that was the Klein full suspension. I reckon on a lighter bike and giving it 100% I might get it down to 1.10.

Phew :roll:

I first pictured a hillside strewn with building site refuse, bricks, breeze blocks etc. Dug in concrete on a farm track i'm used to, we got a lot of that round here.

I've found myself a trainning circuit, mixture of B-road, farm/forest road and single track with steep climbs, descents, mud, roots, loose surface gravel etc. Not timed myself yet but its a great SS workout.

Should I ever get down Grantham way, I'll have to get you to show me around this circuit of yours :D

:) You should run a 'what's missing in this picture' competition.

I assume the oven gloves are in the wash, buried or hidden. :D
