MTB HotCup 2007 NCK Tysker Plantagen (Hillerød)

I was in a cycle race last night. Round 1 of the MTB HotCup 2007. It was held at the NCK Tysker Plantagen (Hillerød).

Well, I didn't win, but I don't think I came last... Managed two laps, and as I crossed the finish line, a deliberately narrowed zig-zag so an RFID system could take out times, someone crashed into the back of me...

Had a spectacular crash just after the start, right in front of a camera crew that I'd been chatting to earlier. Cleats jammed in the pedals so I was still attached and holding onto the bike when I ended right-side up at the bottom.

"If that ends up on the editing room floor I'm sending it to Worlds Funniest Videos." I heard one of them shout laughingly as I worked out which day of the week it was.

Buggered the bike up and I bent bits so I was stuck single speeding with the chain dragging, slapping and sucking for most of the course. Have a lovely collection of cuts and bruises, yet I feel great!

A picture of me with the usual stupid look on my face Why do they always take a picture of me with a silly grin? Do I go about with a grin all the time? Maybe...

A Video but not the video, or maybe one has to buy the whole DVD? Dunno. I'll be back on this point.
