I rode the Black at GT with a group of mixed abilty guys. Some very good SXC racers and some fun riders. As the lead group spun three abreast along a fire road section, a trailquest competitor, initially 'peep peeped' them. They assumed it was a joke and hesitated for a second. He then rudely swore at them and told them in no uncertain terms he was a 'f**king racer in a f**cking race' and to get out of his f**king way.
One of our number let him past then spun up to him and questioned his attitude. It didnt end well. The guys I was with have ridden SXC for years and have never experienced that behaviour before.
He was the one fly in the ointment in what was a great day's riding.
