    Three days in Exmoor, several timed stages each day, all against the clock and all (mostly) gravity-focussed and on fun natural trails.

    How technical are the stages?  Would it be fun for someone who’s a bit of a bimbler?

    Having done this event in ’21 and ’22 (gutted to miss out this year) I’d say the stages are technical enough to be challenging at race pace, but easy enough to get down without certain death.

    I believe they’re intending to make the event e-bike only for ’24, which I’m also gutted about.  I do wonder if that decision is so they can drop the uplifts provided at the beginning of each day? (It does seem to carry a high faff overhead to minibus 80 riders and bikes around the moors)…  I for one would be totally happy to accept no uplift, more climbing, but still be able to enter with a pushbike.

    Thanks.  Yes, shame about the Ebike only
