I was lucky enough to have the chance to ride my mountain bike just before Christmas. It was decided during the Vespinoy Christmas get together that December 23, Sunday would be a good day to go biking again. My last ride out, to test the track at Filinvest, where they held the Sabak 12 hour endurance race was a real disappointment for me. Still feeling nervous after suffering 2 falls in my last 2 rides on the trails, I was hesitating on the track at every given opportunity. I just barely finished 2 laps and decided to call it quits since I was having a really terrible time.
It was a welcome relief to come back to the Sta. Rosa trails to get rid of some of my demons. It was a really wonderful ride on so many levels. Des had a blast riding down Upak, clingking and clangking all the way down. Yeyey has really improved so much over the months. Ricky and the other Sabak boys were ecstatic once Yey reached the Buko stop after the Cardiac hill climb. And the way down was just pure fun. John also had a very good ride, considering this was his very first trail ride. Ang galing mo dude!!!!
