Total domination of the Red Bull Hillchasers event in Edinburgh.
It was clear that the uphill, cobbled sprint played to all of their strengths. With just the right tweeks to their training regimens, podium places were a sure thing.
During the day they spent their time dead lifting, squatting and pressing huge weights. All the while the team nutritionalist was helping them imbibe colossal amounts of sugar, taurine and caffeine. During the evenings the team spent their time channeling Felix Baumgartner and visualising Forstermann's thighs. They left no stone unturned. Brian Jacks was drafted in to give the final polishing needed prior to the big day.
There was no need to alter the team's bikes - singlespeeds all the way. The TSPC overalls were dusted off and they arrived brimming with confidence on the start line on a frigid Edinburgh morning.
All told, things didn't exactly go to plan. An explanation will be forthcoming, but at present the team members are working with the VC Moulin psychologist to tease out the exact nature of the mal-performance. Needless to say: they'll be back!
In the meantime, enjoy the pictures and video.
