are you stretching before hitting the hill? how in shape are you? try playing around w/ your stance width. it's personal preference (i'm 5'8" w/ 23 " width 15/-15). sometimes i will get that feeling if its one of my first runs of the season but i power through it and usually goes away after a couple runs. drinking water helps too.

Yeah, upper legs just sounds like a general fatigue issue.

Although it might be caused by being out of shape, it might also be caused by crouching too much in your riding stance. Standing up straight is bad, mkay? But crouching too low is also bad, mkay?

If you have someone with you on the slopes, have them look at you as you ride and then have them tell you how you compare to some random person. That'll at least give you something to work from.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

I had a a friend who was having a lot of the same problems you're describing. Turns out, his stance was WAY too wide.

There are lot of less active people in worse shape than this guy who don't get the same problem. If it was just a case of him not being in shape he would be fatigued quickly and ache in more than that one specific area.
