I just love getting out and riding DH in the rain. I do not do it very much because being out in the rain sucks. The riding you get when everything is muddy and slick is so much fun though. Makes me miss east coast riding.

I need to go and clean everything now, but it was well worth it :thumb:

Yup! Riding in the rain is fun.
Surfing around corners always puts a smile on my face. Riding in BC, if you don't ride in the rain you will spend too much time off of the bike!
I thought I was done with that when I came over here, but here it all just comes down at once! A monsoon hit the last race, was crazy fun.

Since I live in So Cal, we don't see a lot of rain, I HATE the rain! Call me weird, but I like dry nasty dirt--Big Bear and Mammoth style...

I run clipless, even in the real nasty slippery stuff. You just have to completly commit yourself.

I agree! I love the loose and sketchy gravel in Mammoth!
