OC Downhill MTBers

Sup guys.

New to the forum here. Saw a few threads on mountain biking already, but none of them seemed downhill specific. Looking for some more riders in Orange County to meet up with and shred trails together. Here are a few pics of my rig and some riding shots. (i shot the pics of the bike, my buddy did the action photo)

bike is a 2007 Norco Atomik. Pretty much fully modded and upgraded. Just recently wrecked hitting a ~30ft gap at Oakley. Still recovering from bruising and sprains, but hopefully will be back on the bike in another week or so.

edited update: recently purchased a Giant Glory0. fun bike!

i havent been up in a few months, had gallbladder surgery in september so im just getting back into the swing of this. if you enjoy telonics, you will enjoy this trail. the last drop is intimidating. but if ur riding telonics youd be able to shred this trail.

although its very short... and there is no shuttling at oakley, so prepare to do some mild uphill/walking back to the start section.

Got some style there. Nice I just picked up a glory from a friend. Downsized from a knolly podium since I dont get on the DH bike too much anymore. Ill hit you up if I head to telonics or if your ever in SD, let me know. I occasionally make it to skid marxs but that is a really long shuttle.
