If they have another cross-over like last year that was an ideal spot. You get twice as much action per lap. Don't want to be too far from the arena / bogs / showers / bike wash. Will wait and see what the course map looks like nearer the event.


Last years position was great, but not too near the bogs...........

I'm really looking forward to this highlight of the summer for sure 8)

When we dropped in the entries, Pat was saying that there will be a crossover again. He also suggested the course would be similar to last year's.

P22, because of course you must
S Bike, to confuse the moderners
Summit or Brodie, either or, for me to droll close to (but not over, promise)

Hope that helps! :lol:

i wondered that but i got the impression from previous events it was a case of first come first served regarding pitching your wagon. i should be there on wednesday about 5pm if all goes well so that should be early enough for a pond side pitch, also, the green rabbit has a retrobike banner he said i could pick up from the leith hill ride and i have some boundary tape i can nick from work so i'll do my best to tape an area off as i think i will likely be the first of us there.



Jonny
I'll see if i can get the Mrs to "borrow" some "crime scene" boundry tape from work :)
