I'm toying with the idea of racing the Builth mtb marathon next weekend. Never done one, never even ridden 65km before, longest ride i've donerecently is about an hour and a half. Dumb idea? I'm also confused as to whether it's actually a race or a sportive type thing as they give rider times not positions. Could do the 45km one I guess. How technical are they?
Remember it's not a race It's a off-road challenge where they give out times and announce Nick Craig as the winner.
Go for it, you can always bail on the long one at one of the various course crosses,
Whats the scoop with Scott Marathon registration and pre-ride info? Nothing appears to be sent out via email - is that normally the case?
Yup, they don't send out courses as a lot is on private land so you can't ride them before or after unless you're a Welsh Farmer.
General script is rock up, sign on, get bag of free stuff, eat free pasta, ride (race), collect free t-shirt, queue for the bike wash, go home
