Those are great pics Ken cheers for posting.
Know what you mean about the course, I did a fair bit of walking with the bike and decided that after 2 laps and no bones broken that it was time to quit. I was really amazed at how slow I was, it took me 1 hr 30 mins to do the 2 laps
Think I will need a good bit more training and bigger gongs if I am going to complete this next year albeit I think they are talking about making it a bit easier?
Me and Kaiser did have a great offroad ride after the race, down to comrie and back just to unwind. It was a lazy, sunshine-dappled ride skirting the river, a few steady climbs thru the woods, stopping only to pick up conkers and some really nice,smooth, fast singletrack decents- the kind of trails my old body can cope with. Mini ken would have loved it.
Looking forward to the next macretro meet.......
