Mountain Bike Racing.

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.

Well done on winning although I see that John raced in a proper category ;-)

pfffffft can't you just be happy for me for once? you always have to have a pop don't you :)

simondbarnes said...

Hey, I said well done :)

Tom Levell said...

FUN!
The shame of it.

Mullerton said...

Shurrup Tom, a wins a win

simondbarnes said...

Why doesn't the pic of you biggerfy when clicked on?

Mullerton said...

Because the public can only handle that much awesomeness in small doses.

Jon Bateman said...

Blimey, I was worried I'd joined something with actual winners in, but having looked at the results I see it's merely opportunist pot-hunting. I am much relieved ;-)

Mullerton said...

What the hell is wring with you lot?
Fine next time I'll go in the elite class with the young whippets.

Jon Bateman said...

We're just jealous... I've never won anything. Although I did win the Euromillions twice this week, raking in a total of £11.70 - so suck on that!

simondbarnes said...

I'd be last or close to it in Fun class. Someone has to win though so may as well be Mikey :)

Tom Levell said...

A top end CX racer like Mikey should be in Masters.
I can't bring myself to race in Fun I'd rather get whipped by the old giffers (forgetting I'm closing in on the higher end of the scale)

Mullerton said...

Tom, I'm too old for masters (only by 6 months mind)
I'll take that as a compliment Simon.

Next time you win big Jon, remember you friends :D

Toying with doing an SXC race in vets in a few weeks.

Might do it, might not. Kind of clashes with proper Real Life [tm] stuff.

Otherwise not racing until June, which is AAAAAGES away.

Tom Levell said...

In that case yo should be super fast as your the youngest...

grant said...

Wish I had your confidence Tom but the vets here are fast as fook. :-$

Tom Levell said...

Have you seen how much I've raced recently ;0)

Steve said...

That hill looks too steep to ride a bicycle down surely?

Chapeau M!

Mullerton said...

Dam right it was. Its more like a down hill race with a flat bit :)

Or maybe I'm getting old

Bruce said...

Well done Mike I always finished nearly last in Fun!

Mullerton said...

Heyyyy hi Keith, how the divil are you?

You're always a winner to me
