ive ridden in gravel plenty, it has its moments. end of a long ride for you, maybe a lil stiff, and of course the anticipation / nervousness you already have will be compounded. how hard is this turn and how much of an incline at the same time?
By no means, dont go gettin all dirt track on us, but you should carry just a touch of speed. have your inside leg ready to help you out...stay off the front brake and try to do it steady in 2nd gear in case you stab the throttle on accident if you start slidin.
