I just saw this video of Jeremy Powers riding up the stairs and over the Barriers this weekend and I’m blown away. Obviously his skill is unbelievable, but what really strikes me is how creative he is with the lines he takes. Look at how far around the outside he goes, and how he manages to carry some momentum into the stairs.
When I hit these stairs, I did what EVERYONE else did and tepidly dismounted before scurrying up them. After seeing this video, I’m reminded NOT TO FOLLOW LINES. There are good lines out there that nobody else is using, it just takes some creativity to find them for yourself and reap the rewards.
