Ah yeah I found it really hard to carry any decent speed to get up without a grind. I could have done the whole outside inside outside. But I didn't want a faster rider come up behind me without me noticing and me taking them out. I would have dropped about 30seconds each lap waiting for groups to pass me so I wasn't holding them up, the answer is to ride faster for next year :paranoid:

You are all world famous! Thank-you for your rhetoric on this whole forum. I combed through all 17 pages of it to lift useful quotes to create the story which has been now been published on a much more international stage at CX magazine in USA. :D

I had some good input from Wazza - we collaborated really, to make this story. Of course Greg Gibb provided the photos which tell the real story better than a thousand words of course.

Jeepers Mel, what sort of inconsiderate bastard would leave you to faff around with their bike while they took off to the zoo? Did they not realise how late that would make you to the race start?
