- choosing the right line
I was exploring some new routes round here today and found a nice little river-bed descent
It took me 4 attempts and one over the bars until I figured out how to get round this. There´s deep rut that goes through the middle (continues round the bend) that you really don´t want to get stuck in.
Although it doesn´t appear very steep, it is and by the time you reach it you´re already going some.
So, my question is, are you good at dealing with new terrain and surprises?
I guess in my case it´s slow down or crash (and I don´t like slowing).
…in case you´re wondering, the best line was to go down the inside right of the pic, seems simple but it wasn´t 😛Posted 6 years agobigyinnMember
Id have aimed for the lumpy bit between the 2nd and 3rd ruts (L-R) and then Prob cross the 3rd rut by going just to the left of the clump of grass. The rut looks like you’d be crossing it almost perpendicular by then.
Im usually pretty good at reading the terrain (and then hanging on hoping things will sort themselves out).Posted 6 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I’m pretty useless at learning and remembering trails but the tradeoff is I’m relatively good at first-timing trails.
Not going to judge your corner there because the camera never gives an accurate picture. Though obviously I’d just do a barrel roll while blowing a kiss to the audience (out of shot).Posted 6 years ago
