Cannock Chase / Stile Cop

Went up to see Bobby Mac (and Nick) today, rode from Stile Cross (black run / downhill area) over to the Chase and back. Was an awesome ride, with some bone dry trails.

Can't believe the size of the jumps those Midlanders are taking on these days...

Wooburn Bombhole

A preview of the new bomb hole Rich has found in Wooburn woods...

cheddar Bikefest

Si and I survived the Cheddar Bikefest yesterday, without any mechanical or falling off :)

Was an awesome day - pretty tough - two massive climbs to start with, flinty and rooty - then a single track decent. Si and I were both chuffed with how the bikes performed!

5hours of 20-25minute laps kept you on your toes. We fitted in 6 laps each, which at race pace, was enough! my legs started to cramp on the last lap (even though i had taken on 1.5l of water, 1.5l of energy drink, 4 gels and an energy bar).

Reckon we should get a few more pairs involved next year - could even do an overnight stay as it is set behind a really camp (static caravan) site.

Good work Ssi.
