a weatherwatch and such things

Filed under: bikes — dgpowell @ 2:31 pm

First up: Mountain Mayhem this weekend, so here’s the ubiquitous weatherwatch for it:

bbc
uk weather
met office

so far, so dry!

Big thanks go out to Jason (and son, obviously) for helping out. ‘Tis much appreciated!

Entries have been sent off for SITS and Relentless24 – I’m aiming to “peak” a bit for SITS, instead of trying really hard at mayhem and getting wound up with a million numpties on the course! (Should have a spangly new bike by then too 😉 ) and relentless24 sounds like a lot of fun – proper mtb course, scottishland scenery and maybe a midge or two…

  1. Well, he can just as easily clean 2 bikes as clean one. If you need motivational slogans shouting at you though, look elsewhere…

    You’ll not get much help from me though 😉

  5. nah, dropped out after 8hrs, wasn’t really “on it” and didn’t want to knacker my stomach.

    actually had quite a nice time chilling/nattering to people/drinking coffee/watching other people suffer 🙂

    just got confirmations for SITS and relentless through, so i’ll give it the beans at those races instead 😀

  7. If your not in the top 3 you’ve lost so shouldn’t be on the podium. Don’t tell 2nd and 3rd they’ve lost too though ;0)
