Rough Ride 2008 (7 of 11), originally uploaded by Alex Leigh.
.. so am I. More when I’m less distracted by beer and food. In summary:
Weather: Damn Hot. A bit too damn hot really.
Course: Last descent and singletrack great. Rest of it made up of mainly grass – both upwards and downwards. Plus some road. So, erm…
Post Ride Food: Rubbish. Veg Curry? I WANT THE BACK END OF A RECENTLY DEAD COW IN A BUN!
74k course details: No idea, sloped off, like the wuss I am, and did 48k variant.
Other riders: Occasionally amusing, generally pedestrian downhill. I’m not quick but they were glacial.
Doing it again: No.

yeah yeah yeah,. never doing it again,. blah blah.. you said that last time. . .
No really. Last time it beat me, this time it just bored me. I’m getting old, who knows how many riding days left – not spending any of them schlepping up endless grassy hills to be stuck behind the “can’t ride for shit club” going the other way…
Results are up… you got 96th out of 517 riders on the 48k course. Nowt wrong with that.
You see if I hadn’t spent 15 minutes loafing in the sunshine waiting for the boredom to fade, I could have made – what – top 80 😉
Frank was a minute and 6 places up, whole nearly ten minutes up the road was Nig in 59th. And we were really slack!
Andy: 25th in the long race. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Alien 🙂
