innerleithen mtt

last tuesday saw the 2nd round in the new summer mtt series at innerleithen. organised by helen findlay and steve deas, the course was xc racing as it should be - a brutal climb and a testing descent. being a classic scottish course, it also featured a hellish muddy bit in the middle that was quicker to push than ride.

the vcm contingent was reduced to three following slight shed key problem for jac. but we still came away with two podium places - a first for (a godfather powered) anja and a third for andy. i was way down the field after blinking a contact lens out at the start of the descent. innerleithen dh trails on 1.25 eyes? really not recommend...
