Out for a blast in the local woods today and we found a section of trail that I could not clear.
Singletrack along a ridgeline, then a small hump up into a sharp rutted left that got steep real quick, a root to clear then straight down into a compression and out. Friend takes one look at it and clears it straight away. I on the other hand got to the sticking point where you had to commit, and stopped.
That was the end of it. Then got into a routine of pushing back up the trail, having a word with myself, rolling back down and getting to the same point when my brain would go 'You don't want to be clipped in for this', cue left foot out, grind to a halt.
If it was a straight run in, I wouldn't have thought twice about it. Most frustrating.
Any suggestions on where to get some brave pills that would have helped?
