Further to your recent comments regarding your intentions toward cyclocross racing this season, may I kindly point out the following
A) Leaving important bike repairs, of which you were aware, to the morning of a race, is not advised.
B) Having to drive to a bike shop for replacement parts on the morning of a race, is not advised.
C) Driving to a race expecting to easily fit said parts in good time before the race, is not advised.
D) DNSing a race and driving home in a cream puff because you completely failed to fit said parts, is not advised.
All in all, your actions (or should I say ‘lack thereof?) on Sunday and on the days prior, were inexcusable.
Are you aware of the cliché fail to prepare: prepare to fail?
Well never have I seen a better example.
I understand you intend to race on 29 November?
Well, as the saying goes, get the finger oot, don’t be a prat, and make sure you are ready.
Yours in cyclocross
