See that saddle bag looking all innosent well, it isn't. Flying down the mountain I could feel that the damn thing had come loose again. I was in fear of it sliding down and getting into the rear wheel so I tried to re-attach it while riding. Ofcourse it was driving me crazy and pissing me off. I finally got the damn thing to re-attach and this tree jumped out in front of me at about a twenty mph desent. You know when you do somethin' and you end up flat on your back and you think, "that hurt", well you can figure it out. The terrain was so rough in sections that it would slap your chain off. I dropped my chain no less than three times. You know the saying, "three times and your out", not so true. Even after all this crap it was a great ride and I still got 2nd place loosing by 2min. Once I stopped the pain set in and the adrenaline decreased and I thought I was going to vomit. But, never fail my darling bride caught it all with this picture.
