    Who’s riding what then?
    I’ll be out on the course hiding in the undergrowth with a camera πŸ™‚

    I will mostly be laying turf.

    Have fun in the brambles.

    Wish it was me, but it isn’t. Knackered achilles is my excuse. The course is fab though, IMO. Think the new section might be interesting with a lot of traffic on it though, especially if wet!

    Sad times Mokl, 1st new section in places will be slippy if wet, I’ve not ridden the 2nd new section yet but can imagine that will be too. One good thing it’ll wear it in for us πŸ™‚
    Rikos, no brambles where I’ll be hiding, just moss :-0

    I’ll be there, first event in ten years for me,planning on popping down on Friday to sus things out,
    Is the course marked out now?

    I’ll be there! Haven’t had a chance to work out the course yet, how much of it takes up the verderers? If any?

    Not sure when it’s getting marked out, nothing scary in it all good Singletrack fun.
    None of it uses the Verderers although it does cross it.

    I’m in.
    Surely I can’t get lost in the forest again! πŸ˜›

    I’ll be there… if I can force myself to take a break from Gears of War 3 that is πŸ™‚

    we are marking the course mostly on Saturday, although some of it might be marked before hand,
    there are some marshalling point posts up already,

    none if it is on the Verderers trail, we didn’t really want to use it and the FC didn’t want us to anyway, some new trails have been built by members of the RDFCC, it also uses trails from previous Enduros and other trails,

    brambles are being cut back tonight/Sat

    I’ve not ridden in the FoD for about 20 years – is it muddy or are the trails surfaced? (yes this is a thinly-veiled “what tyres for…” post).

    Blue Trail is fine but anywhere else will be a bit of a mudfest

    Thinking about it but I currently can’t decide whether to go for 20 or 40 miles. Or maybe just go and play on the dh tracks and not race at all, decisions decisions.

    I’m in for four laps.
    If you see a big fat beardy bloke in Vegan Cyclists kit, riding a Lynskey Rohloff 29er, say hello.

    I’m in, 4 laps

    If you see me at front, say hello

    If you see me at the back, don’t say a word…….

    I’ll be racing for the win – and if any poncy papparazzi gets in my way they’ll be taking a racer’s wheel slap swaffling….

    Can you still enter on the day.
    I was undecided to to enter this. Do three loops of the blue route most weekends.

    But I have never done a race and I can see my self making a fool out of myself with all the racey people around.

    Yep – I’ll be there in a SPAM top. Looking forward to it; competitive talk above!

    Can you still enter on the day.

    nope, entries close on Friday (i think), only 40 places left,

    But I have never done a race and I can see my self making a fool out of myself with all the racey people around.

    there is a real mix bag of riders and not many fast guys (looking at the start list),

    Im in. I wanted to do more than 2 laps, but not 4. It seemes odd you couldnt. So I will try to do 2 fast laps instead.

    Why does the weather forecast only show rain on that day ?

    Graham, I take that back, Ant White has entered.

    I’ll be in it to win* it. 4 laps – also wearing a spam top.

    * Probably wont win it…

    Yup, first race so looking forward to it. I’ll be easy to spot as I’ll be riding tentatively so as not to do any more grief to my sciatica. Alfine 853 inbred, sporting beard…

    Entry has now closed, Event is more or less full. 500 riders! Well done to the organisers.

    Best pre order the bacon bap now πŸ˜€
    Gonna be like London in rush hour on the course, best fine tune the maneuvering skills. πŸ˜›
    Hope the weather stays dry too, can’t wait.
    Good luck everyone, enjoy.

    It’ll pee it down, the boar will eat the arrows abd the bacon will be overdone. You are all doomed. And if it doesn’t rain I will wee on a awkward bit. πŸ˜†

    Aha. Course is looking good, some interesting variations πŸ™‚ Fingers crossed it stays fairly dry ’til Sunday (despite Matt’s forecasts!).

    I was going to ride the dh tracks tomorrow – is this still possible do people know?

    amt27
    Member

    Yeah, everything else is open all weekend as normal. On Sunday there will be marshalls at crossing points with the blue route (several) and downhill runs (the course sort of goes round the bottom of one).

    brill thanks amt27

    Anyone know if its muddy in the FOD yet? Could put my muds on when i get there but would prefer to do it the day before. Weathers looking good on the metoffice

    Which tyres for FOD?

    tollah

    I’ll be using a Surly Larry on the front and a racing Ralph on the back.

    i am currently running Mud Xs, but the course is drying out, if that continues I will switch to RRs, if it rains against (drizzle possible on Sunday) back to the Mud Xs,

    however they are the only 2 sets I can choose from,

    What PSI should my forks be set at?
