We meet people everyday, from all different walks of life. On my journey I have met some amazing people. For instance my friend Josh Krynock, He is probably one of the most inspiring riders I have ever met. He doesn’t care about the miles on a bike, as long as you’re riding. He has a gift to build trails, and let me tell you they are some of the best works I have seen in his short span of time on the bike.
We have been riding for the same amount of time. He does DH and is a badass at it. No fear — he doesn’t worry about whether he wins as long as he can make it to the bottom. That to him is winning, and it is to me, too. Surviving to see another ride. He also has the same passion as I on two wheels.
I have to say in all honesty I have not been riding a lot lately. I am kinda going through the motions. I got hurt a few months back and I am still healing. Cracked 2 ribs while skateboarding. I’d sometimes rather hit the dirt than wood. Not saying that dirt don’t hurt, but falling into a bowl and landing on your side kinda does. It’s full on impact, and it happens so fast you really don’t have time to get ready for it. (If you haven’t noticed, I am kinda all over the place in my head, so this post might be far from the title, but who cares, you’re reading it.)
Like I said I haven’t really been riding all that much. I want to, but I always have something coming up like moving or work. I have to stay in one piece for my job. The older I get the more time it takes for me to heal, and I am not a fan of that but it is what it is. I like to push myself hard on two wheels — and also four — but now I have got to just relax more and just enjoy the ride. Not saying I never did enjoy my rides. But now I’m in a place where I can really just enjoy my ride and have fun with it. I am just in a different place in my life now for the better. Things are moving fast for me, and I can control my energy now more.
Anyway, I want you all to be safe out there and use your head. RAMFB.
