Had an excellent 'Trailbreakers' skills session with Brad Mertens today. Spent the morning focusing on track stands, ratcheting, slow turns and bunny hops. We also spent time looking at bike set-up - I received some great tips on tire pressure, suspension set-up and tire choice.
After lunch, the focus shifted to cornering, technical drops and climbs.

Another fantastic days racing in the Rocky Trail GP series. Being a bit soft I can't solo 8 hours but I'm liking this format a lot. Even though I finished before the 4h mark. Yeah - double soft! Eye-wink

Although (sorry Martin) I'm still not completely set on the whole turn-up-qualify-relax-race part but an extra hour in bed can be afforded to those who don't care to qualify and might take that option in the future.

hour and half late for start:(

Had to show up at a party on FR night (good it was) and overslept, got a bit lost on the way there,... jadajadajada jumped on my bike 1.5hour after start. Liked the track, and laid back atmosphere!! Lost 3 teeth on my middle ring in the first lap:( Riding on the big guy for 6 hours, then a little granny took over. Also, haven't had my light fully recharged, so guess what - pitch black no warning, bit of a tumble in the woods, but I deserved it. Luckily had my spare light that got me through the rest of the evening. Loved every minute of it!!
