A New Hope – Race Report

After last race’s shit show I vowed to get my bike in top working order. A new front chain ring, cleats and one stolen seat post and seat from my road bike and Bessy was good to go. Unfortunately last Sunday I woke with a unexpected hang over and a sore throat. A sore throat could only mean one thing, […]
