Sorry for a completely off-topic post, but then again a few people who read this blog are athletically minded so it may interest them.

After a 13 year hiatus from mountainbike racing, I decided to go out and do The Vulcaniser race on Saturday, near where I live. 37 degrees Celsius didn’t make for a whole lot of comfort, and the aforementioned hiatus didn’t make for a whole lot of speed or technical prowess on my part. That said it was a whole lot of fun. Cheers to AdventureQuip for snapping a bunch of photos – here follows some of me suffering on the day!

Must be early on because I’m looking vaguely aware of my surroundings!

Sweet single-track downhill

Suffering on a not overly steep, but exceptionally hot climb

Coming in to finish a lap, feeling the heat!
