Don't be discouraged, it really does get easier! It was pretty tough today with the heavy leaf cover and slick mud underneath. I just finished looking over the scores and they were pretty high in all classes.
There was a "cheater line" for that log crossing... you could have gone all the way out to the left on the near side of the creek and then had a straight shot at the log. It takes some time to get used to picking lines too...
Let's get some riding in this winter. I'll be in touch via PM.
Thanks for coming out - I hope you had fun!
