BUCS 2011 X.C Carnage!

What a weekend.... and to top it off, someone taped in this nasty off camber/steep corner on the x.c descent! As expected, barely anyone could get down it in one piece... so sit back and prepare to smile! www.Thisisheffield.co.uk

 I am continually astounded by how much XCers suck at riding down hills

 to be fair... it looks a bit tech... BUT... its a national uni race.. if they hung out the back & let go of the front brake far more would have got down.. or am i wrong?

XC should be hard & tech to race, not just a lung bursting climb fest ( that's what road bikes are for), respect to the course planners. more please, makes great watching... might get the interest back into XC in the UK!

 I just saw this video again. That guy is me and that was a kick ass race. A guy pulled out of the XC so i jumped in. Track was made worse considering my mates poured oil and water over the inside line haha

 At least a couple of riders cleaned it...I think tighter spandex and higher seat posts would have helped!
