Right then guys, this morning at 9am on my way to set up the course/marquees it was -5.5 and when i left it was +3. Tomorrow is expected to be the same.
I will be useing mud tyres but have been told that any tyre will do at the moment as the muddy bits are minimal.

Do we have a list of who's coming :?: Apart from Birdman and myself.

Well that was fun :D Got round the 50K route and got back just before 1PM. Hope you all got down the superslick downhills ok, I've never had as many sketchy moments at such speed before :shock:

Lack of mud was nice, as was the final bit of singletrack, lots of tankroad though :? .

oh and the other thing that was good about the day was when i was putting the bikes on the roof of the car a guy with the biggest lambchop sideburns i have ever seen came and took a pic of my bike saying it was bike of the day!! :D :D

he was riding an on one singlespeed iirc, so thanks for that, he did say he reads the forum but i don't think he was a member, i'm sure from my description of you you will know who you are! :lol:
