Now, I’m not a total newb when it comes to cycling and mountain biking, but I would venture to say that I’ve been pushing the limits the last few weeks as I ramp up my training for the Firecracker 50 in July. (More on that later)

I finally hit my first limit… the traction of my tires on a loose-sand downhill off-camber corner section.

Having survived, I just missed a PR on this section of singletrack. Next time…

Also, another gorgeous day in Parker, Colorado.
