I think it's safe to say everyone is pretty amped to see these guys and USDH back in the starting gate, ready to cut loose after a very challenging year.

As Epictetus instructs us, โ€œOn the occasion of everyย event that befalls you,ย rememberย to turn to yourself and inquire what powerย youย have for turning it to use.โ€
.
.
So with all that has befallen us within the last year, let us see who has dug deep and went to work making lemonade, strengthening their constitution. Lights out and gates open on Sunday at @windrockbikepark. Let's show everyone why MTB was invented and originatedin the USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #USDH ๐ŸคŒ๐ŸคŒ๐ŸคŒ

Pics from Saturday are edited and ready for the taking. These are just some of my favs from the day. Forgive me for being a little rusty, been a while since I shot so the pics could have been better.

The entire set is up on my G-Drive cloud for the taking for those of you that want to browse the shots and download the full 45mp files. Anyone wanting to browse and download will have to DM their email so I can add you to the folder permissions.

I'll also be creating an email list as I try and grow the channel community from everyone that chooses to get the direct downloads. This will be specifically used to send out emails to the channel followers notifying everyone when I'll be going to the park to shoot, or even when I shoot local trails around the area. I've also been wanting to do giveaways and prizes as a benefit to whoever joins the email list for their support in 2021.

Finally, I'm going to give operation by donations a shot for the entire year of 2021. That means no charge for photos for the entire next year.

For anyone that would like to support the channel, it would be a great help and very appreciated:
Venmo: @the-local-shredder
Paypal: [email protected]

Shout outs will be given to my patrons and I will work in video shots for my highest giving supporters as a thank you in 2021.

Well, at least I got out there for one last day before the close. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ Didn't ride my bike once at the park all season! But it was totally worth it for the rad shots I got while I was there and no complaints either because I've been with my little girl and her momma these past few months. Super grateful to have a family ๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™‚๏ธ
.
.
Anyhow, I got there late but did manage to get some shots on Saturday and will be putting them up on the fb page soon for everyone, free of charge, naturally. ๐Ÿ˜
.

Hope everyone had a wonderful season full of progress, persobal goes achieved, adventures, new friends and old to carry with you until the next season.

Tire's off the wood, kid can scrub pretty good. @colinmulally looks to be a hungry young gun for not only racing but had a taste for fresh air. We had a rushed but decent run down the mountain at @mountaincreekbikepark to capture some first time snaps together.

HIP REPLACEMENT

Usually when these surgeries happen it seems like you gotta be careful on the new body parts. But you know how mountain bikers do it, #maximumeffort or none at all.
.

All kidding aside it was great to finally see this majestic sculpture in person and get a small taste of shooting it after the Thursday night races with some of the locals. Really looking forward to seeing what this inspires from everyone in the future, riders and photographers alike.

Had the pleasure of working with kindred spirit @joehulette again and his friend Josh for some shots at @mountaincreekbikepark . We didn't connect until the end of the day so some planned new locations didn't get covered but I think we got some cool ones on Covenant and then some at the Dominion proving grounds.
.

Stay tuned for some more.

When I want to know how to improve, I watch the quick guys and look at their body position and head/eyes in relation to where they are on the track as their doing the business. I love breaking down the body movements to show the process to help me understand and then attempt by duplication.

Another reminder to make sure you're taking care of yourself and your close ones, that you can help around you.

Very weird, troubling and hard times we're all living through right now so make sure to stay connected and talk with someone to get out of your own head to release the steam & pressure out of your head and chest. Share the load.

Remember feelings aren't facts and they pass, so hold on, hang tough and move a muscle/change a thought.

I think it's Serious Post time again.

As many of you know, I am an someone who is plagued by a whole array of mental health issues, and over the last few weeks I have been getting a lot worse.

Some of you may remember that I have talked about my experience with suicidality in the past, and honestly, right now I am terrified. It's gotten to the point where my life is controlled by fear. Fear of moving or doing anything or even leaving the house alone in case the mind gets hijacked by the disease which overwhelmingly strong inclinations to do damage to myself, and sometimes even others either as a cry for attention and help or simply to bring about permanent relief.

It feels like my entire life has stopped and the sole focus of my existence is to hold the beast inside me caged, I can't do anything else, I can't look away because if I do, it might break its cage, take control and bring about destruction. This beast is real, it's powerful, it's dangerous, and it's inside me, determined to kill me - but it's not me. Everyday has become a strained effort to fight for my life while every part of me is screaming "It's not worth it".
Last night I almost gave in, but thanks to the support of close friends and my amazing fiancรฉ, I reached out for help and my night only ended in handcuffs and a psychological intervention.

This is why I am going to step away from posting for some time as I battle through this, get the help I need and try to get better.

I pray that this will not be my last ever post, I wanted to share this with you guys to highlight the reality of mental illness and remind those struggling that you're not alone.

Literally crying now as I write this, please keep in mind that if you are struggling with similar things, there are many places you can reach out for help and to get support.

There are always people out there who care about and love you and me. These great people are the reason why we fight so hard to hold on when we see nothing of worth in our own lives.

We're warriors. We got this.
