Perfect timing. The cloud cover rips open and the sun shines through the tree tops at the start of my favourite trail. At the start it flows through spruce forest, but further down it gets technical and steep. If worst comes to worst, the spare tube and pump are easily accessible in the perfectly organised tool compartment. And then the nasty drop at the crux. It's a good feeling knowing that my back is optimally protected by the integrated SAS-Tec protector.
