    yup 12 hr open male team , in bright green Mule Bar kit !

    weather looks good !!!

    Gonna be soloing it on Saturday, in a can't be arsed beer hand-up stylee. Actually, no, scratch that, I'm aiming for 24 laps. πŸ™‚

    Just broken my leg, so I'm out.

    Shee-it! Text me your ward number and I'll bring you a copy of "Grumpy Shropshireman Monthly" and some grapes.

    Yep, he fell down a mineshaft.

    You're just going to have to do all my laps for me KINGTUT. I knew you'd be pleased.

    I'll be racing 12 hour pairs with someone a lot faster than me, Team Over It.
    So what's the deal alluded to above: full suss better than hardtail then?? Is the course a tad bumpy?

    XC full sus would be my choice. Sadly i've just broken mine so hardtail
    it is…

    Is the course a tad bumpy?

    In parts, yes. It's about 1/3 metalled road, 1/3 rooty rocky singletrack, 1/3 fairly smooth singletrack. I did it in an SS pair with no bouncers last year, it was OK.

    I'll be there, cheering everyone on whilst drinking ale πŸ˜€

    The course is fun on any bike (I regularly ride it rigid) but if you want speed then a HT or lightweight full sus will be the best bet. I've decided to ride a 100mm HT this year as opposed to a 140mm full sus as there is always a load of traffic on the rocky/rooty singletrack so it's hard to pass anyway, whilst the HT flies around most of it.

    Seriously? Good luck with that, although you have the weather on your side.

    Heh, your bars will prevent people from overtaking..

    Surely the 5 would be better?

    Heheheee! 8)

    I've kept quiet about the weather after last year (We were Ok on Saturday though) but I'm now confident enough in my own forcast to predict –

    If it rains, you can all blame me, OK? 😯

    hmm, i was considering taking my small block 8s off after last nights ride round the course and leigh woods! i'm sure it will dry out well by the weekend though.

    The classic bike fest template is shite conditions until a day before the race, then it dries out miraculously overnight.

    Here's a pic from our Dig and Pig two years ago – it had all dried up (or been drained by the volunteers!) a week later when the race rolled round.

    Been looking at the camping. Is it on the other side of the road again if your team isnt on the list on the website?

    Eh? I rode it with semi slicks on Monday, it was as dry as, we must have had some serious rain overnight.

    Avoiding it – hopefully the serious, head-down, barging antisocial, lycra-clad mardy riders will get whatever it is out of their systems and the area will be full of happy cyclists next weekend.

    Tuesdays rain is good for the course, it was getting very loose and dusty last week.
    12 hour team for me.

    Odd thing to say tootall. It's because the bbf isn't like that that it's so popular.

    I'm just hoping the bbf is the reason there are so many stony-faced runts battering around Ashton Court at the moment and they will be sated by it.

    No it's like that quite a lot, mind you I'm too busy barging slow newbies with half ton camelbacks and knee length flappy shorts into hedges to notice.

    Damn right! πŸ˜‰

    Yes it would, but it's in bits and I can't be arsed to rebuild it again at the mo (used most of the bits off it for the Pig).

    You sound way mardier than any of the peakless lycra blokes that were sessioning the course at the weekend. πŸ˜‰
