2018 Race Blog - Keeping it RAD in Japan!
« on: January 02, 2018, 12:47 PM »
Happy New Year Radsters! So here we are again. Itís the beginning of January and Iím back for more fun and games on the race tracks of Japan, though hopefully a bit wiser, if not faster, after the trials and tribulations of last year!! :daumenhoch:

The Crupiís had a few changes over the Christmas break including a new seat, seat post clamp, wheelset and drivechain. Iím also probably going to run with a different number plate this season but whilst I wait on my new race number, I need to sort out my back, which is giving me a shedload of jip at the moment. What seems to have happened is that, either consciously or subconsciously, Iíve been protecting my shoulder when riding and in doing so, have put additional stress on my back. I've literally just finished having physio on my shoulder, so am going to continue with a few sessions on my back. Hopefully that can fix things in time for the first race of the season on 28th Jan. ;)

Anyway, injuries and ailments aside, this year my plan is not only to get more races under my belt at the Midoriyama and Kawaguchi tracks but if the chance presents itself, to also try out another track or two, at least for a practice session if not a race. Thatís the plan anyway, though as I found out last year, anything can and probably will happen!! Hopefully youíll join me for the ride! :slayer:

Thanks guys! Dave, that pic is to do with the first dream you have in the new year - called hatsuyume in Japanese. What you dream about will determine how lucky your year will be. A dream including Mount Fuji is the luckiest, followed by ones including a hawk and an aubergine! Needless to say before I go to bed I've been imagining a hawk flying around Mount Fuji with an aubergine in its mouth!!! :daumenhoch:

sweet hubs

Yeah, I love Ďem. They remind me a bit of the old Son-lite hubs though a little chunkier and a lot cheaper. They also spin like the proverbial butter and the rear cassette purrs like a pedigree cat!! :D
