Looks like it’s gonna be a wet one!

Will be sticking with the mud tyres for this one then! Looking forward to it, only my second trip to fod, loved the short dh stuff, hopefully the ‘off piste’ stuff will be even better. The last mini enduro i did was Haldon in Jan and that was about as wet as it gets so will expect the same!Posted 4 years agoKarl33toMember
Had a great time yesterday, first ever enduro for me. Was pretty happy with my 9th in category when they put the results up, but got nudged down to 10th by the time they went up online 🙁
Well done Steve on your second place, what did you win?
I was the one on the Production Privee BTW.
How did everyone else get on?Posted 4 years ago
Cheers Karl, was a cracking day wasn’t it mate. I was surprised with my podium as I had a rubbish stage 1 and made a few big mistakes on stage 2. Loved all 3 stages, loose and fun 🙂Posted 4 years ago
The results sheets got updated not long after they went up – think they missed someone from our category so had to find them in the system. Loved your bike mate, the Shan deffo looks as good up close as it does in the photos. Hopefully see you at a few more. Hope everyone else enjoyed it, the weather was glorious!
Yep, gread day out, weather was pretty much tops in the end, nice and slidey but I thought the trails held up really well. Managed to not come off the bike once which is an acheivement for me!
Did have some interesting moments, once trying to overtake no. 130 (which I have a sneaking suscpision may be prezet?!?) on stage 1 and almost running into the same guy in a rutted right hander on stage 3!
Anyone seen the pics of Neil D doubling over the top of the last gully bit on stage 1? Craziness, wouldnt even have thought to attempt that!Posted 4 years agoKarl33toMemberdaveagilesMember
You made it through that bit then? I ended up in the tape with someone telling me to get back on the bike as there were dancing girls waiting at the end
Best bit of the day for me, having just passed prezet (on the floor!), I managed to get throughn the slippy right hander wihtout dabbing and then heard a chorus of groans ang Ugghsss behind me as I assumed prezet went down again on that corner in front of the baying crowd. Did make me chuckle.
Also good fun seeing the best skid competition at the end of stage 3 and trying to guess who’d be the first to be taken out be someone finishing the stage!Posted 4 years ago
Haha. Think I only went down once on that stage – but the rest of it was completely out of shape. Feet out all over the place trying to keep upright! For some reason I just couldn’t keep off the brakes on that left hander just before you got to the slippy right.
Looks like I need to brush up on some skills before the next one!Posted 4 years agogetonyourbikeMember
