Show me some pictures of you doing some big drops offs..
Me, circa 1999, Buckland Rings in Lymington, riding an Orange Mr O.
My friend broke his femur riding this a few weeks later.
33 foot gap – great fun!
Buckland Rings is my old stomping ground!
I remember Steve Geall (sp?) riding both Oranges and a Spooky IIRC on those trails.
All the local kids (probably myself included) were gobsmacked at a “celebrity” from the pages of MBUK gracing our jumps… ha ha
For that gap in your picture, you needed to straight-line down the side of the quarry?Posted 3 years agosiwhiteSubscriber
Xiphon – that’s the one. You had to drop straight in from the top to clear that gap.
Was quite fun riding with Geally and some of his chums – I learned a lot from him. I remember when Steve got married – we were all mucking about at Buckland on the bikes the day before when Steve Peat just turned up and started riding.
I had the offer of a factory ride with Spooky, but it was the summer before I joined the Army so didn’t work out…Posted 3 years agohonourablegeorgeMember

looks big but do-able george, what is that height wise? ~4′ from woodwork to grass but 6-7′ to where your rear tyre landed?
Probably, yeah, think I made it about five feet from top of drop straight down, with the transition adding a bit, but it’s a nice smooth landing, the tricky bit is making sure you don’t overshoot it and land to flat – I was chatting with a bloke on the uplift who’d done exactly that and had the bruised to prove it.Posted 3 years ago
