2 out of 5 geeks didn't chicken out of the drop off although to be fair, we should let Purley off.
He was man of the day - fully rigid (oo-err) and wearing a motorcycle helmet in warm conditions. He didn't fall once. Props and skillz!
Cheers to Reluctant for leading the way. I could catch him on the climbs but he was a whippet downhill. Best bits were:
Keeping up with the youngster on his 1999/2000 Kona Chute. Quote one of his mates "oooh look he's being chased by his team-mate"
All of us re-doing that bit of downhill with the table tops - defo showed we still had it
The unmistakeable sound of secretsquirrel "having fun" at the corner I came off at last time in the Labyrinth after I'd shouted "this is where I came off".
Stacking it on the first corner of the red downhill section in front of everyone
I was having so much fun on the Manomano I couldn't help go for that extra blue loop and if I had the time I would have gone red again as well.
Was very good - although I though some of the nastiest bits of the blue we're in the first five mins - especially as I decided to follow you for a second run! Gave up with jelly legs after the first 2 sections and had a bacon sarnie instead
Good work for giving it a go although a bacon sarnie was a good call. My tummy was rumbling like billy-o by the time I got back onto the train. Speaking of which, I guy on a modern suss got on as well. 29er - it was f8cking huge and dwarfed my horse. I know which I prefer!
Let's do it again soon, there or somewhere else.
