Marston Vale Bang

Whilst starting a second loop around Marston Vale at the weekend, Chipmunk's rear tyre exploded with one hell of a bang. As it was UST I expected to turn around and see Dozer half covered in green slime :p Fortunately (for him) only the outer casing broke with the gloop retained.

Funnily enough, we'd only mentioned replacement boots for Chippy's ML a few nights before (the ACX's were looking a bit tyred!) and had pretty much settled on some Conti's - which'd impressed her on her Leith Hill demo.

As these are light weight I'm not sure if we'll try these tubeless just yet. They sure look fast with their chequered sidewalls ;)
