assume he was refering to my 360 degree double footplant spin to faceplant combination, which took place on an iced over incline with a suitable inpressed, crowd of onlookers. T’was Rad. Dave M
