moose?

Simon Pavey had a moose disintegrate? I could insert a moose joke but instead could someone explain what's meant by that?

also what is fesh-fesh? it was mentioned a couple of times in earlier updates. I'm reading the updates avidly but there's an assumption of knowledge that I don't have! thanks

Mooses

I now live up in Scandinavia and it doesn't matter what you hit a moose with, they never disintegrate. Should say mousse, which is the substance put into a tyre to add strength and support the tyre. If it was just air, the terrain would puncture the tyres easily delay the bikes during the many repairs needed. Fesh fesh is I believe incredibly soft sand, it is not granulated like the sand on a beach, but a powder, often quite deep which means that the tyres get virtually zero traction and the bike can get bogged down easily.
