    There’s 5 of us who want to do MM, so we’ve entered as a mixed team of 5 but we’re all male. We’ve no intention of trying to win, it’s a fun category after all. Do you think we can get away without having a woman? Maybe one of us is pre-op?!

    They say rules are for breaking but then they also say cheating is for cheats.

    Could be interesting at signing-on… 😯

    At the very least, one of you should wear a dress on every lap; it’s a “fun category after all” although some teams will be racing for the win.

    Perhaps you should just race as a women’s team with an extra member… 😉

    The mixed category is one of the few with prizes anywhere worth winning

    Is the plan to show up at the presentation with only four riders and say the woman’s gone home? 😉

    Well somebody has to put the dinner on and wash the weekends riding kit

    Provided you don’t beat us (our team is 4 blokes and me), I won’t complain 😉

    I don’t get it. Why would you do that?

    Confused????

    You should have gone the whole hog and entered solo category for your team of 5 instead.
    That would be much more satisfying surely?

    Actually, thinking about it, solo women would be perfect for your team of 5 men.

    Is it because there’s five of you and the same sex group is for teams of four? If so, draw straws for who’s the pit bitch..

    one of you needs to contemplate surgery, and soon.

    I’m not sure the pricing is right for a mixed team of 5.
    mixed team of 5 = 245, team of 4 = 245
    I guess its cause the woman is only along for a bit of fun, and to make tea and stuff that women do

    The pricing seems fair to me, since a team with 5 people gets fewer laps per person than a team of 4.
    I am not rising to the bait about only being there for fun and brewing up!

    It’s not exactly cheating as you’re not there to win, it’s just not in the spirit of the event.

    Man up, find 3 more friends and enter 2 4 man teams.

    Suggest you contact Pat / Provelo and change the class entered. No?

    Recruit three more friends and have a race between the 2 teams!

    Most teams get competitive, even regarding mid table as being important ish.

    So not really in the spirit. Suggest you get 2 teams of 4 or a team of ten or something. One of you could go solo!

    Thanks for the views guys. We’ve been onto the organisers and they’re happy for us to enter as a 5, but we’ll be flagged as ‘non-competitive’ so wont win any prizes.
    One of us will be registering in drag 😛
