Does anyone know much about the Gorrick 100 course this year? I'm tempted to go for the 5 lapper but wondered whether it's a tough 10 mile lap or a fairly gentle one. By way of context I'm mid-training for Bontrager 24/12 and long-ride wise, I can do c100 miles on the road around the Mendips (c2,100 mtrs of climbing) without feeling like I want to die and, offroad wise, last week did W2 plus another loop of White's Level without my legs giving out (I appreciate that is far less than 50 off-road miles but it does involve a fair bit of climbing). If the Gorrick lap involves mahoosive amounts of climbing / leg-sapping bone jarring sections I might rethink my weekend strategy.
On the other hand I see that pre-entry has closed. If on the day spaces fill this might all be academic. In which case, apologies for wasting your time in reading this!
