Been pondering on whether I should join one of Tracey Moseley's downhill courses.
The last time I did a downhill ladies weekend was at Hamsterley with world cup champions, Helen Gaskell and Rachel Atherton last year, March 2006. Helen asked for a volunteer to do a four foot drop off on the top section of the DH course. I put my hand up to be the first victim. I almost made it, but in mid air I just knew the front wheel was too low and I went over the bars and made a mess of my leg. I was out of action for three months.
I guess mum's should know better.
