Guy’s Gold Cup

Web Monkey Life, racing

Morning folks, just sat at work waiting for a job to come in. I’ve got a bit of a sore head, but I’ve got a cup of the strongest polish coffee you can imagine on the go. I didn’t end up rolling in the tractor. Instead, like I said I do if I won, I was off in the pub. …

Web Monkey Life

  Sorry I’ve put bugger all up since Croft. I’ve been down the truck yard in the mornings, then working on the farm till late. We’ve been as busy as ever on the trucks, then I’ve been doing a bit of corn carting, rolling and slug pelettting on the farm. Oh well, it’s keeping me out of mischief. Well, it’s …

Saturday at Croft

Web Monkey racing

We seem to have the same problem with certain corners wherever we go and I think we’ve made a bit of a breakthrough with the way we need to go.  Fourteenth isn’t spectacular but it’s OK for me and I always go better in the race.  Everyone’s working really well and if we carry on in the same direction then …

Croft update

Web Monkey racing

Evening all, just sat at Croft. Not a lot happening other than a lot of rain. Reports say the same for tomorrow but better for Sunday. We got a few dry laps in and got a few jobs sorted. It needs to be a bit softer here and you need to get the bike set so it doesn’t wheelie as …

Downhill fast

  Fort Bill, what can I say other than, hardcore? Probably the most demanding thing I’ve ever done. Racing a downhill pushbike, down 35,200ft in six hours left me more knackered than doing a six-lap TT.Mave, Grundy and Kate came along for the road trip and were my pit crew for the day. They did a mint job, kept me …

How’s it all going? Had a change of scenery this weekend. Started with a open day at Hein Gericke in Luton. It was cool to meet a good few folks from the PB forum. All us bike folks seem to be on the same sort of wave length. I met a top bloke called Mike Davies. I’m sure he must have …

It’s been all go, getting some truck work done first thing, then off down the farm to do some corn leeding, trying to get caught up. We’re getting there though. We got 140 acres done yesterday, so we …

Quick word from Cadwell

Web Monkey racing

“The weather hasn’t helped the job, I’ve still got loads of harvesting to do and my combine blew up last night!  I’m happy on the bike side of things though.  We’re at the point where we’re making just a little change each time and we’re getting faster each time so it’s building my confidence up with the team and with …
