As the others have said, despite the rain and mud we all had a good time. I could have done with narrower tyres on to cut through the slime, but even the Michelin Mud rear was sliding around a lot. Thankfully it wasn't as cold as the frosty Friday night, I think all of us were too warm when riding.

Results are up at http://www.timelaps.co.uk/assets/uploads/EventReport.aspx?eventID=37 and we came 34th out of 53.

Dry and sunny forecast. Why couldn't we have had this weather last weekend?.... d2d seems like a distant memory now, but perhaps that weather is best forgotten. :D
The "O" suffered a broken control tech post and loads of movement in the headset by laps end. Still.... chance to revisit and improve on what I've got. I think my next build should be a race bike suited for the British weather at these Enduro events! ( or a surly pugsy ) :D

I'm not as photogenic as Chris :D .... but at last I've found a photo of me in 'race spec'.

Cheers,
Boy"O"boy
