Daisybank dig weekender 2012

Big thanks to all who turned up to repair Daisybank dirt jumps this weekend. It was an epic couple of days of dirt moving and packing in. I still cannot quite believe how much we achieved and how good the summer is going to be riding up there.

Introducing Megalomania

The word megalomania is derived from the Greek words "μεγαλο": megalo-, meaning large or great, and "μανία": mania, meaning madness, frenzy. It is also an excellent Black Sabbath song (see at the bottom) This is a suitable name for the new track at Bushcombe which is a speed frenzy and large open corners.

Success at Cirencester Duathlon

Congratulations to CCCC member Rachel Vicary who won the ladies category at the Cirencester Duathlon on Sunday, held this year at Charlton Park in Malmesbury.

The race, which attracted 184 competitors, was a day of XC racing with a difference - with competitors fearing a mud fest but instead being faced with snow, ice and absolutely freezing temperatures. The conditions certainly spiced up the (usually non technical!) course; a 2 mile run, 10 mile mountain bike and then another 2 mile run.

Winter training indoors - video

When people talk about winter training indoors it usually means turbo training. A few club members decided that this did not help their skills so with the help of a few cones they set up a skills course indoors.
