Cairns World Cup


Well Cairns was a bit of a disaster with the weather. Probably the hardest conditions of all time to ride in. No grip on the off cambered roots clay. Greasy rocks, steamy weather, etc. I had fun only part of the time, it was really quite hard to feel good about things. Obviously some people still managed to rise to the top, but I had multiple crashes in my run and just wasn't feeling great about what happened. Have to move on I suppose and just forget about that stuff. Bit of a skill riding that slow tech stuff and keeping balance on your feet. Once both feel lost contact with the pedals, it was over. Gotta keep one foot on , hands clean, look ahead, and pick up your wheels not to slow down when hitting roots or whatever. Some softer suspension would've maybe helped absorb the hits instead. That's what I learned anyway.
