I did, I feel like I really pushed myself today, no new tricks but definately stepped it up in the balls department. Nailed the wall ride(atleast in my mind) and picked some really good lines. I give most of the credit to my new RockStar Pro hubs which are much lighter than my old Tri-spokes that I have been sporting for years, but the fact that Im back to riding with a helmet has really improved my confidence.

So yeah, I effin ruled it today! If you did as well please tell us about it, in the meantime I'll be prepping up my stoke gland for milking.

MCarver busted some sick gaps today..... I hit the first 5 mile run and my tires were a little overinflated so I was hauling azzzz. Second run I let some air out had some more confidence and hit some decent drops and did some tricks that I haven't done before. All in all stoked for the day... Dying to get out manana but MCcarvers bunyon seems to be an issue so manana may be a no go. Would go ride alone but it's pretty sketchy without a buddy.. MCcarver pop that shit like your taint and lets get out early again feeling it right now. Wanna go out tonight but have no one to go with.....

Listen to me Parkerbomber. I got your head in a fuckin' vise. I'll squash your head like a fuckin' grapefruit if you don't tell me how to do that trick. Don't make me have to do this, please. Don't make me be a bad guy, come on.

I've seen Tom Kirkman do it in a video. You need to go up to a jump or something, before coming back down. I assume you can imagine the noseroll 360 in this configuration ? To do the 540, you pop off your nose and do a last 180.

It will always be impossible to do for me.

There is a sweet 360 noseroll in shralpdown I believe, thats the only one of those Ive seen. Hard to imagine someone pulling a 540 and having it look smooth.

Sounds more like a noseroll 360 to late 180 to me

Personally I would say if you are no longer "rolling on your nose" then the "nose roll" has officially ended.

i second that. I say a nose roll 360 is a 360 degree rotation all on the nose. What Brandon did was a nose roll to 360...or something like that. Sweet shot though.

nose roll 540's sound awesome! I've seen Mason do them occasionally, but that's about it.

Last weekend we rode Guardmans Pass in UT. Sweet dirt/gravel road that goes for miles! Nothing like riding full pressure with trucks all the way loosened down steep, winding dirt road to raise the balls! It starts to feel like snowboarding sometimes....
