This year, as well as the wide variety of ‘normal’ riders, there’s a packed pro field including names as big as Tracy Moseley, Nico Vouilloz, Fabien Barel as well as Wales’ finest, Rowan Sorrell.

  1. This ‘normal’ rider will see you there Ash, I confess to being scared and excited all at the same time. Worried about my bike, my gear, my fitness, my skills my my my … lol. cant wait. :o)

  2. That just looks sooooo amazing I might wet myself. In fact. I think I just did.

    The perfect antidote to that sinking feeling from the damp autumn misery that is building day-by-day outside my window right now. Wish I were there too..!

  3. Anyone up for some predictions of the mens top three (and womens top 2!)?

  4. Isn’t Steve Jones Wales’ finest?
