    Smile MacAvalanche

    Well I've gone and done it now!

    My names been pulled out of the hat and I'm one of the lucky 70 riders to get an entry into the one and only 'No Fuss Events' MacAvalanche at Glencoe. I've scrolled through the entry list which features far too many top riders (for my liking) and it looks like I might be the only rider on a Nicolai.....Ooooo the pressure .

    Suppose I better get my finger out and finish this AM of mine .

    Cheers guys. Should be a good event especially with being air lifted to the top of the mountain I just hope I don't need to get air lifted back down the mountain!

    I'll try my best to get some pics and of course I'll have my video camera running. Bring it on

    Don't worry, I've arranged for a load of us to come down for some moral support/pointing and laughing if we get enough lads with cameras at all the tricky bits we're bound to get something worthy of YouTube

    Hahaha I'm starting to get excited about this event now.

    The entry list looks like a 'who's who' of the mountain bike world! With priority given to the industry so putting 'Gravity Sports' and 'Nicolai' on my entry form must have worked!

    Aye Dipper, the good name and reputation of 'Gravity Sports' will come crashing down the hill with me .

    Stroll on! Between you at the macavalanche and me putting in a gravity-sports team to 10undertheben, GS's name will be in ruins! Maybe have to change the name to 'anti-gravity-sports' or 'scared of gravity-sports.'

    A quick update: Looks like Dipper might have an entry as well. That'll be at least 3 nic's in this historic event .

    Pimp, Nice one on the Reverb. There's no hiding money is there . How are you getting on with it?

    Letrip, Tyres? That's a good question! I'll be running 2.5 Maxxis Tyres but that's only because that's what I have left over from last years Mega.

    I think by the time you've dropped yer bike off at the top of the mountain then walked the course it'll be time to get yer arse back to the top for the start.

    I'll have the Motorhome with us so feel free to pop in past for tea, coffee and a place to hide . Especially if we get some traditional Scottish weather or the Highland plague makes an appearance.
