Who’s all going to 10 Under The Ben this weekend?
This will be the first 10 Under the Ben that I’ve missed.
The unexpectedly hot and sunny weather for the last two years has resulted in me getting pretty badly dehydrated (despite taking on a decent amount of water and food) and puking, so I’ve been put off it as an event a tad. 🙁Posted 8 years agotrail_ratMember
jojo you look after jayne now ! ….i took her out yesterday and she may have a slightly sore finger now after a wee over the bars incident :s
ill be there solo , not decided gears(red merida) or SS.(gf rig 29er with pannier rack ) Last time i SSed it i did quite well , cant decide whether id be any quicker on gears or not !Posted 8 years agoStu_NSubscriber
Yep. Solo. Again.
Hopefully on a Blue Rush with Lefty (“hopefully” because currently certain crucial bits are in the postal system. Eeeek.)
Metcheck looks just about perfect. If we all believe _really_ hard then should be OK. Last year was hotter than the West Highlands has any right to be so hoping for a bit cooler than that.
Mr Stru – yep, pretty much muddy as in “trail centre muddy”. Almost all of the course holds up really well in anything, they usually chuck in a few short natural bits to keep the spice levels up and they get a bit gooey if it rains (which it hasn’t done since 10UTB 2006 I don’t think) but we’re not looking at Catton Park or Malverns Muck.Posted 8 years ago
Is this a pretty fair reflection of the elevation profile?
Looks like a lot of climbing!Posted 8 years ago
Jojo I think you can register on Sat morn , after the amount of time I was up top and pitched my tent last year I was thinking not bothering going up top if I didn’t need to.
Is it a hassle to register up top?
I’m leaving Glasgow about 9am on Friday morning so I should be up at FW for 1pm-ish giving me plenty of time to get the tent pitched.Posted 8 years ago
