Just back from Red Bull Mountain Mayhem.
Very tired (3 hours sleep in the last 60-odd hours), very sore, and slightly sunburnt.
A fuller report will appear later.
A nice article about the footy.

Sums up my feelings nicely.
The Red Bull Mountain Mayhem looms ever closer, so I went out last night for an intensive training session. This involved lager, red wine, whisky and an overly hot curry.
We’ve had quite nice weather the last few days, although it’s set to be cloudy and wet for the weekend. Typical.
Didn’t get too far on the Jack Flash, only rode for about 45 minutes. The chain-device decided it didn’t like being fixed in place and started rotating around the bottom bracket shell so I cut the ride short and headed home. I’ve now refitted the chain-device and hopefully it will stay in place a bit better now.
Went for a quick potter on the Inbred today, mainly to check out the saddle (Oktavia Genuine Gel from the Stiffee), and the cleat position on my Axo shoes.
After that I watched the last hour or so of the Le Mans 24 hour race, then visited my grandmother in hospital.
I’ve just dug the Jack Flash out, once I finish my mug of tea I’m going to go for a potter around on the Jack Flash for a bit of fun.
Laid most of the patio today. Hands are a bit sore now. Didn’t ride a bike at all which may or may not be a good thing.
I stocked up on plenty of more food for Red Bull, hopefully I won’t starve.
Wayhay. Axo replaced my Cortez 2’s with new ones.
