    What do I want to do, mixed team, or solo again?

    Can’t decide.

    dunno. I’m planning to do it solo again, hopefully improve on last year’s “not too bad” result.

    I am wondering too should I made the trip? Should I ride there… In team solo? SS

    Oh dear can someone tell me why I moved back πŸ™

    that was my thinking too. Was quite pleased with my result, but have a nagging feeling I should have done at least one more lap πŸ˜‰ still, I think you probably always have that feeling.

    Must admit I am leaning that way.

    I’m entering a 4xteam, I’ve never done a 24 solo (plenty of team efforts though) but I’m considering it for SITS (see how Enduro6 goes first).

    I may even do extra laps to see how I fare at MM and give other less keen team members more time to drink beer

    Not sure I can be bothered this year. So you’ll be assured of good weather!

    Anyone need a rider? Reasonably fast and a bit focused?

    I think you should solo, as you deserve to suffer as it’s your fault that I’m doing it this year. If you hadn’t solo’d last year I wouldn’t have popped over to support, wouldn’t have thought ‘hey, there’s quite a good atmosphere’, wouldn’t have thought ‘I might actually do it next year’, wouldn’t have got a spot on an AMTB team, and, crucially wouldn’t be spending TWENTY FUNKING FOUR-PLUS HOURS WITH SHELDON.

    Cow.

    can’t be arsed (like every year)

    Mostly love the show, love the stalls, hate the ride (during the laps), love the ride (after the event), love the chill.

    I know a lot of people moan about riding round a field in the wet but I think they’re mostly missing the point of the event as a whole πŸ˜‰

    Entering in a team of four, with two other teams and 3 soloists. I’ll probably be riding my old bike in singlespeed form though, and only take the nice bike out for a lap if it is bone dry!

    I was thinking of not tbh, but I know fine well if I don’t enter we’ll have a lovely summer!

    if I solo again at least you can take the p out of me from the amtb camp this year.

    IHN – I feel your pain. πŸ™‚

    MrsF – given that we don’t know three other people who want to race in a team, I think we’d both better enter solo.

    Rich – I can’t be bothered with the mud either, but if I keep entering them all, maybe one day I’ll get to ride a dry one.

    That’s what I thought last year, and the year before……

    Are you allowed cyclocross bikes? πŸ˜›

    Ah, but the only major race I’ve missed was SITS 07, which I’d entered but couldn’t race because of injury. I still went along to support and of course the weather was hot and sunny, the course was perfect, dry and fast…

    I’ve done one with Sheldon before, he was fine, a bit miffed when he crashed and did his carbon bars in though!

    Remember that, back in the day, long time ago now, with Cooper and Matt?

    GF the only reason you want your better half to enter solo is so you can try to beat her*, as you still have something to prove πŸ™‚

    *Unlike last year of course πŸ™‚

    Got sunburnt the last one I did πŸ˜‰

    Shows how long ago that was!

    Why don’t you enter as a four with two imaginary friends? Or are you that unpopular that even your imaginary friends are avoiding you?

    Andy, I remember it well! And the that Merida we did somewhere! 7 hours of mud, good ol days πŸ™‚

    Ah yes, seem to recall that on the way the car was about to run dry of go juice and them there Welsh petrol stations ain’t open early!!

    Yes there was rather a lot of mud that ride, a lot of mud!

    The only big race I didn’t enter last year was 24/12, and we all know how that turned out weather-wise. So my absence really is the key to hot dry trails.

    mixed teams have to be a 5.

    thanks for reminding him I beat him last year though. shall we take bets on this years result??

    “Ginger’beaten by a girl”

    I’m not ashamed of that – she beat more than 2/3 of the men’s field too!
