Lets set the scene…

World Champs in 2007 Fort William.

I had had a horrendous race, battling a huge ankle injury and barely being able to make it to the start line. My run went shockingly, I slid out on one of the top wooden bridges and slammed on my seat really hard, the bolt broke and my seat came off the bike.

I managed to ride down the rest of the track, albeit very slowly, then for some reason decided to still do the big jumps on the motorway section leading into the finish, the seat post stuck up ready to impale me.

Luckily it didn’t but as you could imagine I wasn’t in the best of moods and got straight on the beers to drown my sorrows.
