I'm sure a lot of you have had this happen to you: you're going at a decent clip through the corners and you're rapidly catching another rider. Corner by corner you close in, then when the guy notices you're right behind him, he starts to gas it to the max out of every corner....obviously trying to "race" you and prevent the pass. Of coure you're responsible and don't want to try passing in a turn or outbraking someone on a fairly narrow road. Anyway, you easily stay with him on the gas...then he brakes hard for the next turn and proceeds through it at a painfully slow pace. Annoying yes, but surely he knows you caught him through superior cornering speeds, and after a few corners he will move over and let you pass, right? WRONG!!!!!! This happened to me today, and it really pissed me off this time. I know, I know...the right thing to do is just stop at a lookout and let him go, wait a few minutes, and resume your cornering speed unabated. But I stayed fairly close the rest of the way up the mountain, perhaps for another 5-6 miles, and we had a little confrontation at the top. He said he knew I was there and if I couldn't pass it was my problem, and of course I said he was wasting my corners. Of course he didn't get it. So, I waited for him to start his bike and head back down. I started out in front of him and rapidly pulled away, then slowed down to let him catch up, then pulled away (about 10 times) and I did it in a way that he could see that I was cornering faster. Maybe I was wrong to do that and should have just avoided him completely, but sometimes it just gets to me.
