Went out and retraced the route from our ride on Saturday , though part way round it was getting dark and I had no lights , so I did what any self respecting cross country rider would do ? That's right , thought I would try a downhill run to see what all the fuss was about
There were times I was wishing I had some sort of protection on, other times I was wishing I had 6"+ of suspension , but I got to the bottom without any 13 year old kids on £5k bikes behind me, in fact I didn't see anyone else all the time I was out ( guess some people have better things to do than ride out in the rain.
So I got to the bottom of the Corkscrew run , pumped and smiling , so beasted myself up to the top again and rode down the last three technical sections of the verderers in the mud. I rode this with the seat still dropped from the downhill run and it made a great difference on the tech sections , hire-rites on all bikes now
