And before anyone says owt, this certainly isn't a complaint! Just an observation. No doubt on my own crap technique.
We had a belting run round Rivi last night. I can't remember the trails this dry, fast an dusty. And therein lies the problem*.
I was definitely slower down the San Marino last night than I am when there's a stream running down it (the other 364 days a year). I have no problem hooning down it when its a trail of ankle deep filth. But I was all over the place, quite frankly, last night! There were a few very hairy, sideways moments.
I'm reckoning this is due to me being completely out off practice on dry, loose sketchy stuff. Its been literally years since the trails have been like this. They've been sodden bogs for 24 straight months at least, before the last few weeks.
Anyway.... hopefully I'll have chance for plenty more practice. Looks like it
Anyone else finding this though? Or is it just me?
* its not really a problem
