The Blue Clay Root Chopper Caught on Camera!

(updated: Mar 4, 2012)

Root chopper caught on camera...

Watch the shocking discovery.

If video above is no longer available, click here to play.

From here on out, I will also be known as Machete. That's pronounced Ma-chet-tay, like the main character in the highly entertaining Robert Rodriguez movie of the same name. And judging by my riding and crashing style, I could end up looking like Danny Trejo in a few years ... maybe a bald version of him, that is.

I guess that means I'll have to change the site to

Someone dumbed down his trails, and he's out for revenge in, Machete Kills Trail Weasels.

My what a big machete you have there.

I think I see what's happening, first he trips on a root while trying to get big air and crashes and burns. Then he is just mad and wants revenge on the roots. I think plenty of trees will be falling at BC soon if you look at the bases of the pine trees you will see sawdust from the beetles. Unless the infected trees are removed all will be dead soon. Natural log piles. How did the beetles get there?

How did you figure it out? Part of my diabolical plan is to infect all the pine trees with beetles ... providing an unstoppable supply of fresh logs for log piles. Nobody likes pine trees anyway.

I like pine trees. Especially when they drop those big, hard cones on my car roof.

According to my non-producible calculations, the average mountain biker of eastern North Carolina ingests 2lbs of pine pollen each year, and slips on pine straw an average of 21 times a season.
