They are for the Mercredi CX team bikes!
I've mostly just been staring since they got back to the workshop today.
Will be with me at Bespoked. If you're into the Babar vibe, think you might like the bikes bikes.
Thanks a lot. Really pleased with that - it was a hard day in that sand!
Thanks Andy + @Lolo (Petra mentioned you were there - trip looked amazing.)!
As for the bike's finish, it looks great in photos but seeing it in the flesh is something else entirely. It's like it's lit up from inside or something. @hoops killed it.
I had a shocker race.
Had started getting ill on Friday and it just got worse and worse.
But I was there, so I lined up! Fever and unable to breathe, crashed in a pole on the first half of the first lap, got ridden over by other riders. After that, I just rode on noting. Never had such dull legs. I had no kick, was standing up on the bike pushing as hard as I could and going absolutely nowhere. It was depressing. I settled down a little after 2-3 laps and ticked a couple of riders, but I was so relived to be pulled out one lap to go.
The season is still long though and I just want to get back to where I was before 3 peaks and Grinduro. Those long races demand something so different out of you.
