Aye,you'll all need them at the end of this one :lol: Maybe a fair amount of elastoplasts and Bandages too :lol:


I would be surprised if one of these 'adventures' in the future doesnt end up with someone being helicoptered off to hospital :wink:

The modern LED lights are superb, and if you know the trail... 4mph is achievable!

For those running a decent set of lights, I don't think we'll be far off daytime speeds.

As I actually have left GT by Ambulance in the past I'm hoping this satisfies the gods of the tress so that they leave me alone :lol:

As for speed we might average out as faster or at least the same as normal because we'll no want to hang around yacking in the cold between stages even if we ride slower. Plus every minute we're not riding that you forget to dim your super lights thats a bit closer to them running out of juice and plunging you into darkness :shock:

switching off and on kills them

That means who ever has the shortest run time dictates how fast we complete the ride. Please, nobody have a burn time of only one hour :shock:
