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.

Mountain Mayhem - rider needed

Hey you lot,

After having so much fun last year, myself, Pat, (Chippie) Chris and Mark Needham have entered Mayhem again this year.
Unfortunately, Mark has had to pull out due to a knee injury, which means there's a place in our team avail.
If you're interested, let me know.

cheers,
Rich

Hi Rich
Jonathan is worth a try, as he was up for riding in my team when I was short on a rider.Shelton.

Re: Mountain Mayhem - rider needed

so it's looking like 8 laps each at the mo.

so 12 mile laps X 8 + no sleep = 96 miles of fun each

oh yes forgot to add the SIS Rego into the equasion.
= 90 miles of fun and 6 miles of nervous clenched buttocks.

Re: Mountain Mayhem - rider needed

I'm happy to ride, but I won't be up to Pat or Chris's racing pace.

Cheers,

Jonathon

Re: Mountain Mayhem - rider needed

Hey Jonathon,

Thanks for the offer to ride - I've been meaning to post for a few days, to let you know that the spot in the team has already been filled.

cheers,
Rich
