http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=237470&start=255 contact misteroo, last news from him is there is still a place left on his 4 man. I think this is the last space, unless you start a new team and the ballache involved

So can i get this straight...

For 4 man team how many times do you go out? Is the other option just a 10 man team?

I've not done it before, but I'm imagining we get 6 hours each on a 4 man, give or take. So, if it's an hour a lap, 6 laps

I think there are solo, pairs, mixed pairs and mixed 4 or 5 man/mixed, and 10 man/mixed options.

Trouble is sorting out the team, and not sure how long left to enter, or if you still can at all

That's usually the plan. Unless the weather or Heathy crashing causes some laps to take 2hrs! This has happened every year that I've been!

This year it's supposed to be a shorter lap. Tactics will vary but if you can ride 6/7 miles offroad in an hour or so you'll be fine. Fastest teams (pro racers) will lap in 35mins or so.

I'll be taking 3 or 4 bikes with me
