    I am so happy. I went into Probike this afternoon and chatted to my friend Denise there. Anyway, I asked him about this massive cycling event in Andorra, a month from now on, 4 hours drive. I asked him some questions, etc, etc. Anyway, he casually asks if we checked out the trail he recently told us about and I'm like yeah, it was great, thanks for the reccomendation. He said if we're going this weekend and I'm like, yeah, 'course, on Saturday. He's just like, "Why don't you join us to ride this weekend? We're meeting and then taking the funicular up to the mountains and then downhilling."

    Of course, I agreed. So now, me and a mate are going to go cycling with three pro freeriders. Hehe, I'm all excited now. He said we'd like the trails they ride and he'd love to see how I've progressed in cycling.

    That's all, I just wanted to share this.

    That's what I'm hoping to take a few of. I'll take it and we'll see how much time I'll have to stop and photograph.

    I've especially always been wondering how a pro would ride the trail at a higher speed, i.e, what lines he'd pick.

    Maybe he'll ride a wheelie through the whole trail. That would be badass.

    Yeah, it would. I wonder how he'd manage the 300m rock garden though.

    Yeah, good luck pronouncing it over the internet. Anyway, he's Spanish, although it's still a rare name, girl or boy. Sorta: "De-niz". Bleh, anyway, who cares about names.
