21/05/2016 - Tweedlove International Day 1

Chay watching Swinny have a 'lie down' in practice yesterday

The lads have just checked in after day 1 of the Tweedlove International. Chay is currently leading Vets, and Swinny is 16th in Elite after having a couple of crashes on Stage 2. His 1 and 3 times were top 10 though, so he's hoping for a clean day on the bigger trails tomorrow and sliding into the Top 10 overall with that kind of pace. Chay is feeling good so will be looking to hold on to that top spot.

Both report the bikes are running sweet after a bit of love from the Shimano tech support on the brakes to make things tip top.

There's a nice write up on Descent World with some great pictures of practice, including Swinny having a little lie down yesterday ;-)

We're excited to see what tomorrow brings.
