CX Shenanigans:
To quote Billy Birmingham... "Typical stinking fucking hot day here in Bombay." Shit house for sleeping, but pretty bloody nice to ride in!

I think the tweaks I've made to my setup/fit have helped too, as after a couple of warm up trails I started to see lines better, floating bunny hops over obstacles and landing (mostly) smoothly the little down ramps my brain was highlighting. Like the chicken and the egg, I can't quite figure out which came first, or which is more important, but it felt good.

During the day, I thought about the old saying "slow is smooth, and smooth is fast", and somewhere an addendum was added. "...but loose is fun!"

That permeated into my brain, and the gravel trail to the side of Canterbury road saw me drifting and grinning. Though maybe the grin was because of how absurd I felt with an avocado bulging out of my jersey pocket.
