DISCLAIMER. MOUNTAIN BIKING CAN BE DANGEROUS. YOU JOIN US AT YOUR OWN RISK.

SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Its only Mayhem

Hi guys n gals, Ive just had some bad news,one of my riders who is a downhill geek has just broken his shoulder, so I really think he wont be competing at mountain mayhem with my team 'epping over 35'. We are a mixed team that are going out there to have a good time and enjoy the race,so no pressure. We are seeking a rider male or female who is able to stand in if needed, 18th,20th, June Eastnor Castle deer park.Oh and you dont have to be over 35! ha...ha....

Re: Its only Mayhem

I'd be up for it, having a good time and enjoying the race sounds about my level!

Cheers,

Jonathon

Re: Its only Mayhem

Thanks Jonathan for your interest, we have a Rider who is willing to race with us now, however would you be interested as a stand in if any probs that could/may arise?.How about a team for the Thetford mtb dusk til dawn which is later on in the year?. It would be nice if we could get a team together for that one,for us slower pace Riders but still keen ones. Maybe Pasty Tom would be up for that one too?????. Thanks Shelton.
