I thought I'd link some video of my friend's trail we've hacked up in some of his property...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3rD28lMYTw

That was last year - it's more extensive now.  Anyhow, this is a much better way to improve your bike handling than triathlon!

 

*And for Left Brain - note Axel, our friendly retired K9 officer, following along

Awesome trail!!

1. Axel looks like he is enjoying retirement......kudos to you all!  Those dogs do tremendous work and earn a good life after they're done. Thanks!

2. You hit the nail on the head for handling skills.  When the kid was racing Jr Elite he put down some of the biggest power files of anyone on the circuit....and got crushed on the draft legal race....even though nobody could ride with him in a non-draft race.  His cycling coach put him on a mountain bike over a winter....nothing else, just 3 different trails each week.  By the next race season the problem was solved.

Axel is full on beast mode if you throw a big stick down to the bottom where the creek is.  He charges straight for it... trail?  what trail? :D  I would not want to be a bad guy with him on the loose.

I crashed into my desk just watching that.  

That's a beautiful dog.

Did it help when I yelled "duck!" when you went under that low branch?

Super cool video and trail.
