The ride started very well, we skipped the normal warmup of going over a stadium fence due to a bunch of riders in the warmup area and no one on course so we went on course. The first couple of jumps over an 12" log were "off", it appears as though I was riding too defensively and getting left behind. A quick acknowledgement of the issue helped me relax and try trusting TWH and we were able to have some nice jumps.
After going over the small logs in unison, we moved to the SUPER SCARY LOG that we had refusals at in April. It was a beginner novice jump so I wouldn't have to jump it on Sunday but wanted to jump it anyway. I rode hard to the log and we went over without a second thought!
|This is easy, over on the first attempt!|
|Hands not forward/pulling on his mouth, attributing to the fact |
I was riding so aggressively to ensure no refusals.
|We love water now!|
|Biggest xc jump ever for the TWH!|
