|Abi's face says it all...|
I guess my brain had blanked out how tough the first section was, and it quickly became clear that Abi was not enjoying herself. I can't really blame her as it did feel like a proper downhill course with massive rocks, roots and holes to dodge, all wet and slippery naturally.
Today I wasn't fully able to embrace my love of stopping to take pictures, as I don't think this would have gone down too well, asking the team to re-ride certain rocky sections would have probably ended with being hit or worse, the focus was more directed towards moving on and getting to the finish! Luckily all of us had a smile on our faces by the end, possibly for different reasons!
