I fear we will soon have to start an 'Older & Slower' thread...:eek:
Legs must have read this comment. After Irregular the legs were toast tonight. I did not even have enough strength to finish with the guys or push Skinny Tire off the trail as he passed. :mad:

Still a good ride overall. Even with the Kavu sighting. :thumbsup:

FYI, the guy who was leading us up T100 ended up breaking his arm about 10 minutes after we saw you.

Both those left handers can grab you. Mark broke his wrist on the second one before the steps or was it the first one? Marky???

VOAZ heading up. At the last left turn before you get to the first saddle. I didn't see it, but more of a tip over on to a very unfortunate location.
Dang... I usually don't have any issues going up that section but I always dab coming down!

It was the second left hander going up right before the 3 step climb. And it was my hand.
Stumpygoat!! Good ride last night. I enjoyed the alternate return path.

You all need to remember. Those kids still have their baby fat. Give them 15 years and they will be slow like the rest of us.

What is truly demoralizing is that he was on a 40+ lb 1x10 geared DH bike. Maybe time to start needlepoint or something, but I'd suck at that too.
I think he was born around the time of the Chernobyl fallout which would explain a lot.

I was using maybe 75% lung capacity too which I suppose may not have helped. Probably should have not been on the bike but ahd already missed weekend rides for similar reasons and wasn't willing to let another ride go by. My measily <5 miles felt like a lot more.

Dang. Hope he heals up quickly. Falling at that spot looks like it'd be tricky business.
