More 2-wheel chaos ensued in July, but I kept the camera tucked away, as it was mostly done on super secret trails. Two episodes of chaos stand out most: I was following Jason down Cruel &Unusual, and spaced on the little gap (0:56) he had just warned me about. I was rolling a touch too slow to clear it, and way too fast to roll over, so I instinctively balled up like a roly-poly & gave some standers-by a good show. 4 days later, Aaron & I were wheeling Bear Arms and I had major pedal-strike in the wooded zone, which instantly catapulted me OTB. When we left that day, my hand was feeling a bit off - figured I just stubbed it real good.
Saturday the 28th was an excellent pedal set up by Jeremy - a good number of the T.I.T.S. & Inflexables crews met up in Poncha Springs for a day of enjoyment. MCT isn't too insane, so I decided to take the KM I thought it'd be a fun, chill group ride.
Headed out feeling allgood as we rolled upward & across the scenic sections. Trouble was, we took an extended route: Starvation Creek, then back up top to Silver Creek. As soon as we hit Starvation, I started hurting, bad. I had to stop several times because I couldn't handle the pain in my right hand. Had to bail at Rainbow since I was out of food/water & in no shape to continue.
|Hirsch grinding back up the never-ending road|
|It's (almost) all downhill from here|
After, I gave in & went to get an x-ray & found out it wasn't a bruise, or a badly stubbed finger.
Looks like August is a wash on biking. Good thing I'm busy with work & other thangs. Reggae on the Rocks coming up soon with Burning Spear & Steel Pulse, nice!
