I decided to focus on what was in front of me, instead of what was going on around me, and with pleasant results. Its nice to take a different perspective every now and then.

Tucking in behind the bars, keeping your knees pointed forward and your elbows close to your waist is the best way of attaining the most speed on your downhill cycle. One of the things I like about this pic is the vague line the tyres make on the wet tar just behind the bike as it flies down the steep downhill of Suikerbossie going into Hout Bay.
