For the Saturday ride we headed over to Mickleham & after perfect conditions yesterday where the trails were frosty but grippy. Today was warmer & slippy! Spent a bit of time practicing some jumps to get warmed up & build up the confidence. Then we all proceeded to slide down the hill, well all apart from Dan who filmed the video & consequently we don't get to see his masterclass! I myself had a little off on one of the jumps, which the video shows me mastering (yellow Lapierre Zesty) What it didn't quite catch is my foot coming out my cleat mid air & crashing on landing! So apart from the broken collar bone much fun was had by all.
