Lisa’s Blog – Bear MTN DH – BC Cup #2

Pure sloppiness!

Staying on the bike was a challenge in these wet and muddy conditions. I never did fall right off my bike, but I had my feet down a few times to keep myself upright as I slipped. I felt so rough on my bike, because you never really could predict where the mud was going to lead you.

In these conditions your true fitness level is tested. I obviously have a lot to work on! I was so exhausted by the end of it. Going fast downhill through mud is super fun, but going through the flatter muddy sections was tough and grueling! I wasn’t sure I was going to make it through I was going so slow, and 7 minutes is a long time for a DH course! The wet conditions added about 2 minutes to everyone’s time.

I loved the ambiance at this race. Everyone was wet right through, but still super stoked to be riding their bikes.

 

A highlight for me was watching all the guys’ faces when Paula and Iz were hosing the mud off of each other at the end of the race (see video)! Haha!
