Now how can i start without saying im stunned, it was in deed i who was on my knees helping out this madman who kept muttering things like i need to go faster and talking about losing time and laps which i found totally bewildering and knocked me for six but i soldiered on even with these mutterings of madness to see if he had better equipment than me, i must say i was going down a path which i knew would lead to satisfaction due to i had DI2 on me Klien so all was good. I must admit though the guy was looking a bit stressed when i informed him that it did not matter if it took us 20 minutes to fix his bike due to us now being on blackmans time (which means take all day) this seemed to send him over the edge. I cannot understand why the guy could not remember a 6ft blackman on his knees in the woods in lycra at 3 in the morning with a stars and stripes top and a brightly coloured klien plus the smell of a brewery. Let me say it was emotional to see a grown man have a tear in his eye when we found a spoke sticking out of his tyre, i just thought this was the end for the man and it was time to protect me klien cause i thought the man was gonna explode and steal me bike, but bless the man he got the job done and went off into the distance still muttering, i dont know if this was sheer relief at fixing his bike or getting away from me still trying to explain that life is all about chilling and doing the retro thing which is doing the least amount of laps in 24hrs
Any123 you are a star! I think blind panic is my excuse lack of recognition, sheer fury at one stupid stick binning years of effort! (sad but true). It turned out ok in the end http://www.xcracer.com/viewblogpost.php?blog_id=533
Now Di2 off-road sounds interesting, but I had a look in my dictionary and still don't know the meaning of "chilling"......
Pleased to see from the thread that a good time was had by all.
Clearly based on your reputations I was lucky not be caught in the dark with my (very retro, from the chopper relaunch) electric-blue Raleigh "Every boys dream" sloganed tights!
