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.

Nomination tracker

In the interests of free and fair competition for the coveted Xmas Awards, it is only right and proper that an accurate record of punctures, mechanicals, crashes, general incompetencies, memorable quotes etc etc.

Consider it to be an honesty box and feel free to nominate yourself as many times as you like. Or as many times as necessary. I'm sure others will remind you or act on your behalf if necessary.

Dom, it is a spreadsheet, so try not to spend too long on it...

Re: Nomination tracker

Good idea tony! Just requested access to the spreadsheet. Fentasmic!

Re: Nomination tracker

Yup - great idea.

My puncture twattedness needs capturing ASAP. (Hopefully I have now put that in the past - I am using the tubeless fluid that Barry recommends!)

I have made this thread sticky (but not as sticky as Tony's phlegm last Thursday.)
