Cliff Bar Climb (2m 31s in on video) looks steep, also a LOT of boring riding on tracks!

Doesn't look any worse than the previous few years course to me.
At least the climbs look short, rather than that awful monument climb!
Plus, it's nice and dry in the run up to the weekend.....

Lots double-track and grassy climbs. So pleased I am not riding this year. At least Eastnor had some singletrack.

As my first lap is going to be well after dark, I'm happy to see a bit of wobble room, it'll also give all those faster riders plenty of space to get past me.

I have the generator and it's in good order so should be fine.

Given the campsite is loads smaller fear they may enforce such things as quiet hours hence requesting lights etc. if the genny has to go off...


If you look in the Rules tab on the website it says quiet hours in campsite from 10pm :roll:

Packing the van tomorrow. Can't quite believe it's already here again.
Despite the recent rain, I think that I'm looking forward to it...

I hope it stops raining tomorrow, and stays dry. I don't want to ride in a bog :lol:
