great pictures Ed - looks like a great ride and good fun post ride too. I heard the hotels weren't up to much though :lol:

Sure i remember Jon (GTetc) from the old Thetford MTB winter series riding for Pro-Circuit? You still got any of the forks mate?

My god.....someone remembers the old Pro Circuit days! 8)

And now everything fits into place after Orange Ed explained the Mad Cow element of your name; Mad Cow Racing intit!! I now remember you from the Thetford circuit :D

Sadly no forks. Frustrating as I had had quite a few sets BITD :cry: They were a bit Manitouish though werent they! If I'm honest we did receive a letter from Answer/Manitou suggesting we 'change' our design a little or their legal team may write to us! :shock:

All I have left from the Pro Circuit days is my full team kit, one of our front hubs, a set of rigid forks (on my For Sale thread) and A LOT of bloody good memories...... :wink:

hi guys...apologies for the delay in posting after what was a great weekend...think i've just recovered from sleeping in my car..now i know why airbeds were invented! Just wanted to say I had a great ride, a few falls along the way (thanks to my over inflated tyres). :oops:

I must admit the wheel-wash ruts were a challenge...bog snorkling here we come! But overall, great place, great people anf great Ale....yes, you heard it here first....I LIKE REAL ALE!!! :shock: :shock:

Lookin forward to the next one already...bring it on!

Longy :D

glad you could come! I drove past where your car was parked at about 8am on Sunday so you must have been up early!! Rain made a racket on the roof! You missed a great lunch in front of a log fire in the pub in Hereford.

Next time bring a bike bag so you can put it in the front and you don't have to be quite so intimate with it :lol:
