4. I'm in the apex of the rut now. My leg is still extended out in front of me so if the front end pops out of the rut I'll be able to catch myself, and my left elbow is still high applying down pressure holding the front end in the rut. I'm leaning with the bike because the rut is holding my tires from sliding out. At this point I know I'm in solid and can start to focus on the end of the rut and start to look ahead.
