Mountain Biking is measured balance. To ride the course, takes the ultimate caper of control & acceleration. Mastery of the pedal stroke. Plunging towards the burm with articulated flow; that propels one forward in an engulfing, satisfying rush. The phrenic demand held in essence, is sought yet again as a new day rises. Not to be mastered in a day.... nevertheless daily revelings in the sport hold it's dwellers captive.
