winning sports class grundig world cup plymouth 1998, 5th sports class national champs builth wells 1998 (was 2nd till some flid crashed into me & totalled my f.mech
winning welsh champs 98... yet minutes later having the title taken off me as my license had expired & given to the bloke who was 8mins behind me!
looking back I'm not sure the time spent training/ recovering was worth the effort? I'd prefer to spend the money on a foreign mtb hols & suffer at alltitude instead
greatest sence of achievement in any ride/race is my mental killer loop ride. cwmcarn to penyfan & back over the mountains. 85miles, 17000ft climbing, (according to my mates GPS thing). did it in 7hrs last yr & felt wasted for like a week!
these days I'd prefer to "clear" a mega technical trail or drop (like sundays vert to overhang! to vert drop)
I've never had a sence of pride from actual bike ownership? mainly as I buy bikes for me & not for others appreciation
I mean I like my bikes, but wouldnt say I'm actually proud of them.
