Hi scott when are the start times out?
also im probably gonna bring the family, is the cafe and kids area near the start/ car park etc
Out tomorrow with a postcode to get to parking. (But you will start a 12 ish)
yep good one for the family. two of the stages (Stage 2&4) pass within 25 meters of the race village. We have at the race village, Food van, Ice cream bike, tea & coffee and cake stand. there is a big play area in the main park to but that is a 10 min drive away from the race. http://www3.hants.gov.uk/countryside/qecp/qecp-activities.htmPosted 4 years agosingletrackmindMember
Walked around there today.
Its dry , dusty and rolling very fast.
If racing best to wear some clear or very lightly tinted glasses .
The transition from sunshine into heavy shade is very quick on a couple of sections.
Its also so dry the surface has cracks in it, and if following another racer there might be some dust hanging in the air.
I am marshalling so say ” Hi ROB ” if you see some idiot sporting a green plaster cast on their right wristPosted 4 years ago
Oh my, what a fantastic day. Massive thanks have to go to Scott and his team for putting on such a great event.
I’m feeling totally battered after some big stacks, but feel great to have competed in something that was so much damn fun!
Hopefully some photos and videos will appear soon…
and bring on the next one 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Easily the best race/event I’ve done in my cycling life – congratulation mate on running it so seamlessly.
My mate Glyn who got the free ride in the Ambulance is ‘fine’ – thanks to those who asked after him. Hopefully the helmet prize for ‘best crash’ will make the wounds heal better.
Thanks to the marshalls, and cake makers – good work!Posted 4 years ago
Bloody good day! Really did enjoy that and look forward to finding out the results.
Steve + whoever else was behind the organisation certainly deserve a pat on the back… providing all goes well with timing and results 😉 (unlike previous enduros ive been to)
Strava here if it helps…Posted 4 years ago
Top work Collective fellas! Great day despite 3 crashes, 2 trips through the tape when I missed turns and a near head on with a couple of Network Rail vans (!? – think they had a depot up the fireroad) towards the end of stage 1 removing any chance of a respectable finish. Absolutely rinsed by the end but if you organise any more I’ll be signing up. Great trails, slick organisationPosted 4 years ago
cheers Collective had an awesome day, really good vibe and great riding
it was a bit up and down, trashed my front wheel and helmet, but got a free t-shirt
won a track pump in the raffle but took over an hour to break into my car and retrieve my keys but managed it without trashing a lock or breaking a window!
im still smiling, if a bit bruisedPosted 4 years ago
