So I finally decided to do the Wednesday night group ride here in Vernal. I have been putting it off for the past while because it intimidated me when I would get seriously winded and some times want to puke my guts out on “Mellow” Monday. So I kept asking myself .. if this is mellow, what is a regular ride like? Well I finally found out. Of course the first time out I ended up going on a black diamond run (Very technical). While at first I didn’t think this was the best choice … it may have been better that way. Since my handicap is the cardio portion. I don’t have the endurance most the guys have that do XC. But I did make up for it in the technical sections for the most part. Well with the exception of wrecking three times. But at least I fared better than two of the other guys riding. One of them got a dislocated pinky finger and thrashed his leg. The other guy sprained his ankle.
Anyways, The trail was AMAZING and though it kicked my ass I can’t wait to do it again.
