Friday session

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I finally got out on a pretty decent ride with my montainboard. Was nice to see how it felt riding it with balance and control. The area where i did my riding is very limited and not the best place to practice but it was good enough for this session. Its a place where the farmer has his cows during summer and its very uneven, and has a lot of stones and weird holes everywhere. Really dangerous to ride outside the trail that i was on. No decent room for carving and learning how to stop.

The good things about this session was that i got to stand on the board, ride for a while, do some minor carving and test some jumping. Looks good for the future. All i need now is a better spot to practice on. I really need to practice the stopping part. Feel so limited when i don’t have that part down.


First test

So i got out on a small test run last friday on my BMX to see how it felt riding with the new handlebar. Was not the best day for testing. The weather changed and got really cold which made me feel sick. So i did not have much energy that day. But i got to ride a bit anyway and it felt like the handlebar was really good. Just the right size for the bike and my body.

I am hoping to do a more proper test soon.


A short trials session

First day since i started riding again a few weeks ago where it wasn’t fun being out. I guess the biggest reason for that is the day i had yesterday. Was really active with a lot of stuff the whole day and i guess i was still tired today. And with that i had no motivation.

Had a short test run though. Put some “new” pedals on the bike and went out to see how it felt. Did some track stand practice and some practice getting up on things and dropping of.The pedals are nice. I already knew that. They were on my trail bike before. New pedals on its way for my trail bike so i moved the old ones to my dirt bike. To get better grip than my earlier did.

My body did feel up to the ride so i cut it short and decided to have a rest day. Hoping to have a good day on my dirt bike tomorrow. Some stuff i want to test.
