GoPro Hero 3 footage from the 7th and final stage of the first round of the Big Mountain Enduro series at Snowmass, featuring the Bonsai DH trail. As usual, the camera does not do the course justice; very steep in spots. My time was good enough for 8th fastest in the Pro division, about 10 seconds off the time of stage-winner Brian Buell.

After ending day 1 at the Keystone round of the Big Mountain Enduro series in 10th spot, day 2 got started with a 6th on stage 4; effectively moving me into 7th spot overall. Stage 5 didn't go so smoothly. A small front-end push in a berm resulted in a slightly misdirected trajectory off the step down on Milky Way. The 6x6s that lined the landing then removed the lower portion of my derailleur and, with it, any chance of my best result ever. I continued chainless, and it turned out to be a very entertaining run, albeit not what I had hoped for.
