I'm relatively new to mtbiking, but I'm trying to be more aggressive and get that technical stuff under my belt. So, my friend and I went out this morning at Ute Valley Park in Colorado Springs and MAN what a great ride. I ride it almost daily, but this was my first time not going solo.
I was headed down a technical section of trail, and saw ahead that there was about a 2 foot drop off a rock that I was unprepared for line-wise. Plus, I'm on a hardtail and haven't ever dropped that far, and don't plan on it (yet). After rain last night, I tried stopping at the top of the drop, but the rock/mud mixture was too much and sent me OTB off the drop. I went knee first (obviously) and took a good lickin. It was .... GREEAT!
I'm seriously doing good at keeping myself safe and not doing things I shouldn't be - - I just goofed this one. It's certainly thrilling, especially riding around for an hour after it happened haha.
