Enduro1 – Forest of Dean afterglow
Happy with 34th – Felt a bit over-cautious at times in hindsight, but going fast/steady with no crashes is no bad thing.
Well done trusty – given our identical time on stage one, I’m guessing you disliked it as much as I did! You must have been giving it the beans on stage 2 though – quick time!Posted 4 years ago
hhmmm a few people seem to have issues with their results, and ive got no time for the final stage?Posted 4 years ago
I did the FOD race last year and I ended up with slower times than the 2 guys in front I kept over taking
its a shame as these are great races but the timing seems so hard to get rightp7richSubscriber
Things about Endoro1 is you really can’t take it too seriously and get hung up on times, conditions, etc. Carlos has always maintained ‘proper’, instant timings would significantly increase the entry cost hence him keeping it simple and therefore more prone to error.
Having said all that i’d be happy to pay more for the added dimension of instant times, podium, etc. on the day.Posted 4 years ago
Nickhead, stage 1 was a case if keeping it steady and not crashing or blowing up! Not my favorite. As for stage 2, it’s a trail I’ve ridden before so I know it a bit. It’s the only one I did though. 1.51 for it felt pretty quick. Not sure how another rider was clocked at 1.07 though, that’s nuts!Posted 4 years ago
Looking at the results you can see stage 2 times are very quick for some, but the other stages being relatively slow – suggesting that it was a regular or known trail (would have helped knowing which line to take for that sharp right!). It certainly felt like it and was def my fav – loved that one 😀Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for helping out, Sharki. We wouldn’t have been racing if it wasn’t for people like you. [/Quote]
I’ve gotten so much out of the sport over the years, its good to put something back into it.
The feeling when you get positive feedback and the general glow of adrenalised fatique from returning riders.
Hearing of the thrills and spills, the banter, the camaraderie, the new found friends.
Its all good, it fuels my madness for life..Posted 4 years ago
