Hi Guy's

I'm sure you've all been busy cleaning your bikes down after todays wet TTT Laughing

I've just done ours and thought I'd post a few thoughts for you to check bounce


After any wet ride its worthwhile to check the tyres for those pesky little bits of flint and glass that embed themselves into your precious rubber, I find a small pointed implement is ok to remove these sunny


Its worth checking that your frame hasn't filled up with water, I poured over 1/2 a cup out of mine, after removing the seatpost, tip the bike upside down and pour it over your kitchen floor Evil or Very Mad


Wipe down with the best white tea towel and leave to dry, then re-lube after a few hours jocolor

Luke and Claire have the times today and I'm sure they will post on here soon Sleep

Many thanks to Andy for timekeeping today, I hope you managed to get back OK and also to Luke for signing the course and then pushing off with Chris Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven


Tony cheers
