hey, just got back from Alpe D'Huez, and guess what?, the old girl is still in one piece!! It wasn't as bad as every body reckoned, in fact it was bloody good fun, yeh the rocks where a little on the sketchy side, but there was so much more to it than that, fast flowing single track, flat out wooded sections, long traverses....

I'll give you a full run down in the mag, but i had no mechanicals or flats, while everybody and his dog were repairing punctures, mechs, shocks, etc...!! I bagged a 23rd in qualifying, but an awful snow section dropped me down to 193 in the race.
