yeah yeah yeah, once again i get aquainted with some portaloos on a muddy field when everyone else is racing.
i think for SITS i’ll give eating “non sugary” things a go while riding, maybe that’ll help.
anyway, the race; it rained, it was extremely muddy, it was still quite good fun, i’ve no idea how i did, rich changed many sets of brake pads for me and hosed down several drivechains, they had Lancaster Bomber on tap in the beer tent, Ed played digeridoo in the woods, someone broke their leg on the chicken run round the bombhole, people remained cheerful through it all, rod changed his socks once, richpips went home to get his bike then came back to ride, brant’s moving into beef jerky territory, timk used his entire family as a pit crew, my car is coated in mud and i can’t get my shorts clean
that about sums it up
oh, and someone asked my if all endurance races were like this, i said “yes, but you learn to love it”
