Nice one GusGus, BK and Pizza! Proper larding it!

Deserved after the day we had though, great ride, but I haven't had my arms /hands/fingers and shoulders ache like that for years!
Also a great reminder that rim brakes on fast wet downhills makes things entertaining for sure :lol:


Quote of the day has to be..
'I F&$%*£@ hate duckboard'
..closely followed by a trip to the reeds :lol:

:shock: :lol: :lol:

In places it was just excellent. But then some was just like a BMX track just right for the 2007/08 bikes with their 6'' travel :twisted: Just pointless. Wales was just stunning in more ways than one :wink:
It was good to see every body again. No new faces :(
The British cycling team team could do with smiling too. still saw what they had to ride. No wonder they look pissed off. :lol:

A few rather poor pics here > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/mai ... =x0511c0b4

If anyone has any betteer then post them here or send them via email.

The riding was great, despite what Tony says.

Highlights for me include

-Heathy making it count on the fox
-Wu's freeride ephinany
-Motorbike style spinning grips
-Tintins commentary on the trails and 'duckboard'
-Steve's Polo. And disc brakes.
-The rain
-Heathy making it count on the M4 :shock:

cheers to everyone who made it out on what was quite a wet day. Cheers also to Gump for organising.

Top day fellas yet again, despite the miserable weather. I'm really surprised i got down in 1 piece, given canti's are not made for that :shock: Thats some hardcore trail around there :wink:

My fave bits....

Tintin rocking up with a rigid trimble and a 1.5 conti cross country tyre up front :?

Waiting for Gus Gus early on, only to find that he'd changed again then back :shock: He had a complete change of clothes in his pocket :roll:

Gus Gus faffing with his computer, making Klien mad chris stack it into a pool of water :lol:

The looks on the faces of the "Free ride posse" :lol:

Passing Tintin and hearing " I hate F£%*ing duck board, whats the fu*k&ng point" :lol:

Steve's stripped out polo-ex rally car, awesome, just what you need after a battering like that.

Brilliant day chaps....until next time :D

looks like you all had a good time - wish i'd been feeling healthier cos i'd have loved to have come along. unfortunately i succumbed to the pub and the rugby (too ill to ride for 3 hours and too ill to drink a pint - not the same thing), had a few too many and broke a finger :(
