Ok I realize you CAN ride all year and some of you have no issues riding all year at all (cali and florida people) but my season is 90% done. This is gonna be a huge year for snow and we just got our first taste. So I am officially ending my seasons and relegating myself to training and the odd snowjump or possibly north shore ride.
So I am wondering, how was everyones year. Did you progress, did you get to ride somewhere never before. An epic, a trick learned...anything at all.
For me in my second year of being on a bike I was able to progress a lot. While I didn't do any of the longer epics this year I focused on basic bike skills. An area I am really weak. I foudn body positioning to be the hardest thing to work with and have gotten much better thanx to Crashing_sux. I also continued focusing on riding skinnies and more technical trails which I seem to enjoy riding more than most other types.
I got a bit of djing in at the end of the season which really got me psyced for next year on the mountain. I think I have a crush on catching air. I even got my cousin out on my other bike trying to get him in the air. Good times.
This was a great year and I expect next yearto go even further with my new bike. Since the bighit I have improved even more and my confidence has sky rocketted with a dc fork on the front. But for now I semi-retire the bikes and buckle down and start working a lot of OT to bank time for the spring. I am already thinking of nextseason on the mountain. Cheers.
So how was your year?
