Back to Mountain Bike Racing (Photo Story)

First MTB race in what feels like a very very long time. A very low key affair in Bolton last Thursday evening. Some splendid snaps from Ed Rollason Photography tell the tale perfectly. What a great feeling to be racing again just two weeks after coming out of my kidney stone operation. Happy chappie.
