CX Shenanigans:
Guirgs wanted to get a roll in on the CX bike, I wanted to turn my legs over and forget about this weekends race for a bit. It seemed like a perfect match. Something else ended up being a perfect match too, a stick and my rear mech.

We'd twisted and turned through some of the inner most of the Yarra Trails, and had just started onto the ones that would take us upstream in a more direct manner. My mind was on a tricky maneuver a few metres up the trail when I heard a noise from the rear of my bike. I grabbed both anchors, annoyed I'd have to run up the obstacle I'd planned to ride, then saw the mess that used to be my nicely aligned hanger and derailleur. Ride over. Go to the train station. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.
