Went out for a rip around the Poto today. Just after Patterson Lake Rd ( couple miles past the sand pit), three good 'old boys were in the parking lot, hanging outside their van. They mumbled something about MTBers, but I just kept going. I proceeded to descend at a good clip - this is a smooth descent wherein you can get a lot of speed. To my dismay, someone had laid a log across the trail about half way down. Of course, by this time, I was going pretty fast. I skidded for some time through the leaves, eventually flipping over the bars face-first into the log. Glancing up the trail, I noticed that one of 3 men was watching, then quickly went the other way.
I cleared the log and cleared another that was another 20 yards down.
I rode back up, but decided not to confront them. I just didn't like the odds.
Was this a fallen tree? No chance. Needless to say, I was really .
All in all, I got some scratches on my face and my head hurt a bit.
Just thought I'd share.

I went back up the hill to get the plate from the van, but I didn't have
my phone and one guy was just milling about (swearing) near the driver
door, so I just let it go...
But you're right, I probably should have gotten the plate.
