Four months on from being ineptly tackled by a fat Brazilian, Eldrik was still on crutches. John, our very successful fourth team-mate from Mayhem, was otherwise engaged, so the call went out to see who else might fancy a place on an occasionally amateurish but always aspirational team for SITS. We soon got a reply from David Maloney, who had a string of extremely high placings to his name at endurance events. At first I thought he might not have read our ad properly and mistaken our bit about finishing in the top third with finishing third. But luckily it proved not to be the case and he felt our team was deserving of his talents.
