|So exciting to be here! I was pinching myself all morning because it felt like I was dreaming!|
First off, this is the most technically challenging place I have ever ridden! It took me 2 hours to ride 3 laps, but I think that's because I stopped to session some stuff, and re-ride things I messed up on, like slippery rocks.
|Besides being scary, it's also really pretty here!|
|Right under the Shimano sign is the steepest, sketchiest part of La Beatrice. It's a lot scarier than it looks!|
|Then a bunch of drops, they may look small, but these bad boys are bigger than they look!|
|Another really techy rock section. This one I kept accidently missing because I lined myself up for the B-line without even realizing it on each lap.|
|This is a terrible picture of the 100 boys waiting to wash off their downhill bikes... swoon!|
