Phew taken me a 24 hours to recover from the horrors of riding (trying) this non-tarmac business lark again ....last time was Mayhem and hopefully all being well be the next time too !!!!
I thought it was great to have the Forest of Dean back on the National calender and hopefully after yesterdays success it will stay on there for good this is mainly down to the well executed guiding from the Forest of Dean guides (James, Neil , Hayden ) The day was well run and thankfully there is still noone riding around there lost!!
Highlights for me!!
-The weather considering when I opened the front door at my house in the morning was gales and sheet rain we actually did well ...if anything was rather warm once riding
-Adrian lending me his Klein for the day to ride though according to Andy my skills brought shame on Klein owners!!
-Ed making a guest appearance while feeling ill on his Birthday!! arriving with the 1000 yard stare is a little worrying
-The boy doing so well and quite rightly receiving spirit of the ride
-The endless trails of wet slippy roots (will have nightmares for weeks!! )
-Drystonepauls closet secret !!
-The great Pub stop again recommended by James we even had our own private room!
-Spencer in the queue at pub with Etto helmet on (you had to be there!!)
-My missing burger and pudding-gate
-That horrendous section from hell straight after eating my burger (that be fantastic section to everyone else!!)
-Daz (Feetabix) skid of death at the end tearing his tyre off
-Spencer bringing the Ale and hammering the tap in the barrel with his shoe
Overall turned out brilliant and a great end to the series!
Next year we want a summer slot??
Thank you everyone who came and again the Forest of dean guides for making it happen!!
