Need to hit the gas harder

Was an eventful first section for me yesterday, had the front tyre washout and also clipped a tree leading to an OTB. Racing Ralph tyres had no traction through the damp section of single track. After hitting the tree I had to stop and adjust the bars a couple of times. Luckily as I hit the road section to the first water stop I found a fast group to ride with. I only needed to stop for long enough to refill a bottle so left most of them behind at the stop.

Hmmmm lets do that again :)

On finishing the Angry Doctor feeling fresh and ready to keep riding I felt ready for the Scott 24hr race. The Angry Doctor also signalled how fast the race was approaching and began the panic of getting everything organised, luckily almost everything turned up. Big thanks to Gavin, Vanina and City Bike Depot for organising a spare bike for me.
