    Any trees on the course? I’m having an issue with them, a magnetic issue. I’ve also got the same problem on the golf course.

    I am doing it solo. Will be my first one am not sure if I am up to it but it should be fun trying.

    I just hope the weather is ok. Its rutted as hell and all the exposed roots will be so slippery in the wet. It will take some concentration not to end upside down in a bush i reckon.

    Which bike that is the question. Have done 6 or 7 laps at a go on the rigid but hands get a bit sore. It seems a bit silly to use the five though!

    Is anyone here doing it?

    There are a great deal of trees on the course.

    Clink, Candodavid, Singletrackmonkey and I will be there are Team Singletrackmonkeys.

    That said, if it turns out to be wet, I won’t get out from under the awning because it will be shit.

    I will try to get a Big Bike Bash representative down there to hand out flyers for our event.

    Might even go there in person if anyone wants to meet me.

    best event of the year I reckon.

    I’ll be there racing in a 4 man team along with the rest of the Las Vegas Institute of Sport squad.

    I’ve done it ss solo before and i don’t think i’ll be repeating it though it was a good experience.

    I hope you’re right. The wife will be standing around and if she gets bored the cakes and chocolate will get eaten before I finish.

    Did you ever sell your rocky
    mountain btw?

    it has a very good record for good weather, but yeah if it rains heavily, the course will be f**king minging.
    one point to note – bring plenty of water. i was shocked at how bad the provision of water was the year before last, considering you have a bunch of people riding bikes around, but last year may have been better. ( i was self sufficient ).

    In my best Robert de Niro accent

    “You talkin’ to me?”

    I’ve not yet owned a Rocky Mountain, but there is plenty of time if I hate everything else I’ve got to ride.

    Should I bring lots of beer? What if the wife drinks it, I’ll have to drive home sore, grumpy and sober.

    yeah, aimed at you though i guess i’ve mixed you up with someone else.

    Beer, solo and hot weather would be an interesting mix 🙂

    The course is 10 minutes ride from my house so it would be rude not to do it. Doing it a team of 4.
    The couse is nice and dry at the moment but is very rutted after the winter which can be a bit ‘uncomfortable’ on a hardtail after a few laps. There are lots of trees, roots and twisty bits so you may want to lose your maganetic attraction soon.

    No worries, once met never forgotten. I’m opionated, arragont and egotistical and a w@nker too or so I’m reminded by the wife, other than that I’m just fat and unfit.

    I’m in for the 12hr solo. First event even vaguely like this.

    I’m not expecting too much, but by the same token I’m not expecting to die. Hopefully riding at Cannock will have prepared me for the roots.

    Hopefully meet some of you guys there!
