    Why not just get yourself a road bike?

    How are you getting on with the ContourGPS?

    Mine is going back to the States for repair today. 😥

    Maybe he was on a road bike with the speed he was going 😉

    I mentioned on the best descents thread that I had some helmetcam footage from Parkamoor at the weekend. I warned it’ll be crap as I was riding slow rubbish but some people asked for it anyway.

    Prepare to be underwhelmed and I’ll don the suit of flaming.

    Loving it great toy but the contour site lets it down it’s very unstable.

    Really? That’s some rough fireroads you have around there.

    I may aswell been on my CX bike I really did ride it slow. I was rather annoyed at myself but I did have a reason but still I rode really bad.

    Sorry, I’m being harsh. I’m glad you found it fun. Loved you yelp at 0:44 for clearing that rough patch!

    Nah! I don’t mind but you can hardly call that descent a fireroad if it was I wouldn’t be riding down it.

    The yelp, remember when you were a kid and you record you voice and playback how we always hate the sound of our own voice. That yelp makes me cringe. The background is you can see I was steadily overtaking the other guy, Jon, and was then going to chase down the guy in front, Andy. I had my line picked to take Jon on the corner and was watching his line to make sure I didn’t wipe him out only to look ahead and see Andy had messed up the drop off. I was then stuck to let Jon through on my line or knock him off, as you can tell we were both shouting to let each other through. So hence the yelp when it all came off a very girly yelp though.
