A last minute decision to go to Glentress on Friday night meant a rushed tea and much scrabbling around for all necessary gear as not only was it very dark it was also bl***y cold! We eventually got going up the trail at about 7.15 pm and YES... it was cold, -3.5 . True to form and maintaining my recent 100% record I managed an over the handlebars at one of the more technical bits. Apart from a throbbing heel (how that happened, God only knows) and a grazed knee I was otherwise none the worse but my rear brake decided to play up after that to make life just a bit more difficult!
We finished at about 10.15 pm and met a couple of guys in the car park who were just finished as well and had the usual boring discussion about the merits of various lights!
On another tack, my mobile beeped at 4.15 am this morning with a photo text from Clive, who's in Japan at the moment, with a picture of him at a kieran race. For the uninitiated that's the race where everyone races round at the back of the guy on the little motorbike. More about that later.
