nice to see a thread like this
ive just entered masters 2 grade , been riding dh for about 15 years , still loving it .
If there is one rule of thumb id go for , its if you dont use it you will loose it.
That applies to fitness, cooridation and attidude.
one of the best things that keeps me going is training younger riders , there is definatly a two way street of inspiration going on.
Oh the best thing ive found latly - powerball - feel so much more stable on the handel bars in those rough sections. used to think i was just getting old loosing hands off bars and being unko.
ah well have fun guys ,plenty of years left in us yet
