Wheel swap for the Dk . The D521s brought into action, with the inevitable instant puncture....just when you thought you'd finished. Bruddy heavy. Just in time, the X717 that came off the back has a horribly cracked rim, and very concave. Did think about going out in the rain....

Stinking ride
Even caught some air and crossed up on the Treacle Hill descent :shock:
Using up one of my nine lives no doubt :wink:
Excellent planning in the pub after for MM If the other teams only knew how organised we are they would be quaking in their shorts :lol:
