The first round of the Fully Sussed SW MTB races was on Sunday and it was in Redruth, so really local to us despite the lack of mountains.
John and I went along and raced. When did XC racing get all techy? The race was in an old arsenic quarry, so full of really steep stuff. The added risk of poisoning just added to things. Yes, it was that cold most people had tights on, including me.
