Dragon Ride ‘09 Result

Results in – I got 12th place, excluding Dan Lloyd.  Not bad.  Without the cramp probably would have got a top 5.  Still, no complaints. 

Great rides by DaveM and PaulS too – 35th and 36th respectively.

    Why does Dan Lloyd not count! You came 13th, please dont promote yourself.

    Sounds like an impressive result to me! What was wrong with the new shoes?

    They squeezed my feet so that I could barely walk afterwards. I had severe pain on the ‘outstep’ of both feet.

    Oddly they felt fine when I put them on.

    I’ve probably just got a size too small. At least I hope so as I’m already in for another £170 on a new pair!

    As an aside, anyone want a pair of 45 top-of-the-range Specializes shoes? Only one Dragon Ride old…

    Hi Paul, I have the same great shoes, but they are getting pretty battered now. Let me know how much you would want for yours… You should have my email as I’ve just provided it on this form.

    Great result to get 13th out of 3000 riders. A tip for the shoes – buy SIDI, you can’t go wrong.

    I did consider Sidi shoes. However, the nice man in Geoffrey Butlers said that they are a ‘classic italian fit’, ie thin. As my feet felt like they’d already been in a vice I decided, probably unwisely, against.

    I have very wide feet and my Sidi’s fit ok
