Tis a bugger as I've had the van for near on 25 years and it was solid as a rock when I bought it. Nothing lasts these days.

Lots! Plus roots.
Ground gonna be really wet, but I hope it stays dry on the day for you.
To be fair though its always like that up Kinnoull, even is summer.
Good fun place though, just couldn't stomach the entry fee for somewhere I know.

Any bike selection advice clubby? I'm thinking of my Gemini set to 160mm front and 150mm rear. Nae fussed about tyres, if there's mud and roots then everything I have will be pish!

Seen loads of different bikes up there over the years so whatever you're comfy on Rumble. Lots of natural trails, but I think they'll use the bike park jump trail as well. Uphills there tend to be sharp but short, so once the first stage is out of the way your Gemini will be perfect.
