MTB Olympics this weekend – who's going?
I have a spare £45 ticket (face value) for Mens race on Sunday,now the other half has decided not to go at the last minute! I think the £45 ticket gives you access to different areas and the area for the medal presentation at the end, but please don’t quote me on that.
mail me on email@example.com I live 10 mins from J18 M1 or J1 M6,Posted 5 years agohammeriteMember
4 of us going tomorrow. The inspiring a generation thing is interesting, as my nephew has decided at the very last minute that he doesn’t want to go, so we’re taking my Dad. I think we might end up inspiring the wrong generation.
My Mum is quite relieved though as my Dad has wanted to see some of the Olympics live and was going to drag my Mum out to go and watch the marathon.Posted 5 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember

Apologies if someone’s started a similar thread, but I couldn’t see one.
Search function would have shown that many had. Notably this one;

Advice for Sunday…..
Water was the only low point. Long ques for slow taps. We bought 5 500 ml bottles and filled 2 1 litre which did 4 of us, just. Catering is pricey we mainly ate what we took.
Everything else was great or better. Loved the venue. The best spot is probably above triple trouble but you’d need to bag a spot early.
We were between leap of faith and the rock garden and could see about 1/3 of a lap. Walking around was fine my son and I wandered over to the berms and back and got good views of the riders each lap. Only a few places wwas it hard to get a sopt next to a fence
Great racing and the course looked way better than in the videos….Posted 5 years ago
Water is available at several points- make it the first thing you do but don’t Q at the first point- we waited max 5 mins at the second one.Posted 5 years ago
Sorry, no difference between the two prices of tickets, just a larger donation to LOCOG.
Walking from the station at Leigh is easy, also bike park at the bottom of Castle hill- plenty of room and a little bit of off-roading to get there-then walk up the hill.
Course is unfortunately flat and boring, you don’t really want to waste your time going and I will take the ticket off your hands- just mail mesimons_nicolai-ukMember
No need to walk far at all – masses of shuttle buses and not long queue. Optional walk across the fields a pleasant 30-40 mins.
If you work your way around the numbered course crossing points in order you can see the whole course during the race. Maybe don’t start at 1 since others may have the same idea. Great course for spectators.Posted 5 years ago
