Diva's coming back

Sweet Singletrack

3 crashes, two trips to the ER a partially torn rotator cuff and a broken elbow later and my Downhilldivaness was suffering. I used to fly down mountain bike trails no fear whatsoever. But it turns out a couple of painful crashes on trails that were really easy made me a little weary. I can't imagine losing even part of this summer to an injury. But I missed it. I missed that zone where I'm flying down and not even thinking, the bike moving beneath me and the trail opening up before me. I started of a little scared today but I made myself ride stuff, I made myself clip in and I found the zone again. Maybe I'm not as fast as I once was but Diva is coming back!
