To the business of racing, and how.
Knock me down with a feather. We almost did it. Damn you comfy chairs and warm clothing.
Despite some of the heaviest rain i've seen in a long time (being a Mancunian in Cornwall, that takes some beating) which turned the course into a big slippy mess and had tents floating around the campsite, VeloCake finished 4th in the Bristol bikefest singlespeed pairs, one lap behind the 3rd place losers.
We were so close we could almost reach out and touch that 3rd place prize. (which was two new tubes each)
Thankfully though we kept our feet on the ground in the solo singlespeeds as Raoul did some stirling work, packing after 2 laps coming in last place and being on the beer by lunch time. Chapeau fella!
The highlights for me though was remebering how to properly ride a mountain bike again, sort off. quoting LL Cool J at an air cadet. Getting mistaken for Jo Burt ?? and of course meeting up with everyone after a whole year away. ahhhh.
if you don't believe me, heres the official results!
startline death march, nick racing, raoul finds only energy drink at the bar.
