Harrys repairs after his derailier wanted out of the race.

that it took me over an hour (8km's) to think of turning it into a single speed - plus the middle ring exploded on the first uphill I stood up on

Do we need a whole seperate gallery for broken Specialized bikes? Sticking out tongue

But in all seriousness....terrible luck there Harry. Better sign up for the Mogo then!

parts that are specialised gave no issues or problems at all - rather the idiot who shortened his chain by a link to prevent the chain falling off as it did the last time I put a derailer through the back wheel. Being in big ring and thinking I was in middle was the cause of the first breakdown when I tried to shift up when an ambulance vehicle slowed on an uphil and killed my momentum - that obviously weakend the hanger and after the decent or some of the landings that gave way totally.

Just tell us it was your awesome leg strength. We will believe you if you say you sheared off a derailleur by brute force.
