Ya rip it

Name the author of that famous three word phrase. The first person to get it right (enter via comments) wins their choice of either an old Hutchinson Python UST or Conti GP4000 tire I have collecting dust in my garage.

Kris and I did our best to rip the Bobsled, dropping in twice to carve the burms and hit the smaller jumps. We drove up and left the car at the park on the intersection of Terrace Hills Dr and 11th Ave. Riding along 11th we jumped on the dirt at Dry Creek and rode over to Bobsled. Kris had never been down before and had so much fun we climbed up Terrace Hills Dr for another go. That climb sucks but passing a few groups of downhill riders pushing their bikes (after a shuttle to the top of the pavement I might add) provided motivation to keep the pedals turning.

Next time I ride I may pass on the climb up Dry Creek and do laps up Terrace Hills and down Bobsled instead. It took us 30 minutes to complete the loop so I figure at lunch I could get 2 runs in and if I was riding after work I could do 3 or 4. Pretty fun stuff.

Kris enters the Bobsled in style:

It may not look like much air but to a XC wimp like myself it felt pretty big!

I don't know if this is right, but is it Sly?

You are correct! Let me know which tire interests you. If the answer is neither don't worry, it won't hurt my feelings. :)

The answer was too easy, but the funny part is you could've given like 20 names and they'd all be correct.
