    Waiting for my invite now. Did this last year, and it was fantastic.

    On the waiting list and got an invite finally for Ard Rock Enduro πŸ™‚

    Not sure how I’ll do on my 100mm travel hardtail (not quite finished my new beast of a build) but im sure it will be fun..well my mate says so anyway.

    Who’s camping Friday / Saturday or sleeping in their car?

    I’ll be going up and camping Friday and Saturday night. Doing the enduro on Sunday.
    I’ll be riding a black/green Spesh Pitch.

    Hopefully that was my entry as they’ve finally refunded it (though I’ve not received the money yet, that may be due to cc company delays)

    Yup, couple of lads from work and both my brother-in-laws. Camping Fri-Sat and “racing” on Sunday.

    Really wanted to do this after seeing last years report and pics etc but on holiday… Good luck and enjoy!

    I did it last year and I’m doing it again this year with my brother, i’ll only be getting back from Vegas on the saurday morning and heading straight up, I’ll be on a bright green Nicolai, not sure if I’m camping or staying in a b&b as my other half is also coming to spectate.

    Yup, will be doing the ‘sportive’ (Enduro was sold out at the time) hopefully combined with a couple of days of riding some local loops..

    I’m in, just for the Saturday challenge, but…. I’ve an invite for the Sunday enduro! Got a few days to think about it. Might be a bit much for me on my unforgiving evil (I’m sure it’s trying to kill me) 100mm HT.

    Not sure if and how many beers will be drank saturday night in the camp site but you may not be the only one with a hangover.

    I’ll be there on the Saturday for the sportive which I entered as I really enjoyed the Enduro last year but it sold out before I could get a ticket.

    To be honest, I’m a bit annoyed that they’ve put up spare places without going through the waiting list first fully. I know at least two riders including myself who haven’t been offered the upgrades we ticked the box to hear about. Email from Tuesday hasn’t been replied to, either. I can see the entries, I can set up a Sunday entry but not upgrade a Saturday entry.

    I’ll still enjoy myself as it’s an excellent area and I fully trust it’ll be as well run on the day as last year, but the gloss has gone a bit.

    Seriously fancy it but don’t really fancy being a billy no mates.

    many couples go and camp?

    I got tickets for the Ard rock on the day they were released- I didn’t realise I’d entered the sportive untill the enduro sold out and they split the event into 2 days. Still waiting to hear back if I can upgrade my ticket but wondering if I should buy another ticket for the enduro and cancel my sportive ticket-
    Does anyone know if I’m likely to get a refund for the original entry?

    That’s what me and the girlfriend are doing, she’s planning on walking while I’m riding, riding on my own so far.

    Could be worse, you could be Billy No Mates and at the back like I will be!

    In reality I think the atmosphere will be great, judging from the videos of past years, we’ll be reet!

    Be good to sort out a meetup. BBQ on saturday starts at 6 so we could all say hello next to the burgers. Not sure if STW are going, could have a group photo πŸ™‚ any idea Mods?

    Hmm, bit disappointing if they’re not contacting people about spaces on the enduro. I signed up for the challenge thing and ticked the box to hear about spaces on the race, but I’ve also heard nothing from them.

    Me and a mate are off up for the weekend, it’d be great to meet up with some fellow STWers.

    tymbian

    Meeting up by the burgers is ok by me…

    Maybe with a small sticky food label with STW on it or our STW names..they could be taken off after all have met up.

    Is it correct that the Sunday Enduro entrants set off on the Saturday shortly after the Saturday scientists so as to reccy the course?

    Managed to get a place on the enduro and a refund for the sportive event- happy days!

    Am I right in thinking the bbq is included in the cost…or is that extra (like the camping is, that I just found out about πŸ™„ )

    Not sure? We had to pay last year, but it’s all good either way.

    Plenty of time yet for it to change yet.

    Anyone know if there are refreshments available on site / camping area?

    Premier Icon frogstomp

    Having never ridden in the area before we’re heading up early to get some extra routes in – possibly Gunnerside Gill on Thursday afternoon (probably riding out from Dales if anyone can suggest a good route?) and maybe the Fountains Fell Circuit on Friday…

    Anyone know if there are refreshments available on site / camping area?

    Isn’t it based at the Dales Centre, which I assume has catering?
