if it's 50mins a lap then I can handle that as I'll get 50mins rest after each lap (or an hour and 50 minutes eh Clubby? :wink: :lol: )

Been actually not too bad, some decent rides in and the running is helping.

Bit more apprehensive now it’s getting closer as don’t know what to expect but looking forward to it.

Definitely just going to take it easy and not get gallons and enjoy the atmosphere.

I'd be taking the full sus Keith - a lot of climbing in one lap, bugger dragging those fat tyres up it.

About a week to go, anyone actually ready for this ?
I'm no, practically done zero training, only ridden my bike choice a couple of times but at least its been professionally serviced. The climbing bit looks a right pain !

A gentleman amateur regards training as being in the same league as cheating with drugs, and instead relies on his natural abilities.

At least that's my excuse. :)
