Lena Trials

Just got back, what a beautiful day of riding. I ended up 3rd in the novice class. I was pleased with that but I know where the areas are I need to work on. Great fun though and it's incredible the land these people have and are nice enough to host events.

Congrats! I'd love to see some pics or vids from one of these events. Kind of curious to see what the course and obstacles look like.

I'll have to get some of my videos sorted and uploaded. It is a lot of hillsides with small but steep hills. Usually tight turns loose dirt or rocks that make it difficult to keep balance and momentum. Lots of off camber creek beds the. If you go up to expert classes they pick some really washed out rooted up lines to make it really hard.

Watching the experts and up is incredible. The hop the rear wheel on top of a log so when the front wheel lands it spans the gap.
