Re: Volunteers Needed for Cyclocross 9th of September

Hi,
I would give a hand from early morning.
I am racing at 2:30 PM with the senior so before if you need count on me.

Anyone from Edgbaston/Ladywood could give me a lift? I am with my cx bike of course.

Thanks

as the topic says.

Budget max 20 pounds.

The wheelset or just the rear with 120 OLD spacing (to my beloved Pompino) for a winter spike tyres set (I sold mine when I moved from Germany but I miss them nowadays :P )
