    I never thought of myself as a racer, but there is something about riding unknown trails, as fast as you can, as if your life depended on it and beating someone, even if it was the little girl on the pink bmx

    Whoo Hoo! I did my first race last night. Been meaning to for ages and then a friend told me about a local Trail Quest event. No excuses and a pass from the missus and I was off. Great fun. More navigation than flat out racing, but loved it. Need to push myself a bit harder next time (next time!) to be competitive, but I got a good(ish) score.

    Bring on the next one. I could get used to this… 😀

    You said it yourself really, but trailquests are nothing like racing.

    yep, those trailquests can be fun (and stragely addictive)

    When the UK mountain bike orienteering rider overtook me, believe me, I put race face on (didn’t catch him tho’!) 🙁

    It seems that most people on STW race for the fun of it rather than the burn of it. It’s nice the be part of an event
