The one on the tech loop? I think it is labeled as a 3 foot drop, which I honestly thought would seem... bigger. I didn't have a tape measure handy. I really liked the last couple log rides out there. The last one, before the tight turn back to the right... I rode it w/out inspection. Got to the end and wasn't sure if I could roll the exit or not, so I stalled. Bike rolled off the right, and I belly flopped the log ride. The log bloodied my chin as punishment for my indecision.
If it makes you feel better, yesterday I was sessioning drops off a cement slab to a short downslope next to a paved trail. I was trying to hit it *just right*, so the front tire stayed up all the way down the incline and would gently touch down on the trail below. Looped out on my last attempt and went tailbone first onto the pavement(clipped in of course). No eyewitnesses present, thankfully.
