4 seasons in one TT…..

A few people have asked me about how long it takes to write these TT reports.  My answer is that you can’t pitch up home ten minutes after the race, warm up the computer and wing this gig.   The race results, CTT affiliations, Lincsquad’s members list and weather details need to be scoured.  We always quickly trawl through social media for rider opinions and talking points.

Team Clements tackles the Puffer

Two years ago I did the Strathpuffer solo for the first time and said I would never do it again but after a few months, when the feeling finally returned to my toes, I made a few notes of what I would do different, IF I did it again.


For those who are not familiar with this event it is a 24 hour mountain bike race held in the Highlands of Scotland in January, where competitors can compete as a team of 4, in pairs or if daft enough solo.
