The car was packed, my new race bike had finally arrived and I was ready to go. Heading north up the A9 to Dunkeld for the HIghland Perthshire Enduro. This would be my first race on my new Cube Stereo 140 HPC and I was pretty nervous. I hadn't had alot of time on the bike and the trail at Dunkeld are gnarly!
As you can see I was pretty stoked with the new vessel. The stages were steep, natural and technical. Classic Dunkeld. Conditions were dusty and I choose to run a Rock Razor tyre on the rear. This meant fast rolling but sacrificing braking performance. Alot of big name were in attendence at the race. EWS top 10 rider Joe Barnes, Ben Cathro and Chris Hutchens to name but a few.
I was pretty stoked to come away with 7th after a solid day on the bike. A crash on the final stage cost me alot of time but that's racing!
Thanks to Cube UK for getting the bike out to me at last, Scottoiler, HIGH5 and the Bike Shop Scotland for helping me get it setup. Onto the next one!
