I won’t see anything but my stem for the final 1km though so, I’ll have to hear about it later.

Yeah, sometimes you miss things… I tell the story about an early mountain bike race in my “career” which had a section that came out of the woods and onto a downhill paved path, before diving back into the woods on the other side. I hit that paved section and I hammered it. I was really moving. What I didn’t realize was there was a trenched stream crossing about 25 feet into the woods, surrounded by cameramen and rubberneckers. I threw the bike up into a wheelie just before I hit the lip of the drop. After the screaming and the cheering, I opened my eyes and realized I had jumped the entire ditch. I really would have liked to have seen me do that.
