Steeeeeep

I waited till the last minute to head to the start. The week’s cabin fever got me motivated to get out there in the end.

Perfecto

The 9.9 hardtail did the job as usual. No excuses here.

Insutanto Pasta!

Travelling to races and finding paste restaurants can be a challenge. So for hotel-ready intant pasta, here’s the 3-step forula:

STEP 1: Go to a local Konbini (convenience store) and buy a few packets of ‘instant pasta’, complete with chopsticks.

STEP 2: Boil some water in the hotel kettle and poor.

STEP 3: Add olive oil and salt and you’re ready to race.
