A personal blog and pointer to all I find on the www about the 3 Peaks Cyclocross

Day to forget for Singlespeeder Matt Brown

Matt’s one of those belting singlespeeders who defied belief. Hoping for a crack at the SS record of 3:38 (I think!) Matt was on a good ride – and looking around the 3:50 mark, when disaster struck.

Taking one of the riskier lines on the top I went over some big rocks much to the amusement of the crowd watching – I’m guessing no one else had ridden it. I kept going hard and started launching off the rocks and straight lining the descent.
I’m not sure where and what rock section it was, but I ended up flatting my front tub. A 32mm racing ralph.
I was still at the top and quickly chucked the bike down and tried to get the sealant to fill the puncture and then pump it back up.
It didn’t work.
