Mind Blowing

I often feel desensitized from appreciating quality bike handling from watching mountain bike edits all the time.  It is especially hard for me to grasp the level of riding in an edit if I don't have any conception of what it is like to ride the trail or jumps that are featured in the video.  Occasionally, an edit from a familiar trail pops up.  Seeing a top-level rider effortlessly destroy a set of turns that I have struggled to get through without braking puts the broad spectrum of riding into perspective. It is ridiculous, frustrating, inspiring, and most of all, it makes me want to ride my bike.

Are you being serious here, Bryn?

That's why I've watched this little teaser edit about fifteen times tonight. I am really excited to ride tomorrow.
