Brass Monkeys Round 2 Roll Call
Is it “sort of Swinley ish”, “sort of Thetford-ish” (Swinleyish but flatter), a bit of the 2 or something else?
Yeah taff the forecast is for a bit of rain, but it’s a long way out to forecast accurately for now I think.
I’m not a racer but find my curiousity is prodded and am looking forwards to it.
Dear whippets, the bloke grunting up the climbs on a blue rigid SS Swift, that’s me. Say hello as you pass.Posted 5 years agogrenMember
Windmill Hill – just over the canal from Tunnel.
Lots of roots and short sharp hills. It’s a fairly tight course compared to the other Gorrick routes. Was there a couple of times over the weekend and apart from the odd swampy bit in the valley it’s pretty dry and rolling well.Posted 5 years agoashleydwsmithMember
I’m in, live two minutes away. The area is in good nick apart from some valley areas. Lots of roots around and hopefully there will be some techy stuff put in. Maybe even the massive up and downs along the fence? Although the steps in those are a bar steward to get up in the wet.
Looking forward to it and hoping to finish much better than the last round.Posted 5 years agoJasonMember
It has been dry at Deepcut all day today 🙂 I did a lap this afternoon in shorts and short sleeved shirt. Not too muddy, just a few puddles here and there, if you don’t want to get wet most of these can be ridden around. I would guess that after an hour or to a lot of the puddles will disappear. In places the singletrack has been diverted to avoid waterlogged or muddy sections. There are one or two soft sections, which I can see cutting up a bit, but these are all very short. njee20’s tyre selection of Rocket Ron’s sounds about right, I was sliding a bit with a Racing Ralph on the front, mud tyres would be overkill.
Not racing myself, but will be there with the kids while my wife races.Posted 5 years ago
