So I'm trying to choose with bikes to bring. I'm thinking, one rigid with cantis, one hardtail with cantis, and one hardtail with vbrakes

Smile and wave.

Only 3? :shock:

Is there going to be a return of te MkIV Golf next year? Opposed to the Biggest van in Britain and a fleet of high seatpost low front end rigs like last year??


I'll be hiring a van, as it looks unlikely I'll buy one by then. I can sleep well in the van. Not so in a small tent or the car

Well ok, maybe four bikes :roll: :facepalm:

I’ve got three planned - no bounce, front bounce and full bounce. And just to confuse, age wise the more bounce the older it is...

If my genius is going to be fully exploited, I really do need that first lap. This will give me time to get round before anybody has to attempt an overtake...............

Any objections on the very relaxed mentalist team of judaeans.

My thoughts and build depend upon it. Otherwise I might have to tone it down.

A bit.

Two things.

The starting lap has in the past always included a 1k run.

Fast riders will most likely be doing 35 to 45 minute laps.

I'll stick to riding at night, it's much kinder to the spectators.
