Hello you crudfestless losers!

Got back to Leeds a couple of hours ago, thanks to Richie 63.

Had a fooking AWESOME weekend, thanks to everyone! Really good meeting up with you all. Sorry for slowling people down on the climbs and sorry for slowing people down on the descents. My bruise is a beautiful shade of purple and still nicely swollen, my wrist is still hruting, but I got down Inners without falling! :D

I'm sure people will be posting pictures soon, for those lucky enough to have facebook, here's my right arm (with Squarepants in the background :lol: ) -

  • More crashes Richie?!
    I got a nice vid of you popping into a ditch for some sideways action lmao!

    Btw.. could someone add me back to the CC FB group?!
  • bails87bails87 Posts: 13,317
    I'm back too. Knackered but it was well worth it. Thanks all for an excellent weekend, especially CWNT for organising and Richie for letting us smoke out his car! We'll have to do it again.

    I'll put my photos up here seeing as I'm not in the FB group.

    Amazing weekend!!

    Got back home at 7:30pm after dropping the Cat at Liverscouse Docks for some Hooker action...

    James & Ben - understand you had a long drive back, but you missed out!! The DH was superb - alright I admit that I only did Make or Break 4 times, but that was my comfort zone well & truly pushed - managed to improve throughout the runs and Strava tells me that I'm 53rd out of 283 people down the Cadonbank section.

    Glad everyone (so far) is back in one piece, you'll need that hot bath Ritchie!! My eye's beginning to swell up and I'm starting to look like I've been battling with some of the finest from Caz & Andy's home town!! Have got away with it with the misses though, she expected me to be in a much worse state.

    Looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos, especially the ones of us getting massive air, hitting the Gnar and being generally quite rad.
  • I know am gutted... If we had 1 more night in GT would have def stayed :(

    You lot will have to come down here next time... Afan, Cwmcarn and FOD to blast round - plus all the hidden away stuff!

  • Richie, I thought you saw Maddie in the ditch? Figured thats why you went for a closer look! (screen shot from one of the only vids that worked haha!)

    Hey homos!

    Just got back now. Pics to follow soon.

    Yes Richie did an excellent getoff on make or brake near the top going otb on a double and ending up in a ditch with his head on sideways (didn't manage the full rotation so the dutch judge marked him down). Keith did a splendid dismount on some slippy boardwalk, and Mark managed a nice one on Spooky wood. In all 3 cases I was the one following.
    Some say I was riding round with big sticks in my bag to throw in peoples wheels. All I know is that when we came to do the BBQ, we had no messtins.

    Pics:

    Started on thursday with a Peaks Ride:

    Richie and Keith looking at something in a ditch:
    crudstock005.jpg

    We had ice-cream, and I had a phallic Calippo, which I didn't eat with a knife and fork, thus making me gay for a day, these 2 seemed very excited at that prospect:
    crudstock003.jpg

    Richie didn't seem to understand what this strange thing was, it confused and aroused him:
    crudstock001.jpg

    Next day, we start the drive to Scotland:
    crudstock007.jpg

    This is Scotland:
    crudstock009.jpg

    and this is a man wearing a skirt on the border blowing into a bag with some sticks in it. I think he might have been mental, so I stayed in the car:
    crudstock010.jpg

    Finally we arrived, and basecamp crud was assembled. Thanks to Richie for providing the 5* Tent:

    On Panorama tonight:

    Summer in Scotland:

    Somewhere along the way, a bike ride broke out, which seemed like a novel idea:

    A rare picture of Richie not crashing:
    crudstock030.jpg

    Then we decided that what we really needed to do was completely ruin someones new car with smoke from an open fire, but who ever would let us do such a thing???:

    He says he crashed, but I think the moths have been at it:

    Also cheers to Caz & Andy for their guiding skills and good humour... and to everybody else who eat & drank, rode in ditches and generally made it a legendary weekend... looking forwards to the next one already....heres to awesome riding with a great bunch of C.U.N.Ts - thats crudders united in new trails of course :lol:

    Actually I just spotted Richie in the back of this picture. Had you just been in another ditch?

    You look like you're about to beat the living shlt out of your bike. :lol:

    Just got in my car to get a sarnie for lunch and it stinks of woodsmoke and there's also a faint aroma of melted plastic tarpaulin...

    I can't (or don't want to) imagine what Ritchie's Disco is like inside - his poor family when they have to drive to Morzine in it next week :)
  • thekickingmulethekickingmule Posts: 7,957
    Update on the injuries: The nurse (not worth a photo sadly) thinks I've just jarred my wrist, which may have bruised the nerve in my hand, but it should be better within 6 weeks. The bruise, well, even she was impressed by it, it covers half of my forearm now and is still swollen
    539021_10151952152880543_2043963974_n.jpg

    Ritchie's Disco didn't smell too bad really. Every now and then there was the faint smell of a BBQ. Mmmmm
