Sessioning a difficult obstacle typically involves way more many failed attempts than successful ones. This was especially true for me two weeks ago when I kept trying to ride this new log skinny 'backwards' at CROCT's Caron Pk trail. The timing for unweighting the rear wheel to prevent slipping was surprisingly precise. And even when I got that part right, holding my line on the skinniest part of the log was sketchy. The 7 fails in this 34-sec video are just a few of the many that day
Twice in the past week I did some sessioning with guys who wanted to depart from their usual ride-the-trails-as-fast-as-possible routine: fellow MORC members Chris Knight and David Starrs.
When they both made remarks during and after about how it was a completely foreign experience, it occurred to me to create a short video to show that sessioning a technical obstacle (in this case, a rock) typically involves a lot of failed attempts.
