I missed you guys to!!! Hectic couple of days before hand and didn't check where to meet up!!!

Managed the 50K, plenty far enough for me. I think I was spoilt with the weather last year!! Cleeve was a great finish, grins and near death experiences all round!

you mean after all that slog, it got nicer towards the end? And we rode back on road. :roll:


You see Gus/Ed you guys should have come with me and done the last bit of the 50, making it 75k off road. Well worth it for the last blast down Cleeve hill :roll: :lol:

Don't know if it makes any of you guys that suffered feel any better but the locals are saying that the course this year was one of the harder ones we've had. Apparently, the fastest person round the 100k this year was 1.5 hours slower than the fastest last year, thats a hell of a difference. The combination of harder course and muddy tracks really took its toll.
