Roots so wet you could see your reflection in them if you got close enough. Trails the are different from the usual put an even bigger smile on my face. I hear the tires roll over the slicker stuff, slightly conservative and then confident that the big wheels can handle a bit more speed, lean and drift. Solo effort because most of the time it's better that way. Pushed a bigger gear, and felt the bike flow, I almost found that place, then back to reality.
