I've gone part-way through Diablo a couple of times, and stopped after maybe 20-30 minutes of attempting one particular obstacle. First it was the vertical wall with the two fences after it, then it was the boulders. So I thought I'd give it another go tonight. With copious use of Lestropie and QcChopper's youtube videos I eventually made it past those damn rocks and started on the rest. Fault after fault after fault, but making slow but steady progress through each part, I had one eye on the clock. It was past 56 minutes and I was starting to get worried
wasn't looking ahead in the videos so didn't know how how much of the track was left). I drop down, hop over a little barrel ("this must be a trick...") and smack my head on the plank ("ahh, that's the trick"). Drop down again, over the barrel, full speed ahead up the ramp, and I jump...
...never to land. There was a pause, and for an instant I thought "oh wow, it's loading some kind of cutscene to tell me how awesome I am". Instead just a mid-air freeze frame of my long-suffering rider, battered and bruised, leaping eternally into the unknown. Slowly, with heavy heart, realisation dawned; for the first time ever, Trials had crashed on me. Deflated, I check the videos and realise that it was the last bit of the track.
380-ish faults and 58 minutes, I finally had a place on the Diablo leaderboard. No more. Trials is a cruel mistress.
