Tentative yes from me but I'm doing the 'mudrunner' the weekend before and the adidas 10k the weekend after so I need to do a bit of grovelling before I can confirm.

Yes, I could probably wheel it out.


Great to see that rear tub holding out for you although given how clean you are I take it this was a before photo? I also take it that the 40k didn't included the steepish rutted descent through the field?
