OK so I have been riding for about two months and in those two months I've done about 258 miles so far. I'm getting pretty good at alot of the technical rides and my cardio has improved dramatically. I have a well established route at boyette and alafia of the rides I do.
I do SST, Loch Ness, Upper Loch, Randy's trail, Spider berm, North Abyss, Half of South Abyss, Pandemonium, All of South Abyss, Spur (For some nice air =), Golf cart, Gator Pit, Randy's trail, West Meadow, Baby Nessie, Inner Loch then finish up with SST. It generally takes me an hour and 15 minutes to complete. Well I have been improving and have at one time cleared everything except South Abyss and Pandemonium.
Well I was riding yesterday flying through everything, I felt like I was snowboarding and I was slaloming(spelling) through the trees. I generally have a minor spill early on in my ride, it actually loosens me up and i'm less nervous. But yesterday I didn't have one crash the entire time. I did dab on some climbs but other then that I was doing awesome.
Then on my way back on Inner Loch, Boyette decided that I was going too fast and doing too good to let me finish with a flawless victory. It magically threw a tree into my left handlebar on a left curved turn. Needless to say I overcorrected and before I knew it I was in the air flying over bushes and then SPLASH! Thankfully my bike hung up on a tree and my camelbak kept my cellphone from frying. Something knocked my contact lens into my eyelid, so I had to carry my bike back ontu the trail and fish a contact lens out of my eye. I then proceeded to accidentally drop the lens into the dirt and spent the next 5 minutes looking for it. I finally found it, washed it off, pulled the branch out my front tire and then realized that something had bit me on the back of my leg while I was looking for my contact. It formed a black spot and I still don't know what it was, I'm still alive at the time of this writing so it couldn't have been that bad.
Anyways I finished my ride soggy and dirty. And the feeling that Boyette is out to get me was strengthened!
Any of you guys have certain trails or parks that always throw curves at you =)
