Twentyfour12 2018
« on: 03, November, 2017, 07:58:24 PM »
Have signed up for 24 hours this year (pairs with Conor, I've not gone totally Bursar.... Yet), anyone else interested?


It's a great event with a properly decent course and if the weather turns to shit there is Dartmoor for an expedition spin then a proper session laughing at the idiots competing...




That's our plan anyways...

2 madsters, 2 ULers and two podium nutters heading over on Thursday.


Weather looking better than last year ("not hard" I hear you mutter) but what reads like a harder course with 25% more climbing than in previous years.

Race abandoned due to safety concerns, trees falling onto track and the like.


Conor and I were ahead of schedule by 45 mins and going strong when we stopped as the descents were too sketchy to make up the time we were losing on the climbs and the weather turned biblical.


Next year!

Well done for giving it a go lads! Sounds like you were flying, so a real shame it was called off.
