in local lil 'ol Wanaka news........read the artical b4 ya read my rant.....
now all this coming from a kid who hardly never ever digs @ Lismore (he's not the only one either), i'd like to see your re-build plans, yes he kicks ass on his bike for sure there's no doubt about that, don't get me wrong either good on 'em for doing well at the NZ (MTB) Dirt Jump (not) Open, there's always gonna be the DIGGERS & the RIDERS, an it ain't about wheel size either but more about "principles/etiquette! Lismore's like a co-op, we all ride it so we should all help keep it running sweet! So along with a few other local lads i to thought it was amusingly interesting seeing this in the local paper today (most people in this town have no idea what dirt jumping/trails are an wet their pants seeing Lismore) Elmo sure was getting plenty a height a couple nights back in Lismore, I think right now tho he's just dug a hole for himself, time to for us diggers to get wowed by your diggin skills, good luck getting outta this one. I hear wood chip piles are fun?
hang'in & rolling trails, dubs, dirtjumps, piles a dirt is all about having a goodtime & in Wanaka Lismore has slowly helped unite the riders here who enjoy jumping bikes over piles a dirt, Lismore keeps us happy & we can roll all year round pretty much yup were soo lucky. I can definitely think of better jumps/trails i'd rather ride, but Lismore is better than nothing at all, right? Ya gotta thank Dan for that! I'm old, i have no idea, i dig to much, my back hurts haha & i only just found out that dirt jumping was all about tricks on MTB's in the air....hang on, wait a minute dudes have been jumping bicycles over piles a dirt for over 30 years mang hahaha it ain't NEW here or anywhere else in the world.
Pete doing a trick at lismore, i hope it counts cos it ain't a backflip, one word "ADAPTABILITY" is what makes a good rider, being able to go anywhere, ride anything, do a stunt or 2 & have a goodtime!
Yeah Lismore still needs to progress/grow more & can always do with more dialing in that's what, how it always is at trails & winters all about (3 weeks till Dan get's a loader to fix the big stuff) getting that stuff sorted, ya just gotta remember it's a public park so safty 1st it'll never look like Catty (imagine that), yes the Gorge is rad & public but built by someone else, thats the cool thing about trails they are all different because of the people who create them, that's obvious. 6 dudes (men) have been working alot in Lismore over the past 2 weeks an Elmo's not one of them i am, no ones getting paid to dig it's purely for the love of it. So keep on having fun at our expense, it's our free time too, if you can't trick the jumps boo hoo go build some trickable jumps somewhere else or just enjoy yaself & have fun......it's hard to please everyone & there's always gonna be politics, gay & hilarious all at the same time at public dubs/jumps/trails/piles a dirt.
old washed up riders like me can do tricks at lismore or is it just easier to do tricks on a BMX get serious the bigger the wheels the more stable the flight! FACT! Try a day a NO TRICKS (tabo's ain't tricks they're just timeless HA!)
Time to get a foam pit dude the Gorge is shut for winter & expect some heckling next time i see ya "your not ever gonna get high enough at Lismore, unless ya smoke a spliff, i don't no why ya even ride here you can't learn tricks" hahahha! Here's some food for thought kiwi kids...."How many towns in New Zealand are lucky enough to have public jump parks"...not many, so be thankful with what ya got dudes or start ya own dubs! There's a few to many spoilt rich smart ass lazy little ratty Wanaka kids that ride Lismore (OUCH), tooo much is handed to ya on a platter...start earning it,trails ain't about a free ride! Help out & dig more, see ya at Lismore . Reporters need to do their home isn't that what reporters are mean't to do?
so leave a comment or read the comments/ya own rant if ya got no life like me, keen to hear other peeps thoughts on this, cheers Jimmy
