    How many tubeless issues?

    HT550 is brutal, but really beautiful. I didn't finish due to a dodgy knee, but I intend to go back in the next year or two and ITT it.

    Qualifying for the group start is going to get harder and harder and interesting in these races booms and Alan is very selective.

    For those that have or want to ride ultras, this guy has an interesting take on endurance, life and suffering. He's hardcore, would like to see what he could do to some ultra bike races. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvWB7B8t­XK8

    Yeah, it's only keyhole, so they said a week or two not doing much, then low intensity for a few months. Which is better than what I've been doing recently anyway (nothing really)...

    I've seen a few physios, all of which tell me it's not something they can fix. One Orthopaedic surgeon told me it would eventually wear away, but the op is best to prevent the lock ups from happening in the short term.

    It locked up in July, I've had the NHS pass me around 4 people to 'feel' my knee. Finally an MRI! Probably keyhole to clean up a frayed meniscus that occasionally gets trapped in the joint and locks the knee for about 4 days until it frees itself. And fuck it's painful. Basically no races until it's fixed :(

    I feel like a fool. I might cry. I have an MRI on my fooked knee today though, so there is hope.

    I just watched the "Divided" docu from Adventure Syndicate, what a waste of fucking money. Cringey annoying bollocks. How many times do you need to see someone dancing like an ADHD child next to each state sign.

    To be fair, I should have known not to spend that fiver, my own fault I guess.

    Yeah, I barely follow the threads these days. I followed you and skinny on TCR and a friend of a friend on instagram, that was it. Once skinny finished, I switched off :p

    What we really need is a goochcam
