    Great day out, if a little wet towards the end. Harder course compared to previous years. A bit more climbing(?).

    Rodney, did you make it round?

    Yep managed to finish, the change in weather and visibility made it a tough slog, someone said the new course was 54k, glad I did it though. thx to those who convinced me to do it. Bloody Strava didn’t work so I have no idea of distance elevation etc.

    Great days racing and great to see so many of the club out it's some event raw untamed MTB. Windy and rainy towards the end but nothing that you couldn't handle unless this summer's heat wave has turned ye soft.

    Very happy with my race felt good was in the lead group up to the mast and sone how managed to hold on to that but when Robin Colm and Paul put the boot down I could hold the pace. Had a good battle with Ben for about 10km then at 25km I got a burst of energy and could see Ben Garth Dave and a worc ridier infront so decided I'd over take them take Ben with me and then we d catch Doris in the distance kind of worked. Had a good battle with John then tried to shake him and I'm sure he was at the same with me but it took the last few km to separate us. Delighted to finish right up there had a look around at the start and taught I do well to make the top 15. Pity about Paul and Colm snaking in to the bushes I mean taking a wrong turn they were fly and I didn't see them after the mast.

    Well done to all the epic winners and a well done to all who took part I've always got the feeling it's been more about that than the race.

    Chalk it down for next year and rope a friend into it too. It's a great goal if your only to do one race a year I'd recommend this
