I’m very proud to announce that M Steel Cycles will be supporting me again this year. The guys were brilliant last season, particularly Chris in the workshop who was always there to help with any last minute pre race tweaks and the legendary Doctor Dave for being supremo do it all bloody nice guy but also bang on when it comes to supporting a 24hour race. It’s great to be associated with the shop again this year who do so much community work through Dave who goes out to schools, workplaces, you name it, getting people on to bikes. The shop have provided me with a Trek 9.8sl beauty of a race rocket which as you can see I’m very excited on unleashing this season.
More on that to follow but it’s definitely a race weapon (hence the tongue in cheek pic) but amazingly fun on the downhills as well which, let’s face it, is the only reason to ever ride uphill! As you can see I was rather pleased to get my hands on it!
Whinlatter on sunday is where it all starts. After a couple of weeks of a new job down south and 34miles (each way) commute a few days a week the legs needed some serious physio attention this week so who knows what to expect race performance wise. Just looking forward to racing the new bike for the first time and enjoying the trails in the Lakes.
