I think that is something I could get into watching. I don't think we have a hill here in South Jersey. But the swamp is realy full with all the rain we had this year, it was running over the roads in some places last week.
Keep following your local countrymen. Steve Peat being one of them and a World Champ! He had that coming a long time ago and I'm so stoked he finally got what he deserved in Australia!
Anyhow, I don't 'race' per-say in sanctioned events, but I do ride DH recreationally in Colorado, New Mexico, and New York. However, I live in Texas and so I tend to focus on FR on trails my friends and I have built using ideas from Vancouver's North Shore style of ladder bridges and natural drops. Its a blast and I highly recommend it!
