    Ideal weather venue and course some fast straight downhills that kept you on your toes on a hardtail!
    75km in 4 hours and some severe red tan/burn lines!

    75k in 4 hours, that’s good going Rich! Any ideas what Nick Craig did it in?

    Was a beautiful day, I like the quarry and woods they added at the end compared to last year, made the last 10km fly by.

    I’m glad I had a FS and the SB8 tyres worked a treat. Just a shame I was so unfit, but did have a great time, and a 2nd wind at about 50km. Also managed to use all my recently learnt Jedi skills on the off camber stuff as well as those fast and straight downhills.

    I even took a wrong turn because I liked the look of one corner, thanks to the chap who stopped me going too far!

    Looks like a dogging convention! ๐Ÿ˜‰ :mrgreen:

    I did it in 3.28 nick got a flat at around 25 miles in then came past me with 10 to go so he must have done it in around 3.20ish.

    Milkybar-Did you get a finishing position?I asked as i finished (they usually tell you if you ask) but they were pretty busy when i came through.I got 3.45 on my computer so would be a few places behind you.I hope i was 1st single speed!

    I think on the next one i will take the race bike i was on the winter one with a single 39 ring on some of them hills it was a bit hard to turn the pedals but was still good fun.
