Ian's Splitting & Cracking ride @ the 3 Peaks CX

This is Ian just before incident no2. It was Ians 9th 3 Peaks Cyclo Cross and with some training and better weather this year he was flying. The wind on the tops made it very interesting riding just trying to keep on the bike. He had less cramp which is one of the major problems on the third hump and forgot his gels but completed in 4.47.25.
If you have a look at the photo to the right he is not riding his new Scott CX Carbon Addict because it developed a crack during training just before the event. Good news Westbrook Cycles have sorted him out a new replacement frame now. Problem no2 was the tight arse had run his rims to the limit of wear and the front one split. A lovely lady loaned Ian a replacement wheel so he could complete the Peaks. So all in it was an expensive outing but defo one to remember.
