Sounds to me like the course was bob on for a proper mix.
Innerliethan gravity? Enduro, very dissapointed.
I really love all you people that hide behind an ALIAS and are "Keyboard World Champs", yes this is aimed fairly and squarely at you "pussy whatever" or is it Sam Sharp?
I applaud your original comment, because we don't want to see you trackside either, spoiling all the fun that the other racers have!

Thanks to all who took part, I take my hat off to you for finishing the event in the horrible conditions.
It was very tame, that is all im saying, and I would like to apologise to northwind for my outburst, that I shouldnt have said! I guess I just felt let down by what I thought was going to be some good riding, never the less I hold my hands up and admit that I got it totally wrong thinking a gravity enduro meant nice steep techy downs that were timed, then a long climb back to the next stage.. I was totally wrong, its more like xc with trail centre descents, may the fittest man win! Dont get me wrong, Im far from unfit and do plenty plenty xc riding and have done lots of xc races too in the past but I went into this with the totally wrong idea about what a gravity enduro is, and thanks parr but I certainly wont be doing one again! Tbh with you maybe you should look into what people want as there were a lot of riders complaining, seems they all kiss arse on here though aye! £60 I wish Id have kept hold of!
My teammate was up there, just read his report and saw the pictures.
Well done to anyone who braved it and survived while I was getting leathered at a school reunion.....
My perspective on Enduro is that you need to be fast, fit, technically strong and also able to use your brain. Look at someone like Mark Weir - not the fastest downhill, very strong physically, but when you combine everything, the perfect all rounder. The best all rounder will place best at the end of the series - some rounds suit better than others, the top dog will make the most of each scenario.
Where do normally ride pussy? If some of the classics on the Inners hill don't register as 'good riding' then you must have some amazing local trails... And to reiterate, not wishing to kissarse, I never spoke to anybody who weren't enjoying it. Let alone find any who were actually complaining...
