Should be there by 4 or 5, will be on an overloaded yellow drz 400e with red and yellow waterproof (hopefully) bags piled on top.
Didn't know that, what time did that happen?We had a ride out in Saturday when the course shut due to two men down with broken legs!, that course was sloppy in bits, and some bikes had never seen dirt before!,
Bang in that, I would have bought a smaller bike had I known, but there’s always next year!I thought it was odd that there wasn't any guidance as to what to expect on the course. I went through one section that said 'mud tyres only' that was a puddle and a longish climb up some mud/grass but there were definitely other bit that were very slick for road tyres on the normal/easy sections.
I guess half the problem was that if you've seen their picture like this you might not be expecting what it was actually like.

Good fun though with the right tyres.
Have you seen how much they want for next year?but there’s always next year!
Music festival tickets are £2-£300 in comparisonHave you seen how much they want for next year?
Something tells me I'll be giving it a miss... the one just gone (the 2020 event) cost me £49 btw.
So... special offer for us previous ticket holders, 2022 ABR event - £89 with free adventure track access.
Then £99 for early bird tickets with no track access (£15 extra for trail track access and £29 extra if bringing car/van/camper if needed).
Then later some discount tickets will be available at £114 (plus £15 trail track access if wanted and £29 if bringing a car/van/camper).
Final tickets (if spaces left) will be £129 (plus £15 trail track access if wanted and £29 for car/van/camper if needed) is the full price for tickets if they haven't sold out by then.
I never realised it was so expensive to queue for over priced food, beer or test rides.
I think I shall just have a camping weekend somewhere nice instead.
I'm not disputing your preference but the difference between the ABR festival and a music festival is that with a music festival once you remove all the people trying to sell you stuff you'd still have a ton of stuff to occupy yourself with but if you tried the same trick with the abr festival you'd had a muddy trail like are within driving distance of most people. I think that they need to provide better value rather than inviting a load of vendors and hoping for the best.Music festival tickets are £2-£300 in comparison
I would sooner go to ABR
I guess... but other than the camping I didn't actually get much from this festival.Music festival tickets are £2-£300 in comparison
I went in 2019, but not last weekendIt certainly wasn’t as good as the 2019 event even disregarding the queues. The music was shit this time, far better last time as well.
Instead of stepping the event up, it got bigger but worse. I’ll still probably go next year but that’s make or break time for it.
Not a massively worse but it certainly didn’t live up to the billing of bigger and BETTER. Still had a good time but it lost some of its sparkle if that sums it up.I went in 2019, but not last weekend
Was it a lot worse ?
I didn’t want the Covid hassles
