- Bontrager twentyfour12 – whos going?
Me!! Team Piecep.
We’ll be getting there on Fri around early afternoon aiming to camp on the course a fair way down the field in a green Gelert tent with possibly a Raleigh ezy up….
There’ll be 4 of us (I think) riding. I may well have a red, yellow and blue toy parrot on my shoulder and will be riding a carbon Stumpjumper FSR….Posted 4 years agojuliofloMember
Hello! Riding the 24hr pairs with my Bro in law. Team Midge Bite Racing. I’ll be riding a black Scandal 29er with white forks, probably a black jersey with red arms. Oh and i’m a baldy.
Arriving Friday morning, hoping to get a good trackside space. Look out for slightly rusty white mercedes vito, blue Vango tunnel tent and on Friday evening our bent (from last years storm) gazebo will be going up. The wife and friends have are a team of 4 in the 24hr mixed category as well.
Really looking forward to it!Posted 4 years agowonny jSubscriber
I’ll be there from tomorrow, taking up the “glamping” posh wigwam offer and staying till Monday. Hope the storms don’t arrive.
Doing my first 24 hr solo and this week have been enjoying a big fat taper after months of more or less continuous training.
Riding in Loco Racing team kit. (two of us doing 24hr solo)Posted 4 years ago
Wonny J, if you are serous about the ‘rest and relaxation’ part of tapering, there is an Ale and Cider fest fri/sat/sun, a short mile up the road at the rather excellent Miners Arms in Hemerdon. Also rather decent restauranty-pub food and very bike friendly, in fact they helped host a sort of trailquesty thing last year.Posted 4 years agowonny jSubscriber
Good shout, I’ve been off the beer and even off the wine for the last couple of weeks, so that looks like an excellent way to redress the balance.
Beer fest and live music sounds perfect for Sunday afternoon. “Miserable sods” hour for discounts could be appropriate too.Posted 4 years ago

Oh, I nearly forgot to say – the team sumo jump of doom will be there!
Is it ‘nutty squirrel’ blue grade or ‘venomous snake of gnar’ black grade?
For reference, in my mind ‘nutty squirrel’ grade is about kerb height, and ‘venomous snake of gnar’ is any higher than that……
And what tyres for doom jumping?Posted 4 years ago
Great having it on our doorstep these last 5 (or is it six?) years, but is must be a ridiculously fort-william-esque drive for some folk to get here. We have been spoilt with relatively cheap, excellently organised and fantastic trailed small and massive xc events courtesy of Martyn and Newhnam for many many years now. How he makes much money off this weekend when its up to four nights camping (three with hot showers at thousands of pounds per trailer alone) at not far off half the price of SITS/MM is beyond me!Posted 4 years agostylishMember
Im riding for the above mentioned Revel Outdoors Team, my 4 team mates are racing but im the steady part of the troop!
Did it 3 years ago and cant wait to go back, although stunts in the camp sit will be strictly limited to skids this year after my wheelie went wrong and I crashed into a bbq……
have fun everyone! and don’t forget to smile…Posted 4 years ago
As a premature arrival person, I can tell you all the site was bone dry, till it started raining 10 mins ago….
However, sumo village is starting to take shape! So far 3 caravans! Tomorrow the marquee and disco take shape 🙂
Cider shopping tomorrow 🙂 drunk all the supplies…. already!Posted 4 years ago
