We took the Fat Race and Rudy Fat along to the launch of the Cyclocross.com website and 34km off road ride from the Gravesend Cyclopark in Kent. It was a tough loop considering its short distance with some steep loose climbs.
We also bumped into the Travers CX Elite they had on test

The team had a great weekend at the "Torq in your sleep" 12hr race. Jo and Michael teamed up for the mixed pairs with a creditable 4th place. John, Lee and Richard teamed up to do their first endurance event for the 3 man team event coming in 18th place with John doing a great double lap at the end moving them up 2 places on the last lap.
Myself and Pete Stiff entered the solo males Vets but both struggled with a bit too much racing over the last couple of weeks and pulled out at about half way.
It was the first proper Fat Bike race yesterday for the Fat Race in the Brighton Big Dog. We entered the Fat Bike pairs category with was for bike with 3" plus tyres (so I could also ride the Rudy Fat).
We can in 2nd place in the category. The time would have put us in the top 20 in the male pairs (out of 70)! who said fat bike cant be fast!
