red bull hill chasers bristol 2011

Here’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for, 5 minutes of unadulterated energy pop fueled hill racing! Actually I only saw one can of Red Bull all night, there were no freebies or anything, Red Bull must have been hit pretty hard by the VAT increase.

Like I said in my last post the roadies took this VERY seriously, like their lives depended on it. They were all on rollers before racing and just generally uptight. Kieran and Ed, the two local fixed gear boys racing did really well, I can’t help but think that if they had taken it as seriously as the sportsmen then they would have dropped the roadies like a sack of spuds. Superted’s lockring slipped out of the gate and Tom La Marche was rocking tyres so wide that I’m surprised he got up the hill at all, amazingly he won his first race. Anyway, watch…
