Sounds like you either need to go to a lower gear or change your sprockets to lower you final gear ratio ! ! !

I'm running smaller sprockets up front but the video does not show the true size of rocks and steep angles at that course. That said I know I still need to get more comfortable so I can avoid the stops I'm getting.

Also at the end I was tired as hell :P

Don't get me wrong the course looks rocky but fun. I'd still put a larger sprocket on the rear so that the bike could idle easier over the larger boulders. I'm 51 years old and it wears me out quick too ! ! !

Ty for the tip. I've actually thought about a larger rear as well. Right now I've just got my suspension nice enough so that I don't feel like I have to bend the bike around every turn so it feels like I'm starting to get a little more speed (cut around 5 mins from my previous lap on the same course). So I'm hoping I'll manage to get the hang of the low rpm situations as well so I don't keep stalling it :)

Some highlights from our Lesotho trip this past June. There's a few falls and some cool action shots.
