Sneak peak: Giant pump sesh #1

Last night’s Giant Bicycles pump-athon at the Keystone Stables rocked! Expect a full report after Thursday’s session. For now:

Giant is having its 2010 dealer event at Keystone. Last night’s entertainment was cowboy grub and Pump Track Nation.

Photos and video grabs courtesy of my brother in law, Dvon Barlow. Thanks man!

Giant pro Heath Pinter manuals the back straight. The guy in the jersey … that’s Perry Kramer, the P.K. in P.K. Ripper.

Emily seems to show up everywhere. Hey kids, wear your helmets.

Jake is Giant’s corporate photographer. A good rider and good dude. Here he tries an alternate line in the big 180.

This section has nice flow, which makes big smiles.

You can RAIL this turn! I rarely get aggressive with a strange bike, but the new STP feels great.

Heath finesses the left/right transition.

Sweet! Sorry about the low-res video grab.

MTB legend Jeff Lenosky shows us how it’s done.

Heath with some sweet BMX style. Heath sessioning a BIG jump.

People were asking me, “Did you mean to ride the red line?” Yikes. No.

Soon after this photo was made, I was asked to stow the P.3 and ride a Giant. I spent good time on an STP, a Method 24 and a Method 20, and they were all very nice. More details to come.

More pump track love on Thursday. Stay tuned.
