Not so bad!

Woke up feeling pretty sore this morning, so I had a laze about! Got to the trails and it wasn't really happening, the pain got worse every time I rode. Scooby was in a similar boat. I took some ibuprofen though and it seemed to give me the kickstart I needed! The more I rode the better it got, and although I didn't feel anywhere near 100% I had a lot of fun in the end. Got some good tables and Scoob got on the no handers, so not so bad after all, I think it actually done me good I feel better now!

Transferrrrs and pain

Hit up a new transfer today, I was a bit scared cause now one had tried it yet, but it turned out ok! and was really fun! until my third attempt, when somehow I leant back too much and couldn't get the front end back down. i looped out big time on the landing, landed on my back and smacked my head on the ground. It hurt a lot but kinda went away again so I rode as much as I could before I stiffened up too much to ride... I was pretty sore when I stopped riding...neck, back, cocyx, shoulders, head... but the ibuprofen is sorting me out good so we'll see what tomorrow brings!! Scooby also had a nice trip over the bars so we spent the evening taking it in turns to moan.

The one where I fell off:

Race in yer face

Jonny, Jay and Stone are all seriously into the full regional series this year, so me and scoob decided we want in on the action. We got some serious training in today, check it out, it's the future... grass sprints whist pulling a water container. This will seriously increase power and we will be wasting the race!!! We have started off light with just 10 litres but the full capacity is 30 litres we'll be working up to that in no time. We don't mess about.



Saying that, Stone is going to have to miss a couple of months of the series now. On friday he got caught by a nasty gust of wind at the trails...result = 1 damaged shoulder, 1 sprained ankle, concussion, 1 dislocated thumb, 1 broken bone in the other hand and some egg shaped swelling on his knuckle. That really sucks. Get well soon!

Before all that happened we've had some awesome fun jumping over each other at the city trails, check the pics...

Jacob

If you have 10mins to spare, check out this cool animation an old school friend created...

"Young Jacob lives in a fantasy world of super heroes but is rudely awaken when his obsessive compulsive, overbearing mother decides she has had enough of the clutter and burns his precious comics and toys. If super heroes have taught Jacob anything it's that justice must be served, and so Jacob sets out for vengeance the only way he knows how... by becoming a Super Hero!"

The Friday Night Train!

Here's a few clips Stu took of us at the city trails tonight, how much fun?!!!! Transfer and jumping over people madness! I love the light nights! Matt and Tucker have the trails running super good at the moment since Matt bought a big bin to fill with water and lug up the trails every session, commitment. Weather looks good all weekend so more of the same is in order I think..
