When November comes around, its time to knuckle down and get some training done!
I cycled out to Howth on the road bike with my good friend Ben Kennedy during the week, it was about a 60-70km road cycle, suprised really - road isnt as boring as you would think.
Heres a picture of Howth looking nice and sunny: - shame it pissed rain cycling there..
I have also just finished building up my new winter XC/AM BEAST! It's a Commencal Meta 5.5 with Fox 32s, and a few other trick bits. Its an amazing bike, it climbs like a hardtail and descends not quite like a downhill bike but certainly not far from it.
There was also an uplift day in Cullohill, there should be some former posts of race results ect on here from the venue. Its a pretty fun little spot so I thaught itd be worth the drive down and it was pretty enjoyable to get back out on the Downhill bike before the snow hits back.
Some footage of the uplift day with be in the next Turbett's Tales episode so wait for that!
