It's fun until you fall off for the 100th time. Snow and ice are not my friends.
That's all part of he fun! I had an ace slam today...I was jumping a sketchy little jump into a bomb hole, which was fine despite a few hidden ruts. There is then a little berm at the bottom.
This berm proved to be the most problematic thing, especially after it'd been identical for a bit and the snow compacted. Too fast, too high up the berm, no grip and some hidden logs, bumps meant the bike stopped whilst I continued. Straight over be bars with a Diabolus stem to the knees! I saw the funny side though and lay in the snow laughing.
The hidden puddles are funny too....looks smooth, the ice cracks and the front wheel disappears!
I can't wait or tomorrow. It's still snowing now, it hasn't stopped all day. Tomorrow is gonna be ace. Although I'm gonna freeze as my tights ended up in a bag if stuff accidentally given to a charity shop, so it'll be shirts all the way for me!
