day 14 – self portrait

One 3.5 hour xc hack was a a bit much for my unfit body today.  I felt destroyed by the end of it.  I think it was my first completely un-lift-assisted ride in quite a few years.  The trails along the cliffs, especially when you get in sight and past Luz, are incredible!  Smooth, polished dirt single track, rocky gravelly loose stuff, flowing bedrock – tonnes of variety.  And you could ride 3/4 times along them and not ride the same piece of trail twice.  Setting up this self portrait had a group of German tourists rather perplexed.  Thanks goes out to my trusty Hahnel wireless remote which, set on a 4 second delayed release, took a bit of a beating getting thrown to the ground just before I entered the corner, about 7/8 times to get just the right timing.
