I'vefailed to secure a ride for Mayhem so might look to doing it on the singlespeed. What are the climbs like? I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to climbs but can drag myself up with the right gears (obviously an issue with SS)

Who cares about the weather - it can't be worse than the last two years, surely...?!

Plus the fact I've got lots of new team mates who must be dying to experience a 3am mudfest... 8)

Kev - don't forget my Yeti shirt and I won't forget your Manitou 700c's...

Guaranteed to rain.

Suffering is part of the experience.

Been out riding tonight and "it went ok"

We'll see how we get on next week.
