- Anyone else doing the King & Queen of the Hill (Scottish Open) Enduro
Went passed the end of Broon Troot on Wednesday and plenty trees there, must have felled it all pretty quick if it has been! Last time I did Broon Troot it wasn’t as good as it used to be as there have so many new lines taking the easy route round trees, just wasn’t the same. Shame.Posted 5 years ago
Broon troot was pretty today different since I last rode it a few months ago, the woodwork has been removed, there are some new strava/endooro lines, the left hand switchback with the logs has been improved and I think there has been some filling in, certainly it runs more fast and flowy, I quite like it. People need to use the original line near the top with the right hand 90 degree turn with the big root though, its fast disappearing.Posted 5 years agoscoobmwMember
Was also down BT yesterday, and while the wood has gone that didn’t make a great deal of difference I didn’t think (apart from stopping and wondering where I was – dummy – having just ridden through where the first bits of wood normally were). I thought it was running ok, but maybe I never noticed all the new lines … just ride it the same way generally. Still a good run down the hill. Was pretty slidy though – the rain has returned these trails to normal 🙂Posted 5 years ago

I think im gonna stick a magic mary on the front, seems to pretty good in mud and everything else?
Not so convinced on hard stuff tbh, I used mine for the laggan ses because of bad planning, dragged like an anchor and only gripped well on stuff it could get its teeth into. Was good in the dust and loam and I think it’ll be great in soggy wintery stuff though. Good tyre like but a bit more specific.
My recommendation for stages we don’t know about in weather that we’re guessing about is… wavy lines. No, pentagram.Posted 5 years ago

Yes, doing the entire series.
Same here, should be interesting to see what they come up with, last one turned things on their head a bit.
(this is the point where I slide down the rankings, since all the rounds so far count- but from here on in the dropped rounds start coming into effect!)Posted 5 years agodoubledunterMember
Ive been running a magic mary last 2 weeks at GT, quite a lot of the off piste stuff and Im not convinced,Ive been running hans dampf combo last 2 years and cant see by it, I took the magic mary off last night and put Hans Dampf back on for sunday,feel it “moulds” around stuff better, probably talking nonsense but it s chance Im gonna take I think 😀Posted 5 years agomoonsaballoonSubscriber
This is my first enduro and i am wondering what people do to make the most of practice , i have ridden the trail center stuff at GT plenty of times ( one of the reasons i entered was to see a bit more of the place ) so my original plan was to just practice the stuff i have never ridden but looking at the trail center closures that will still leave me quite a lot to ride on the sat ! would riding the course once be enough ? i suppose that is the whole point of itPosted 5 years agoski78Subscriber
Last year I rode each stage once. Decided they are so long you’ll never remember the whole lot.
I just tried to focus on learning the lay of the land; how steep, how pedally, and it seemed to work for me. It was a big day out, and doing the Sat and Sun had me shattered!Posted 5 years ago
I think I’ll stick to the same plan, maybe take even more time on the Saturday and just cruise round.
