After the Aviemore race I have been thinking. Adding up costs for this race led to a bit of a one sided equation. Race entry was £18 and £6 for a day race membership. I crashed pretty hard on one of the rocky downhill sections whilst trying to force a gap and dinged my front brake lever pretty badly. I suspect the perch will snap as a result, so one right hand Paul Components brake lever £50 is added. Then I managed to rip my shorts. Pretty nice Pearl Izumi ones too. So add yet another £75. Hmm, lookingking good eh? Somehow I also managed to lose my helmet. As a replacement I now have a Giro pneumo. £80 thankyou very much.
Racing a doesn'toesnt have F1 costs but it ain't all that far away eh?
