The greatest weeked just got better 8)

I still need to unpack and sort out the bundles of clothes, bikes, tools and more parts :roll:

Was a great weekend and feel sad that its all over now, I am honoured to have had my bike chosen as concurs winner and still cant quite believe it.

Here are some of the pics I have taken but will add more this evening when sorted.

Some of my Higlights;

- Non stop Heckling, especially JB666 with his risqué quotes at dark :lol:
- The three sock stratagy
- Leo Swayer aka Boss Hogg
- Bear outfits
- narrowly avoiding the Edwards Bear on my night ride
- all the give-aways

Thanks to all who organised and special thanks to JB666 for being SW10 team captain, Makster for doing the run, Ed for breaking in 2Me2U and Mrs Lookback for the Coffee's and Bacon Sarnie :D

I've popped my Mayhem virginity and had a great time, despite my own shocking performance.

Highlights:

Banter
Heckling/megaphone
Jenga
Judging the concourse
Hot shower at 3am :D
Full suspension on the last downhill 8)
Owls hooting in the woods in the middle of the night with the moon shining through the trees

Lowlight:

The epic fail that was lap 1 :evil:

I'll be back though :D

For those unable to hear the meglaphone / hecklermaphone thing this year due to absense, here is a sample of some of the better amplified heckles audible from about two miles across the entire campsite this year....

On top of the now legendary RB classics, Never climb on cheese and use the beard, we had...

*Nice Napsack

*Is that bike All Mountain?

*Go on Zammo

*Ro-land, Ro-land, go on Ro-Land

*Dig deep Rainman

*Go on Logchopper

*Go on Gok Wan

*Is that 5inches of fun (embarrassingly heckled at a female rider it turned out) :oops:

*Don't be all travel and no style


And my personal favourite....


*Is that High Modulous weave? :lol:


Genius.

8)

Still trying to sort Mayhem stuff out, both kit and thoughts.

Meanwhile not a bad write up on STW featuring Gravy Monster's Cinelli and DJ Bernard aka MrKawasaki in full flight. Tagline is a touch misguided though > http://www.singletrackworld.com/2011/06 ... -pics-vid/ ! I think MrK wasn't disgusted, that was just his race face.
