Singletrack Sleepless in the Saddle
Just a quick note (before I go to bed…) to say that it was great to see so many of you lot turn out for Singletrack Sleepless in the Saddle this weekend. The weather mostly behaved and I personally really enjoyed the course. The naysayers that reckon it’s all just riding round fields don’t know, do they? 😉
Thanks to Pat Adams and crew and thanks especially to the Singletrack Magazine behind the scenes team who never get any of the credit, leaving it to me to flounce around as if I’ve done lots of work and things: Matt, Sim, Jamie, Mark, Sam, Thomas, Jon, Vicky, Jenn, Beate, James, SteveM, Charlotte and probably a dozen or so people that I’ve forgotten…
We’ve got a load of great shots from the weekend and we’ll get them up on the site as soon as we get a minute. Watch this space.

Fantastic event, great course, cheers to all those involved! Myself and both our teams are definitely coming back next year.
That platercine-paté-clay-mud after the rain was hideous, especially with sod all front wheel clearance, traumatic lap that one 😯 Amazing how well it recovered within a few hours though.
Just woken up after 10 hours sleep, properly buggered day/night cycle.Posted 6 years agoVortexracingSubscriber
Well done to all involved in setting it up, it was great and thanks to you guys from STW for stepping at the last minute. Spoke to Pat during the weekend and he was truly greatful for your help (and others).
I though you were taking the P1$$ about the ‘loitering’ beer tent until Alison from our team rolled through the finishing line with a bottle of ale. 😆Posted 6 years agoTrimixMember
It was great – I got caught on my lap when it went Biblical, but at the end of the lap it was drying out – there was one patch that seemed to stay dusty !
The next person out didnt get muddy.
Great fun, great idea with the Cow Bells and the Lurkers tent was an inspired idea. I wish Id done the last lap in our team now just to lurk.
Well done everyone – especially those mental chaps and chapesses with the orange stickers.Posted 6 years ago
