Full write-up to follow….
A great lecture on bike design from local bike designer, Cy Turner of Cotic to an bunch of engineers at Sheffield University. He covers materials choice, geometry and has a good couple of rants along the way.
Get a cuppa, sit back and learn. The action starts about 2 minutes in.
So the 2011 race season has finally begun! December and January weren’t great months for my racing preparation. I spent most of my days and quite often nights as well, sitting behind my desk preparing for my final year optometry exams. It was all worth it though now I’m settled at my new job in Newcastle working as a pre-reg Optometrist in the eye hospital. This change in life style has freed me up some time to get back on the training program so I will be well prepared for the first big race of the season – BDS round 1 at Nant G in Wales on the 20th of March…..
Sideways action with Ruari and Swinny today…. go play!
After the Mega in Alpe d’huez we set off on a bit of a mission, digging out some of the more ‘quiet’ French alpine resorts, whilst clocking in some miles at some of the old classics aswell.
Super dry and dusty everywhere meant pushing up and filming was a sweaty task, but Rob busted a nut and we squeezed out some great shots.
This footage should of been released a while back, but on returning to the U.K Joe lost it during upload…. or at least he thought he did.
So here is the short but sweet Winter/Summer special, enjoy!
