Leaving aside excuses - bikes not ready (check), don't own a tent yet (check), been ill/feel like I'm getting a cold (check) what are everybodies targets for Mayhem?

Team B - myself, Heathy, Jango and Birdman are aiming for a minimum of 24 laps. Do they drug test at Mayhem :?

OK, I need a M10x1.5 canti stud for the Fat, then that bike needs testing
Need a DiscDrive spanner for Goat (currently like a pringle after one ride..) then that bike needs testing
Rocky needs forks servicing, new BB, new pads, new cables, then that bikes ready.

Best I get in the garage.

The Sports Casuals are aiming to do just one more tantalising lap than any other Retrobike team or the soloists/onanists - purely for bragging rights you understand, as we wouldn't wish to be tarnished with an ugly competitive streak... :wink: :lol:

Sure we'll start off casually slow, but come the graveyard stint that sorts the men from the gorillas, we'll be putting in the miles with metronomic regularity, leaving the rest to suffer like beasts in the fields (to coin a phrase...;-) ) as they play catch up come daybreak on Sunday...

Sounds familiar :roll:

DBR needs new cables, chain and cassette fitting, oh and pimpy yellow pedals :oops:

'Tomac' FRO needs seatpost, tyres and rear mech fitting (when they arrive)

Ultimate - a bridge too far me thinks. I'll bring it to Mayhem '09 :lol:
