Oliver's Mount

A few years ago I did the Oliver's Mount Gold Cup on Candy. The other night I searched for Oliver's Mount footage from that year. This was the first vid that came up:

How lucky is this! The fourth bike (taking it real easy over those jumps) is me aboard Candy. I didn't make the final but did okay in the end.

As a spectator, watching Guy Martin take those jumps at full pelt, from just feet away is breathtaking. A spectacle that every bike-fan should see at least once in thier lives.

Things didn't go so well there in 2007. I still want to return there and give it another go... the small, light Suzy V may just be the tool!
