    How much Kit do you take to an event?

    So guys (& Gals) how much kit do you take to a race? Now my g/f has decided she wants to race as well (not that I'm complaining ) it means taking:

    3 bikes (2 mine, 1 hers)
    spare wheels (mine)
    tool kit
    bike wash kit comprising off: Petrol Jet wash, hose pipe, 3x water barrel (each holding 25ltrs), bucket, sponge, brush
    pump
    mini bike workstand
    2 kit bags




    I think I need a bigger car
    Prerace, I use a misplaced faith in my innate ability, with a dose of needless optimism. For recovery, I use self-delusional techniques.

    This year, One bike, one spare wheel set, pump, small tool bag, helmet, one kit. It was actually refreshing to take very little to the race. Once the race is over it's really easy to get the hell outta there.

    Dude, a pit bike and spare wheels?!?!?!

    A lot of times, I have teammates driving, so I only bring my bike, spare wheels (if no shared wheels), and whatever fits into my back pack (for the kit, helmet, etc.) And I pray that they have a hose at the race...

    You bring a power washer with you? Plus 3 large jugs of water? I can think of where you can save some space....

    Well he said he takes his g/f too, so I was thinking of some more space he could save. Just kidding of course.

    Hmm... used all but the spare wheels at the last race, and that included all 3 large jugs of water.
