The long awaited Goats n Chicks mates race series was on the cards, with the TAG Timing system tried and tested the date was mutually agreed over a many a mail, text and Sunday post ride coffees. August bank holiday was going to feel like an extra special stolen day more so when your out on your bike.
Mr Bikes & Miss Kipling looking after all things Hi-tech including pencil & pad, plus keeping the troops in order as the excitement built Morpheus was on BBQ duties and Mr Goat providing the race plates, Mr photo inevitably taking snaps of the day.
The crew Mr Spesh, Mr Builder, Mr Goat, Mr shorts, Mr Whistler, Mr Wheezie, Mr Morph, Mr Photo, wild card Weedon Steve & Miss Smiles the only female presence.
First section up the Time Triangle just to burn those legs in, followed by section 2- Ginger & Big Dipper sections linked in with a lung busting, leg burning, sweat inducing, lip-smackin’ climb more so when the clocks ticking, it was here that Mr Builder blasted an unassailable lead, that would last out the day. Section 3 – the longest of the day – Roots & Transition swiftly followed by the section 4 the Jamster DH run & finally the Empire Strikes back DH run to blast the day away.
Back to base for much awaited Morpheus burgers, with more French sticks than a French mans bread bin, and a selection of fine much awaited beers to crown off a glorious day, the weather was good the racing was good the company was fantastic as was the food n drink you just can’t ask for more, “Or Can you ?”
