    age and riding style

    I saw on here recently where a poster wrote that most of us older folks ride xc only. Ive found, at least in my area of the planet, that most of us older folks have gotten onto more agressive riding and less into xc and that the xc racers and riders are , but not always, younger.
    my question is how old are you and what would best describe your style?
    XC
    Aggressive xc
    XC racer
    Fitness
    Freeride
    Downhill
    Slacker
    Trials
    All mountain
    Other, please specify
    All the above
    I used to be more of a XC racer type but now do more aggressive xc and all mountain stuff. its not so much about speed as it is new challenges and exploration and dont care as much about downhill vs uphill as long as its technical or a new spot for me to ride. the more technical the better.
    for the creation was subjected to futility,not willingly , but because of Him who subjected it in hope...that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:20-29
    the truth may not always be popular but its always true

    Another 15 year old youngin' here. I do more of the endurance stuff. Triathlons, both on and off-road, XC racing, enduro XC events, running XC, and road riding. I think that's about it.

    I'm wanting to give DH a try. I'm thinking it will focus more on bike handling skills and explosive power than anything else. Only problem is I'd have to get new riding gear, I've heard not many downhillers show up in spandex and race-cut jerseys.

    33, everything, most of my riding friends do freeriding but that's because that's the crowd I roll with, not XC.
