Suffy, despite what some people may suggest, you don't have to come off your bike when MTB'ing to have given it your all. The fact that you pushed the envelope of your ability was a great achievment.

I've seen plenty of people on their uber$ bikes decide to go around that one..

Even between the start and the end of the ride on Saturday, I could see the improvement in your skills. As I said to you on the day, it comes through confidence in your ability and that of your bike which will only come through experience. Given your limited time on dirt and on the Kula in particular, you did great!, especially when attacking the corners through the faster sections of the singletrack.
One tip though - get some lenses on your bike glasses that don't fog up
It must have been harder than necessary, picking your line through the 'haze' of your lenses!
