Good session at Gisburn with Giles and Paul. Realised straight away that the others had the better of me on the technical sections, so rode the 1st lap at my own pace trying to keep up as best I could. Felt the rims bottoming out a few times on the rocky sections so put more air in (up to 25 PSI front and back - had been 15 on the first lap) which made the 2nd lap much more enjoyable. Was good to ride with others who are better (and who were also reading full-sus XC machines, compared to my hardtail) to try and follow their wheels. Enjoyed the new route which avoided Hully Gully, much more flowing. Trails were pretty dried out with only a few puddles/muddy sections.
