John, will be there fri onwards, bringing the kona,a 89 stumpy and hopefully a muddyfox courier comp.
Are us back up riders[ joe& myself] officially allowed to ride should we be needed, or do we have to dress up like either James/Neil/Russ or Gus.
Also is anyone riding modern at all :?:

Heathy,

Glad you can make it.....

Not sure on the backup front. If we can get another two riders together maybe we should look into getting another entry from somewhere ???

Boys,

Mrs Wu and I will be there Thursday afternoon onwards. Probably leave later on Sunday.

Will be riding the Merlin I'm afraid. Might have a go at the Mrs' DeKerf as it looks older than mine (but only pre-dates it by 18 months), but can't face riding my '93 Rockhopper comp I'm afraid - 2 miles a day to the station are enough.

John - regarding help holding fort at the stand on the Friday Mrs Wu and I will be more than happy to take some shifts. Presume it'd make sense to have at least two at a time and for a few hour spells at a time.

Are we all camping together as it were? And if so, close to the stand? Or is that just going to be a noise nightmare at 4am?

Should've said...

will need someone to bring a ghetto blaster (as mine is more of a grotto blaster) in order that I can leave the tent for each lap to the music from Rocky (an integral part of my psycing out the opposition).

(this may be a joke).

:roll:

I plan to race a couple of pre-91 e-stays and an FSR for when it all gets too painful - if you need a show bike (and I don't think you will...) I'll bring the Buck Shaver garage queen... Don't bother with the ghetto blasters - I have some DJ equipment which, married to the jenny, will pump up the volume... wannabeedeejays - dontcha just hate 'em...!
