    i dont fancy a 40 mile drive home after being up for 24+ hours.

    40 miles? Luxury! Sure you’ll manage, never done a 24 that’s been within 100 miles!

    Maybe back to Sandwell – that’s about 40 miles from Eastnor.

    Wrong 😉

    the only way you will ever get to ride a mountain bike here is by entering Wiggle Mountain Mayhem

    so we can enjoy riding through freshly cut grass and bracken which will as usual take more than their fair share of rear mechs

    I ride my bike there, one of the few perks of working for the venue provider 😉

    I’m not bothered where it is as long as we can get our retrobike heckling tent in a decent position on the course

    Can someone explain the attraction of these ‘Mountain’ events that are nowhere near mountains? Why not call it Extreme Adventure Mountain Mayhem and move it to Norfolk.

    These days I’ll only enter an event if the location includes the words “BASE CAMP”.

    I ride my bike there

    So “a private location never before used for cycling in any way” is a lie then?

    I think they’ll head West to the hillier welsh border country.

    Enville Estate near Kinver

    just looked at the home page good chance we will all get shot! 🙁

    Badminton, you know, where they do the horse trials. Might not be hilly enough though, but that never stopped Sleepless…

    Take it from me its a nice place to camp, although it is heavy clay ground, and it features an airfield

    heavy clay ground, you mean thick sticky mud?

    to be honest, sandwell even though it had no hills was a very fun course to ride. So i would say hills optional

    Mark – if I promise not to post any more on the classifieds forum debate will you tell me? 😉

    So do I, I work there. Easy to get to with great road links, muddy as hell off the forest roads. And its pretty flat.

    your selling this well….

    clay….

    mud or forest roads…..

    can we have something a bit more positive about the possible course…

    On a totally unrelated subject, who do you work for Tuffty? 😉

    Whaaaaaat – Its called MOUNTAIN mayhem – are they going to change the name as well?

    If there’s no hills im not playing 🙁
    Il go and ride the old course on my own 🙂
    Wont be as muddy if its just me!

    “it is completely virgin mountain bike territory – a private location never before used for cycling in any way”

    Followed by;

    “Maybe back to Sandwell”

    and

    “Margam park maybe ?”

    Traumatised more like I live about 10 miles from Eastnor and whenever I’m up there you can still see the wreckage from last year. I wonder if the estate had any part to play in them moving it.

    I would not be surprised.

    If I said who I worked for it would give the location. Mm seem to be keeping it secret, but it is common knowledge at work. From Bromsgrove its m42, m6, a14 🙂

    MTG, didn’t see that as haven’t had the time to read the entire thread 😉

    I’m now guessing it’s a National Trust property of some kind if it’s ‘virgin’

    Premier Icon tuffty

    No, its a large private estate in the midlands.

    Rugby?

    If it’s 40miles from Eastnor, then the directions for M6, M42, A14 don’t make sence as they would indicate closer to 80 miles from eastnor.

    So either the press realease is wrong, or someone doesn’t know as much as he thinks he does.

    If it’s the press realease that is wrong I’d hazard a second on Bruntingthorpe.

    He said midlands though, isn’t that warwickshire?

    there you go, railway back and forth to camp, change over undercover in a barn, it just makes sense 🙄 and if the weather is really crap, just ride building to building 8)

    Weston Park in Wolverhampton??

    I recall a race was going to be held there a couple years back, I dont think it was ever ran due to the cost and lack of entries (Jan time)

    Certainly plenty of space for Camping, and loads of woodland, but not too many hills
