Cheers.... leaving it at home today robbed me of a better photo shoot, but as I’m currently in Scarborough A&E with suspected cracked ribs and my purple Antaeus is at home looking the worse for wear it was probably a good idea... :cry:

I don’t think any of us bounce as well as we did in the 90’s

What happened did you bail out or take a dive over the bars ?

Bet you ache this morning !

Over the bars.... I took our “back up bike” the purple ‘94 aluminium Antaeus.... & whilst it’s smaller frame makes it a good spare for both me & the lad, it does mean my COG is already a bit forward and it’s near vertical head tube and simple quadra 10’s all add up to me leaving it stuck on the trail whilst I flew through the air!
Tucked my hands/arms in & aimed to roll through it but it was still a bloody heavy landing.

Sort of... Jimmy’s Go-pro was shaken so much it droops just at the crucial moment, but he does get me crawling around desperately trying to get my breath back :facepalm: no major damage just two cracked ribs. :oops:
