Also Mang Ricardo of Team Sandugo... Obviously for his age he isn’t fast anymore but given that he can ride TH trails at his age (and go up and down wall several times in a row), man that is really something in comparison to the young ones!
Thing about the modern age right now is that online videos pressure everyone to be someone else. Heck pro riders had their entire lives dedicated to riding (ie career) hence they can do cool and awesome moves. But for weekend warriors like most, as long as you can beat your previous self and overcome your set realistic goals, you’re good.
Remember, even if you are slow, you are beating every couch potato by a huge gap every pedal stroke you do. An exercise done no matter how short is better than not done at all.

Depends on ones physical constitution, I guess. Some people just age better than others or at least maintain good condition as they grow older.
On my 2nd Guimaras adventure, I was already bonking at the start due to my poor stamina especially for uphills. It should've been easier on cement but there I was lagging behind the group - patigil-tigil pa. While on the last climb trying to catch the group, imagine my surprise when I received a push from another rider. It was my first time to experience that, being pushed by another while he was riding as well. We rested at the peak to another surprise - he offered me a cigarette, not a hint of panting in his breath. And then another... that he is 64 years old.
In Korea 2006, my mostly white ride mates were in their 50s and can still shred. I guess continuously doing what we love helps too. I was forty at the time.

Nice to hear that... I can say that I'm a late cyclist bloomer.. I'm already on my 30's when I purchased my first entry level mountain bike. Looking back, I should've get myself into mountain biking earlier. Oh well, perhaps di pa ganun ka rampant ang mtb way back early 2000's or maybe mga friends ko iba ang trip that time.
In few years, I will reach 40... andun yung dalawang isip if to pursue trails or stick na lang ako sa city biking? haha... Nyway, I enrolled myself to basic mtb trail riding clinic here in my area. Tomorrow yung first day, hopefully not too late to ride like Danny Hart or Matt Jones. Haha.

anthrax76: 'di naman, pero parang may konting liko sa rear tire. kapag tiningnan from above, yung tire clearance from the right chainstay eh mas malaki kesa sa left chainstay.
