Reprezentin



Well, we finished and despite our best efforts the 2 Velocake riders didn't get DFL, pretty gutted really !

and as I've said elsewhere it was it was a whole heap of fun, trundling along, enjoying the scenery, enjoying the descents, realising that a good, well set up full suspension bike makes a huge difference to how well I can descend.

The Cornish flag on the back of the jersey was recognised and we were asked if we were from Cornwall, to which we replied no but our team manager was ;-)

The company was great also, once or twice there was the threat of a sense of humour fail but it never happened, testament to a strong will :-).

Only 3 other cheeksters were there, although they soon cleared off !

Of course all of this would never happen without the will power of the folks who organise the Dyfi, much respect to those lovely people who open up their lovely trails to all comers, go out of their way to make you feel welcome and know just what it takes to make for a grand weekend.

I urge all Velocakers around the country to make the effort to get there next year, hell we could have our own campsite and everything

It's like a million, zillion miles away. :-)

I'm not quite to the 'that was awesome' phase that Steve is, yet. There were some fun bits, and some sphincter puckering ones, too.

Thanks to the best friend anyone could ask for. I wouldn't have gotten through it with out you, Steve.

WOO for mtb's.
by team manager do you mean me?
May I remind you that I'm a Mancunian.

next year sounds good, it's been ages since I did the Dyfi.
Grant it's probaly half way-ish between you and me, it'd be a great weekend.
