Brighton Big Dog video
It was the best event of the year by a mile. Having done Mayhem, TwentyFour12 and SITS, the BrightonBigDog course AND race atmosphere were a huge step up in terms of enjoyment. Huge quantities of tea and cake, and free beer as you crossed the finish line And then there was a post race party. Simply awesome!
Surely next year's "MUST DO" event ?Posted 8 years ago
Those are shots from the pit area. You want to have a look at the shots on the website front page, then you'll get a flavour of what 99% or the course was about. It just had to have an open are for transition every lap, diving out of the woods, before darting right back in there. Don't worry about that!
Hope that whets your appetite for the course.Posted 8 years ago
It was indeed 'more interesting' when out of the pit/transition area. Reputed to be one of the most technical uk xc race courses this year.
I'm in the vid, coming in from my lap and tagging my mate, who rides off for his lap. We're numbers 222.
It was a great event!
As far as I'm aware, from the marshalls, who took the pic, the rider was ok in the end. I know where it is was, the first half of the race is theonly way I can describe.Posted 8 years ago
In my opinion, the only course to appraoch the technical interest and challenge of the BrightonBigDog course was the ones held at Lea Quarry, and that was over a 15min lap, at a trail centre with purpose built trails! To maintain that level of interest and difficulty, over a 40min lap, with a huge amount of variety thrown in too was an awesome job by the course designers. There always seemed to be good opportunities for passing off line too.

Yeah, found it eventually. I did spot myself, and I didn't realise how serious some were taking it, warming up on rollers – blimey! Makes me even more pleased with our pairs placing.
Mind you I did spin up the chalky climb out of the village and back, in a vague attempt to warm upPosted 8 years ago
