What? You expect me to read the whole thread and not just jump to the last comment? At this time of night? After some beer? Pah! :wink:

BTW, Russell.....did you ever own an AMP in Southampton? Just a hunch.....

Not the whole thread, just the last four or five posts would be nice though :)

No, I've never owned an AMP in Southampton, though I have owned some speakers in Portsmouth.

Feeling old, remember watching this and supporting Steve Douse who lived a few doors away from me at the time.

Thanks for sharing, and I am looking forward to the next installment 8)

I was riding a Clockwork Orange which I still have in original condition even down to the same tyres that I used in 89. It was a unique course with a hike up a mountain and a few rivers to ride or carry through, think I was out there for over three hours which suited me.


Were they Specialized Hardpack tyres by any chance ?

Nice to know you've still got the same bike. Bet you don't still own those pink shorts though !

Thanks, that's very kind !

I've just finished uploading the remaining 4 parts - so that's the whole hour's coverage, minus the adverts (which were fun to watch in their own right !)

Part 2 = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgXjskOJ_a8
Part 3 = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6qhnLz_8sg
Part 4 = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LjFTFh0hio
Part 5 = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GACE-6n9OwQ

After seeing this on TV, it also got me and a few mates into racing. One friend, Theo, even bought the same model MS Racing bike that Mike Kloser was using, to be just like him ! He even tried to grow the moustache at the age of 15 !

Thats ace, thanks, second "the best post in ages".

Just finished watching the second part, although should return to work, boo.
I remember the irish rider, Allister Martin that got a mention, crossing the river, from SCU races, he used to ride a bike with a rack on the back! He was super quick, I think I remember rightly that he won quite a few rounds of the SCU events back in 1993 ish.

Also still have one of the Moray Firth/ bikes of Inverness tops that a few of the riders are wearing in the 1st section!

You are right 1.5 Hardpack on front and a Mitsibushi Gripper on the back.

Excellent stuff - many thanks for posting this yessir!

Reassuring to hear (in part 2) that Sian Roberts "hasn't been interfered with".... :shock:

the only reason flyingwelshman got up that first big hike a bike was that Mr. schmoo was at the top with his big bag of jelly worms! :wink:
