Absolute fantastic!!! Congrats.
Which tyres do you use on your bike? Thanks in advance.
Schwalbe G-one all round Markus. They are very good for any surface and fast on the road. They (especially rear one) don't last so long though (max 4000 km?)
Thank you James. :-)
Congratulations James, strong riding 👌
Good stuff James. The olive oil is still doing the job then !!
Amazing riding James!!
Nice stuff JJ!
Well done. Gravel is the future. We should get out for a ride when you are back and recovered.
Wow, amazing ride yet again James.
great ride JJ, better timing and I would have been up for this, are you interested in this in September https://www.theracingcollective.com/xduroscotland.html
G-ones are great tyres, worth swapping the rear to the front mid trip to get good miles out of them, and rear grip
P.S. you had a great ride in the dry, that same event in the wet would bring out a whole different range of emotions, been there ;-)
Splendid JJD...great ride.
Congrats! Unbelievable performance!
Congratulations James, impressive as ever, great result !
What the hell. You are a maschine, to finish this impressive course in such a great time.
Amazing result! Really well done James!
Thank you all :)
J P Agree with you. In the wet weather conditions it would be even more difficult. It should be also ridden with Mtb (preferably hardtail). I was on cx thus had to walk a lot.
, J P would love to ride in xduroscotland18 but difficult to get there and return back to London. Need 2 more days off from work in addition to weekend. Jason W. HAD also invited when he did the same course DIY basis but couldn't go for the same reason.
Ciaran O'Hara (DRV) The Bike General, let me know when you intend to ride. I may not be able to join you for couple of weeks as my wound on the leg was infected. Also my bike require new parts/maintenance. Keep in touch.
Mark Bulkeley, the olive oil saved our biking holiday in Crete thanks to you. I rode the bike at least a month with same and brakes were perfect. I did however get proper brake liquid filled before this race :)
JJ most riders who are serious about speed do these gravel events and find out that a 29 mtb would be better, we just dont have the gravel of the USA, wish they would drop the word......its off road
