Bambam - Mediamatic goldsprints Willem-Jan Rijper

Messengered a bit for MSG Enschede. Too busy now with graduating. I hope to move back to either Amsterdam or The Hague after graduation to work once again as bicycle messenger; the only job that ever proved to keep me balanced.
I ride an old beat-up Gazelle road bike. It creaks, my shoes sometimes fly out of the pedals, I just have one gear for maintenance purposes, the headset becomes loose every ride, I'm currently borrowing a front-wheel, have duct-tape on the handlebars because the handlebar tape was fucked, my saddle is the most expensive part of the whole bike and I totally love it.
I really wonder how this bike will keep up in the 24h race. My first time.
