This could be interesting. A couple of q's, has anyone done before, and was it any good and, has anyone been to Hodgemoor? If so, what's the terrain and technicality like?

Never heard of it but like the idea, a retro event with a sponsor, not a retro category of a modern bike event......interesting 8)

Yep, got some additional content from the organisers since this was met with stony silence here :lol:

We are just working through the finer details but the format is as follows.

1) a timed xc loop involving some technical sections - these are all designed to be rideable with emphasis on fun rather than extreme.
2) a skills/downhill timed run using some of the downhill routes available at he park. Again nothing crazy
3) a head to head climb knockouts.

We may through a couple of other bits and pieces in as we go but emphasis is very much on having fun.

We get some good fast riders but most are weekend riders who just enjoy the course and trying to race their mates.

Scheduled kick off is at 10am (sign on from 9) and we aim to be at the pub giving out prizes for 2:30


This sounds right up my street - fun but with a decent competitive edge.
