Spikes are good on the grass, but the big descents at shotover can be "entertaining" with no heel grip.
Good to know, will keep my options open but definitely tempted to take the bold option and go o-shoes
Don’t think I could speak to you again if you wore o-shoes for an xc race...
OK, they took the big climb out, so you're best in spikes. But I'm not giving you a Fred-style option to buy continued silence.
Give me your shoe advice when you finish in a higher position than me at the weekend Fred ;)
Cross Challenge Series? I ran that once. Stood on the start line, some official ran over, whipped the number (1) off my vest and stuck it on some Ethiopian bloke. So I felt obliged to let him beat me ;)
Have noticed now that he's running U20, those Wednesday run chats are looking more at risk than I thought...
You might have to pull out that "170m above sea level is a higher position" line.
