Nervous! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Racing on the Saturday, and watching for the rest of the weekend. You wouldn't believe that what I am taking to a 40 minute race - a mass sprint at the start, followed by 39 1/2 minutes of trying not to be sick/crash/break a gear hanger/chain - will actually fill my Golf hatchback.

This is my first season of cyclo-cross and I'm loving it! I've taken a lot of photos, and would share these along with my thoughts, experiences etc, if it were easier to put said photos on here. :facepalm:

But there you go!

What are you lot up to?

Mike

Good luck! Aye, we have a van for races for all the stuff! Makes it a lot easier.

I'll be collecting firewood & doing work on bike builds Saturday (hopefully!)

Sunday I'm marshaling a Enduro race my son is racing in at Hamsterley Forest, Co Durham

Good man! We all have to take a turn helping out at events. And yes, I am considering getting a van, or estate car, for next season.
Belgium awaits, all things being equal :shock:

Good to see Danny Hart taking part in a local Enduro event & winning his category. Not just fast downhill - saw him going up a fireroad to the next stage - the speed he was going at thought it was someone on an ebike!
