I have this feeling...that saturday is gonna kick my ass. my dh ride is finally fixed up and rideable, but i need to get my ass ready for the carnage of riding that the local dh trails usually put out.

it's been months since i've truly ridden the dh bike (not the freeride/ jump rig) and i haven't really been focusing on my riding at all.

the I have a feeling my position on the team depends on my performance this saturday, and i dont want to look the fool in front of our team manager and the new sponsor, a major bike company....but its been soooo damn long since i've even jumped, let alone gone full bore down FREAKIN 2 MILE stretch of downhill, forty foot gaps. big step-ups, slick, loose corners and muddy conditons.

this weekend is gonna be fun. or remind me i am too fat and outta shape and getting too old for this shit. i may be 19, but i have the body of a 50 y/o man. lol. i gotta stop crashing so hard.

good thing i got some new protective gear on the way :)

well see how the weekend goes, but i am not stoked right now in any ways. fixing the bike has cost me a fortune, and i now have to PAY to ride trails i grew up riding on the peninsula for free!

seriously, i know the local trails club guys do great work and all, but dammit, having to PAY to ride trails i built and rode before half of the new 'trail-crew' even lived out there? i kinda think that shit is bs! my buddies and i used to show up w/ pyramid and or a 24 or rainier/pbr, and that was good enough to shuttle those trails for the day

hopefully we at least get some good stuff on film, but like i said, i haven't really been on the bike enough lately to feel confident in my ridng skills. i dunno. lol. we'll see how it goes
