What a fab weekend, thanks to all who made it happen.
There are loads of moments tha made it ace just a few were;
"Gus this is the A3 isint it? No A272 going West, Hmm ok. But thats Butser Hill on our right i think we are heading South towards Portsmouth.
Getting to the Pub in Neath 10 mins before they stop doing food for the eve, with a call from steve as he thinks he has run out of rocket fuel for the polo Eat or Petrol run??. All ok though only a HT lead popping off!!
The lovely staff at the pub
and someones look what she answered with "oh im 16!!"
Fab location, rain that moves faster than you can ride, the 10 mile climb followed by a 10 mile down (funny that). Passing a group of guys on the Dh them with with full face helmets, body armour and full on 6" travel DH bikes, me on a 19 year old rigid Klein!
I do feel a little broken today though, my arms and shoulders ache along with my ribs (cheers Gus, you know where you can stick your "Look how i can see you computer in the dark")
My bike; on cleaning it today i found in no particular order
Flite Ti has lost it top layer of leather!
My 217 now have a freshley milled braking surface
Rear XTR pads reduced to nothing.
NOS white Onza barends have lost any lacquer thay once had!
But still after all that an amazing ride, that i hope to do again in the summer.
