    I discoverd that the world was round!

    Well, not exactly that. But I've been riding since jan 04. I've been reading a lot and trying to ride as much as I can.

    But, I've read a lot about relaxing your body on rides. It was a concept that if I thought about it, it made sense. But I just never realized that I was riding always with my body pretty tense. So, almost all descents were tense (fun eitherwise, but not much in control).

    Last ride I sort of just felt concious of this and made some 'efforts' to relax my body on some downhills. It felts very different, more confident and better ride. I was able to ride faster without feeling out of control.

    I'm sure going to try to be more relaxed from now on have fun!

    In addition to feeling more confident, you'll have more stamina. It takes a lot out of you (both mentally and physically) to stay tensed up during a ride.
