I asked you to get us the extra points swing that would come with you being ahead of Nick (and Al and Mikey), you did what was asked, thank you!
I know some fell-runners who carry a couple of long cable-ties in their bum-bag for re-attaching flappy soles. Works better than tape and the grip still works.
Once lost a sole in a race in the Northern Territory (where the ground is either small rocks or rock-hard soil) and was running for an hour on the inners. The bruising on the sole of my foot didn't settle for weeks.
Not another X-Talon failure?
Mikey had the same issue at the FRA on Saturday. 2nd time this year!
At least Innov8 replaced mine with no fuss.
No. VJ's, but to be fair they had well over 1000km of racing. Knew they needed attention but checked the wrong seams before packing them (between the upper and the foam rather than between the foam and the grips).
