Ok, hillclimb events were my fave BITD, but ask me again at 3am when I've only had 1hr broken sleep as I may give a different answer........

Nope - that was the road climb at the start. No fried breakfasts at Mayhem (or Becks the night before) and I'll be fine :wink:

Think the course suits a hardtail though. DBR getting fettled - possibly with new forks!

It's funny but according to the 'live-action-map-thingy' you climb 6' more than you descend.

I'm hoping to be able to come down for the weekend and meet you all - if I can afford the petrol!

That's to compensate for the podium we'll be standing on at the end :P
