    I wasn’t there, but have to say a massive congratulations to my Team Captain Huw Thomas (of Loco BM Racing – sponsored by Loco Tuning), who won the Rookie Jersey for 12 hour solo, and finished 2nd overall in the 12 hour solo.

    Massively good effort for him, he’s been coming into form recently and is a scary presence at the moment.

    Well done also to Matt Page, another local lad – fantastic result, I followed him on XCracer’s Twitter page, proper good fight between him and Ant White – who also did brilliantly.

    Also well done to Mark Spratt, again another local lad – finished 1st in the vets 24 hour solo. Really nice chap, and so talented.

    Well done to all that raced throughout the night, from the photos I’ve seen it looked like a tough course.

    Cheers chaps

    We were watching Simon Smith just keep a good steady pace through out the race, he was sitting in fourth for most of it but just kept on going. Well deserved 3rd.

    How much of the Newcastleton trails did the course use? Was it over the red run?

    struggling to think of another event I’ve done where its been that wet and the riding has been that good.
    excellent course and organisation that “just worked” which no doubt means a lot of effort went into it behind the scenes.

    managed to squeeze in 13 laps in the vets category, having fended and foraged for myself during the whole event I would put a bit crew at the top of the do differently list for next time ๐Ÿ™‚

    Awesome event. My first 24 solo. Loved it, and found it a lot easier than I thought. In hindsight I could have pushed it a lot more!

    Course was brilliant. Mud made it tough in places, but the singletrack was superb and all weather.

    All credit to the organisers too – a brilliant job.

    Some non-arty pics. One of me at the end, and one about 3am trying to remember how brake pads work! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh, and what about the girl with the crazy leggings, and crazier painted bike who did the full 24hr, pitting ‘out of a cardboard box’?

    Now that’s hardcore! Glad she won a spot prize. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Few initial thoughts from me: http://www.killerkielder.co.uk

    What were everyone’s funniest moments of the race? Hearing Ant’s playlist being pumped out at the end of the race was pretty amusing, happy hardcore all the way, his secret has now been revealed, ridiculous bpm to match the cadence! Also seeing a drum kit being setup by a guerilla in the woods was random but they didnt stay long?

    lap function went a bit wrong but you get the general idea.
