Okay so it's not that far back, in fact it's the day before the Singlespeed Worlds in Rotorua. Graeme Simpson had organised a go-cart race between Carl Patton (from NZMTBR), myself and Chris Southwood (from Australian Mountain Biker), and The Stig aka Mike Metz crashed the party. I thought I was gonna suck hard so I brought Trek rider Ross Schnell in as a backup Spoke driver but the powers that be insisted it was to be a four horse race. The Stig won, followed by Chris (I reckon he's half my weight, well maybe two thirds), then me, and Carl, well he was last (a bit of super D roll reversal).
Amidst the team video's and press releases we thought we got in touch with a bunch of racers that caught our eye and would, no doubt, give us their honest opinions surrounding the EWS in Tasmania.
