I have the choice of riding 'trail' (xc?) in a sauna tonight, or DH tomorrow at our local hill. Funnily enough, I'm nervous about riding DH. It would be my first time out this year, and I feel like I'm not in the right mindset. That and my riding partner is a racer and has been training and racing for a couple of months now. That spells 'recipe for disaster' to me. But it's all a question of headspace I think... I just need to take it slow I guess and ease into it.
Wow, rain soaked yesterday followed by a rain soaked today. Not the best weather for riding a motorcycle, that's for sure. Worst thing about riding in the rain is I have not replaced my full face moto helmet and have been rocking my Slayer dirt lid. While a great helmet, not the best for high speed rain soaked runs.
