    Yes, I’m doing pairs 12 😯 (knackered back and minging cold at mo too) and we have a few other riders doing solos.

    We’ll be next to the Halfway up mtb guys who have about 20 teams entering or something πŸ˜€

    Hello! I’m “racing” the 12 in a SS pair. Bringing the little green bike, a large cool box and a deck chair. Expecting lap times to dip a little in the afternoon.

    Just checked the entry list. Could be on for a podium in the SS pairs… πŸ™‚

    It’s nearly here! Who’s going to be racing the Bike Fest this weekend?

    The trails are dry and FAST, the forecast is good, it should be a great day (well, weekend).

    I’ll be there with the LVIS team resplendent in purple and gold on my Swift or possibly my cross bike (I’ve always wondered if it would actually be slower – I reckon it will be slightly, particularly after a couple of laps)

    Entries still available? Would be a good warm up for mayhem

    Yup, pairs 12 for me.

    Entries for everything but solo still going I think?

    Rocketdog – I’m pretty sure you can still enter as a team of 2,3 or 4. Solo’s closed IIRC.

    Yep, multiple teams arriving from MBSwindon (Builders of the now legendary Croft Trail).

    Our strategy of Lap: Beer: Lap: Beer: Lap: Pasty will pay dividends

    Dreaming Tyres will have loads of teams as usual. Minus me though unfortunately…busted rib from the Highland Trail πŸ™ …so I’ll be pit monkey instead this year.

    Nope. First Bikefest weekend I’ll not be riding in 4 years πŸ™‚

    I’ll be doing a ride up a Scottish Mountain from the house instead.

    Then a beer. Or many beers. From my Bristol Oktoberfest pint glass. πŸ™‚

    Have fun in the sun everyone, remember your sunscreen and water!

    The 4 of you will be missed Ricks, not your sticky ‘savoury snack delights’ though πŸ˜‰

    12 hours solo for me but this time I’ll be doing it with gears and a suspension fork as I’m getting soft in my old age.

    I’m riding with the Loco Racing team, black tops with Loco on the back. So when you pass me some encouraging abuse would be welcome!

    Won’t be the same without you Rickon! πŸ™

    Our old gits team scrapes into the category by a year ! How far into a 12 hour team race can you start on the beer ?

    Thanks AndrewJ, you’ll have to drink more red wine and beer to make up for me not being about πŸ˜‰ will miss the nonsensical conversations and berating you on each lap.

    We have two teams in, one team of teenyboppers (average age 22) and and team of two (previously three but ones ill) in the old gits. I say teams but we are way more shonky than that. We don’t even have team shirts ( unless the fabric marker pen works)

    Just noticed that my team is showing in the ‘mixed’ category. πŸ™‚

    Admittedly I’ve heard it said that I ride like a girl but I’m pretty certain we’re all blokes. And besides, the girls would probably be faster than me anyway 😳

    You can enter the “confused” category with the “Dreaming Tyres Mixed Pairs” team, who’ve put themselves down as female pair. πŸ™‚

    Team of 4, first time as an over 40’s team. First time at BBF weather looking good, in fact thinking about sloping off from work soon, to get down there and sit in the sun πŸ™‚
