    I'll say it again, someday when you get on a real bike, it's gonna be nuts to watch.
    umm yeah, i think yesterday was sufficiently nuts from where I'm sitting. seriously i'm in some major pain today.

    Lighten up Frances. I was just busting balls. I remember you saying how those first two climbs seemed a lot shorter this time. It's all perspective and the climbing part gets easier the more you do it. That climb up to the trail that leads over to the caveman drop used to seem like pure torture to me. It's a lot easier now.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    I think i knew that bro!

    As far as climbing, i was talking to grassi as i walked up one of them. I think i want him to bring a bull horn next time and scream at me like he would one of his lacrosse players.

    Climbs are always going to be tough with the low free-ride seat style you've adopted. I notice you stand and mash a lot. That's draining on the whole body. I only usually stand on the steepest of climbs, to get over some uneven terrain, or when I need just one final burst to make it to the top.

    That would be pleasant...

    I thought you were riding well yesterday Pat. There was a few times on short climbs that I thought I would have dropped you, but you were right there on my tail.

    I think everyone was riding well. I hope the pace and break locations/lengths were good. I like how Chris only needs 90 seconds or so and is then ready to get going again.

    Yes, what he said is true. Ideally you want your seat high enough so that you leg is almost fully extended when your pedal is at the bottom of the stroke and your foot is relatively parallel to the ground. That's for when you're doing a lot of pedaling or uphill. I like to lower mine for going down sketchy stuff, or if I was going to be doing any crazy hucks like you do. For the most part I keep it slightly lower than the optimal pedaling height.

    Agreed, I didn't mean to imply that everyone else was riding poorly. I guess I was just expecting less out of Pat.
