Went over Cwmcarn, did some of the red and had a play on the jumps before heading over to the DH.

Was on my own so tend to hold back a bit (plus I was foooooking knackered from climbing up there :lol: )... and it was very windy!

Anyways, excuses over :D

Raw rid, but watch out for the sheep and see me get blown sideways over a drop at about 4:30!

Not sure if anyone is actually interested in watching these, but theres no point in filming if I don't share them haha.

Enjoy lol.

    NM,

    Great vid as usual, I enjoy watching these so keep 'em coming :cool: . Your earlier CC vids were handy as well for me to get a feel of the DH course - I tried it for the first time on Friday and had a good laugh despite having no rear derailleur or chain for the afternoon runs !

  • Cheers guys :D

    Yeah that wind was a bit of a shock... considering it was my 1 and only run of the day I wasn't prepared for it at all! I think a lot of the guys on the uplift had gone home!

    Stevo, let me know when you're next on the CC DH, how many runs did you manage in the end?

    Will do mate, I am keen to go again sometime soon - reckon I'd be a fair bit slower than you though, I need a bit more practice and some bigger balls :-)

    I managed 8 runs, 4 with a chain and 4 without. Kenny only does up 8 trips to the top in winter :-(

  • I was meant to do CC DH 2 weeks ago but bust my back the previous week. I'd booked the uplift service too. :x

    3 weeks now and still can only just about walk. I think it might be time to visit the doctor...... :roll:

    Cannot wait to do it. I think the next trip is Fort William and I really need some DH practice before I do that one.
  • Doesn't sound too good! When you recover let me know if you do pop over for a skid!

    Tis my local so I'm usually on the mountain somewhere :lol:
  • I forced myself onto the bike yesterday to try and get some cardio in. I came back and almost collapsed in agony. Not the best idea........

    Will give you a shout, am looking at hopefully being there sometime towards end of Feb back permitting.

    rest up dont try get on the bike to early it will take you longer to recover..

    i did my back 3-4 weeks ago (i had been out riding got back home went to get out of the car to open the gates as i went to stand up to get out the car i felt my back go) dont know why i had not had any slams or owt..
    i to could bearly walk and was in agony just sitting on the couch hurt.. this was a sunday.. on the tuesday i thought i need to be out sick of being in all the time. so i went out for a quick spin did 15miles on the road bike nothing to hard, big mistake when i got home i could not stand up i struggled to walk.
    the warm shower was a god send... i rested up for the last 3 weeks taking it easy.. i felt ok today back was feeling good so i jumped on the road bike and managed 17 miles all seems fine..
    just rest up and take it easy....
