Mud, Mud, Rain Broken deraliums and shitty hidraulics

This is the result of my day in the saddle at a 80km MTB race today.

Absolutely miserable day of rain and as result the course was a mud pool for most of the way.It was a fun tough race but with 20-15km left i started loosing my hidraulic brakes, that where brand new, while riding 2nd place and with no option other than walk the downhills. To call it a day my rear deralium snaped a few kms later with around 10 km to go leaving me no choice other than walk and stand in the closest road waiting for pick up in the rain freezing to death....ok death is a bit over the roof but it was really cold with no dry clothes.

I had fun tough, the course was one tough cookie but i still managed to do like 3:30 of hard riding :D

One thing is for sure after severall rides on my beautifull 10 speed MTB bike, i realized that she (yes she) doesent have racing pedigree and i love v-brakes :D

to finalize my weekend ill leave the music that isnt abble to leave my head lately
