I Love, I Hate.

Back, and at least partially rested from

What a fantastic course. Plenty of technical riding, and little in the way of riding round fields. In Keith Bontrager's words "a course for mountain bikers".

It started off as a hot dusty day, though in the afternoon there was a large thunderstorm which turned some of the course into rivers of mud. Later in the day/evening it mostly dried out again

My bike,I love, it performed flawlessly.

I hate getting mud in my shorts.

For the record I did the 12 hour solo and came 17th with 10 laps. Running a fixed gear of 38:20.

Thanks of course to my helpers, Ann and the kids.

Nice work. Told you it would be easy ;-)
Did you get fed up with pedalling at all?

....and I didn't get bored pedalling. It was a good technical interesting course, that rarely allowed the mind to wander.
