    Just worked out the XC route with Tony Lund and it’s very different to last year’s.

    We’ve tried to make it so skill and handling will be rewarded rather than just all out fitness, as we felt that the fit boys on jey bikes had it too much their way last year.

    And, more importantly, the XC course will be more fun this year :]

    Should take a similar amount of time to do a lap as last year ie. 20 mins for speedy peeps.

    We’re aiming to ride the course this week with a GPS logging our track so we’ll report back then with mopre accurate stats.

    Weekender XC course ridden and recorded. 4km. 130m ascent. 15-20 minute lap. Fun :] Anyone want to buy the GPS file? ;]

    15-20 mins to do 4km, that’s either very technical or very muddy… 😉

    Or a dodgy GPS.. It felt like it was longer! We’ll do another lap on it soon and see if the numbers match :]

    I’m sure that there are a few GPS type web sites that re-calculate the distance for you if you upload the GPX file! 😉

    I’ll start the bidding at 50p…. 🙂

    After consulting with the sadistic Tony Lund, we’re going to look to extend the course to 5km :-O

    We’ll let you know how that pans out early next week.
