Second visit this afternoon. Took some advice from above (thanks) and ran tyres with 10psi less than normal. Felt and sounded (?) a bit strange at first but was a more comfortable ride in my HT. Also dropped the seat post a little. Surprisingly felt a lot more tyre drift in some corners but that may have been because i was riding faster.
Still enjoying the novelty of the new trails and rode much better than last week. That's three TC visits now and riding the berms much better. Read about pointing inside knee (opening hips) and focus on head looking well round the corner made a lot of difference. Still had one very dodgy moment on one of the early doubles. Note to self, you are not a jumper! Two blues and one and a bit reds today. The middle bits f the red - after the reservoir, deerstalker, labyrinth and the fast bermy bits after - remain my favourites. Deerstalker was particularly good fun today.
Does anyone else get caught out by the little roots on one early/mid RH corner in labyrinth. They are right next to a tree and need to be hit at speed but both times today, I failed to hit them with enough speed. Made it the first time but dabbed the second
Tutgareth - taking a punt on the accent. Were you up there today on a brown Trek fuel ex and headphones?
