GR RT-Duthie: Anonymous rider proven correct-fortune teller or just an incredible lack of confidence? Coming back from Duthie, a rider caught up to me on the downhilll to the bog. He declined when I asked him if he wanted to go around. I stopped on the Bog Bridge for some approaching riders. I asked him again, telling him that I was in no hurry, which I never am with busy trails on a weekend. As we were stopped, he replied, "You will be faster than me on the climb." He stuck to my wheel for the first 2/3 of the climb up from the bridge, but then I heard the sound of silence, i.e, no bike noise as he lost contact. I might have turned it up a bit on the last 1/3, and I never saw (or heard) him again.
