Bontrager twentyfour12 – whos going?
Any conditions updates from anyone who has arrived early?
We had a pretty heavy downpour overnight in South Devon, but my local woods were still very hard and non muddy this morning, just wet on the roots. Sun is now beating down as well. So i’d imagine the course conditions will be just fine.

just back from a double lapper and in need of some sleep. Will keep an eye out for you in the morning to wish you Happy Birthday.
I’m near the start of the lap -just past the uppy downy start section. There’s a crowd of us near some Raleigh/Diamondback signage with a Slime ezy up.
if you want to stop for a cup of tea, cereal bar, banana etc. feel free. Will be happy to sort you out if I’m not on a lap!HareydanMember
Just got back home, great weekend and a brilliant course! I’m shattered now, congrats to all the soloists, and the sumo guys! Looked hard work in those suits! I got interviewed today by a couple of guys for the xc racer website while I was waiting to go out on my last lap, will have to check later to see if I made the cut 🙂Posted 4 years agoxcwanabeMember
Anyone got a link to results yet?
Timelaps have them up already. Isn’t modern tech wonderful.
We had a great 12hrs, first time Me and Mrs XCwanabe tried 12hr pairs (first race for Wifey) she loved it. Much more fun than me soloing and we did a lot better than either of us hoped. 99% of the other riders were great giving Mrs XC plenty of space and tolerating her slower average speed.
The one guy that pushed passed her early afternoon going through the bomb holes, sending her into a tree and almost put her off going out again. I hope your final finish position was worth it.
Annoyingly it did include a trip to Minor Injury Unit on the way home, I seem to have broken my little finger. I thought it was sore on my last two laps.
See you next year?Posted 4 years agolocalhero94Member
Interesting race for me, clipped a rock with my pedal on my second lap, got thrown off and landed badly resulting in a hole in my arm and much blood spurting out. Many thanks to the soloist who stopped to help, the marshals who got me and the bike off the track and the St Johns people for treating me. 6 hours at A&E wasn’t the result I had planned, or the honour of officially finishing last, but these things happen :-/

Actualy thinking about it he was a cock at Erlestoke 12 and 24/12 last year, glad to see he’s been a cock this year as well just to keep a good level of consistancy .rOcKeTdOgSubscriber
