Sea Otter Guinea Pig 17

Is there anything better than hitting a jump for the first time? Steve (aka Mike) Wentz guinea pigs the revised rhythm line at the top of the Sea Otter DH track. Truvativ sponsored the DH track rebuild and Steve is part of Momentum Trail Concepts, the team re-doing the track. If you build it, you get to hit it. To answer all your questions...yes, he eventually made it and the jump works great. Pure comedy on this first attempt though!

    15 second commercial for a 9 second video, sounds about right these days.

    I think I saw a guy do that in a kung fu movie once... then he ran across the roofs of several houses while sword fighting.

    You mean Mike's brother or something? He's gotta be better than Mike. That guy makes one jump into two jumps. That's just not safe!

    Strange looking step-on-step-off, but hey, whatever works!

    Wentz is completely capable at testing anything new. That guy rips.

    They really need to get some better riders to test this stuff out. If that guy Mike had gone over the bars and gotten hurt, he could have sued the nice people who built those jumps.

    i think the ambient sound of the crickets chirping is almost as good as wentz's nose case.
