  • Schlick: dtm.

    Didn't see the Schlickmonster at Muddy Hell. Clearly I haven't inspired him to ride.

  • What an epic night that was. Really enjoyed it. Almost wet myself with glee every time somebody went up on that wall. Great work!

  • So much fun! Thanks Winston & Casper & co. And thanks for all the cheering.

    I want to do it again. Right now.

  • I don't. I'm broken, and am still discovering new bruises!

  • 7th ain't bad though Andy

  • 7th! good work, ap

  • Thanks. I over took Konrad so was running 6th until I crashed on the wall ride and he got past me again. My attempts to re-catch him led to me crashing again on the muddy bend, and I'm now suffering the consequences of that off (some lovely bruising on my left thigh and hip).

    What happened to Kevin Knox? He was leading for a lot of the race wasn't he?

  • Andy what bike were you riding/wearing? wonder if I saw you over in the sand...

  • Andy was riding a pink mountain bike with Hannah Montana written down the top-tube

  • I saw you Joe, rocking that flourescent waistcoat look. I was in Rollapaluza kit with (ill-fitting) red arm warmers.

    I swapped out the pink mtb at the last minute for a Everti cross bike.

    I was otherwise engaged and gutted to miss it. It's one of my favourite events of the year.

  • Ah I did spot you, and so did someone else...

    one of the nicer bikes to pass through.

    action shot from the sand..

  • The light blue frame with ENVE wheels is lovely.

  • Leo, were you DNF? I can't see you in the results.

  • timing chip didn't work properly. not sure why

  • Interference from the complex electronics of a Boris Bike?

  • (ill-fitting) red arm warmers.

    Get some Rolla ones. It is close to a minimum order.

    This was about the only part of the racing I saw....he pitted about 2/3 of way through race to change bikes, then rode into the pits on the next lap and there was no-one there waiting for him!....he rolled off again but gave up after a few metres of mud....I'm guessing punctures on both bikes?

  • Top tip: Never do or believe anything Andy/Rowhan/Hinati says to you.

    Mid-conversation with a club mate he bowls up and excitedly informs me everyone is enroute to The Regents NOW! I politely finish conversation find him nowhere and cane it down to the pub, only to find there was no one there.

    Probably for the best, was feeling a bit worse for wear. No breakfast, track and then the whole afternoon in the pub with nowt to eat leaves me questioning how I got back home on that gearing.

    Anyway amazing event, truly had a great time and saw a bunch of spills which if we're honest with ourselves is what we watch cross for. It's like NASCAR in that respect; except with cross people don't die.

  • thoroughly enjoyed setting up and marshalling Muddy Hell. I had never been before, and had no idea what to expect. Well done to everyone involved and all those who took part!

  • must say, huge thanks to the army of volunteers, couldn't happen without you....you all rock......a lot.

    Best moment for me was Alex's face when told she came second in female novice category...great ride!!
    hey winston (and caspar), well done for getting muddy hell together again. marshalling is always good (even at the the main gate / drop), met loads of mums/dads with their kids they all had a brilliant time, i'd promised to pass on their thanks. also good to see a few forum faces too. the racing was superb again, mr blobby a huge hit. sorry i didn't stay around for the strike, had to get home..

    in other news, replacing 40 metres of garden fencing at the out-laws place in banbury. equates to 300 shiplap boards and 14 kicking board / planks along the south boundary of their garden, finish tomorrow all in under three days!! the weather has been kind, a big bonfire methinks the old timber is bone dry!!

    beats being at work this week.

    cheers
