    I saw a video of BFR at Sycamore trail. I decided to try it last weekend. Haha, that drop it wasn't easy that I thought it'll be. I did the small one, not the big one.

    It's very intimidating. Next time I'll do it for sure. How many of you guys have done it?

    The images don't seem to really illustrate how steep it is in person. Everyone I've seen try it has rolled it okay.

    Much worse in person from the top. Have never seen a spill on THAT roller line, but the rocks and creek right there...that's another story. There are a bunch of fun lines that go all around that rock section.

    Done the small one. From the top they look completely vertical.

    It is not that bad. The big one on the fully look is much worse.

    Which one Gabe? BFR at least has great traction to control speed.

    You mean that stuff before the dh to Laguna Lake? Eh, I had no problem doing that stuff. BFR was a bit more frightening.
