Hi fellas sorry I didn't bump into too many of you folks at set2rise.
I had a right blast on the Hei Hei. V-brakes stood up impeccably to the sloshy mud.
I only managed 5 laps of the course as I didn't start riding until 8.15pm ragged myself until about 1pm and then decided to stop for some food ......and went and got comfortable in the awning with a blanket hot tea and biscuits and just didn't go back out lol.
The course was excellent and was getting faster in the woods as the water drained (but got more slimy and sketchy down in the lower wood section) really fun time!
next year I'm going to take the day off work (it's always sooo busy at work as we have our spring bank holiday sale on the Saturday and Monday at AvonValleyCyclery) so as to arrive on time and and not just eat a doughnut for lunch!
NeilG you looked good and fresh in the morning when we were chatting... did you put out 8 laps?
I feel fairly stiff now and have a nice wolverine-esque chainring gash(es) on my calf.
I was really impressed by the general attitude of folks out on the course all very swift to let you past and or very thankful to be let past if they were flying, and as we left the site looked pretty tidy very little-to-no litter around.
