The end bit was definitely the worst. The bit of the gorge was stupid and I was stuck there for several minutes trying to work out how to get myself and bike across. It was a bit like the Krypton Factor!
The section to Madone had 2 lines, right? One zig zag that was partly fine to ride and the straight line.

Crazy technical bits are what its all about, either up or down.

Well obviously! But if it’s an inherent part of the event it would be good to reflect it. Or at least show some of the really really tough stuff! That video makes me think I could do it, and I can’t ride for shit!Posted 4 years agomtbmattMember
Well last year race was a lot longer too so no point in comparing the two editions.
Define “a lot longer”?
One of the top riders from 2012 clocked 81km, which is actually less than this year.
I know the route was slightly modified because of the weather, essentially staying lower down but I was under the impression the distance was pretty similar.
I’d like to go back, change a few things I did and more than anything else, be prepared for lots of walking. And grow a bigger pair of balls!Posted 4 years ago
Basically race was changed from last year after pont de cros.Posted 4 years ago
Last year once at levens tip we had to pedal up toward the col du dragon going along parts of the enduro and then up along the main stream to get to the paking de chasseur and go back up to colla bassa, before going down to plan d’ariou. It was not much longer lenght wise it had just more meters up.
I don’t really understand your obsession with this race! Who drew a comparison to last year? Other than comments that the weather was better last year, which seems to be a fact, why do you feel the need to justify it?
That you think you’ll be faster and possibly the fact that actually most of it is rideable as well.
I know you’re desperate to prove that, but this doesn’t really seem to be the race – a gravity enduro in the UK would probably be a better chance frankly.Posted 4 years agoandrewhMember
there won’t be any walking if you’re good
I agree, there will be no walking if you’re good.Posted 4 years ago
The fast guys will be running, not walking! That’s how they win…
Seriously though, a lot of the sections I walked was because everyone else was walking, one person stops and 279 other people stop too because there is nowhere to go.
I did a lot of walking, it oculd have been a little less if it weren’t for the crowds but not a lot less.
