A very nice video again, definitely worth the wait. Youre giving me similar ideas. I'm not sure I'd be as good/confident talking to a camera though. I loved that scream/noise in the middle of it. Brilliant.

Youre really not joking about moving at pace, do you know what speed you got up to there? It looks about 90 mph!

Youre right about the balance thing, take a look at any Dakar 2009/2010 youtube of Marc Coma, and you will see he is flying along bent over his bars, with elbows flared in the attack position; you know elbows up. This is probably why you didn't feel so bad on the Monday either. When youre going fast you have to lean basically over the front of the bike - a cool feeling, but watch out for rocks! I found that after 4-5 hours of riding like this my back got really sore. So in gym, Im working the back and gluet's and this made a big difference to me.

One question though: How can you do whoops like that? I normally hang back on the bars in that situation and gas it, but it tires me out really quickly. Maybe you have a couple of pointers for me on that one.

I have never had any training on off road riding... let alone whoops....I try to keep my weight over the bars and just go as fast I can while still in control. Seems the faster I go, the easier it is.... thats about as well as I can explain it. Stay over the top of them makes it easier...?

I just learned what i need to do in order to transfer to novice in USDR. The rules state that I need to finish in the top 20% of my class, twice. This last time in finished in the top 40% - so a few more good finishes and Ill be able to move up.... as for D.37....... heh...... the races are SO much harder, Im not even ready for a voluntary transfer
