Oli Beckingsale, a leading British rider in men's cross-country mountain biking, is writing a diary for BBC Sport during this year's Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships.
Read Oli's second diary entry and listen to his interview on 5Live.
The World Champs are now in full swing up here in Fort William with a number of medals won and lost.
There are none for the Brits yet but as I write this the junior men are on course so that may change, as GB have four talented young ones in there.
As you would expect up in West Scotland, it's raining and has been drizzling pretty much non-stop for the last couple of days.
But this has affected the trade area more than the race track, as the course stands up very well to the bad weather.
Most of the track is man-made and has been designed to be weather-proof and last a number of years so that it can be used for future races and by the public.
As for me, things are going well and the days are ticking by without too much trouble or boredom.
That can be a problem before big races as you are sitting around alot killing time whilst been slightly nervous.
It's a bad combination and thankfully gadgets or a good book normally does the trick...
