Broken timing Chain fixed on trail

Very fortunately we had some "quick-links" in the tool bag and inserted a Sram quick link as this was the cram chain we had installed in New Zealand. I had shocked the chain when doing all the work on the bike and it was not showing much wear (still less than 0.75).
