Yes, tractor tyres will be useful down on the farm. Maybe you could install a winch on the front too? Will be able to pull you out if you get stuck in the mud. :eh:

I'm going to try to thread some toe spikes into my shoes for the run up... my shoes aren't threaded for them. :huh:

I chose a sensible shade of Black, I'll have enough trouble keeping that clean :crazy:

Riding the new bike means I should strip and rebuild it with the correct group and wheels this week, plenty of time :lol:

With my pathetic barrier technique of the last few all races someone told me I needed to practice cleaning the barriers.
So I cleaned the Solo and made the Spoken one, for the life of me I can't see how that is going to help dismounting on race day :eh:
