I shall be touring round a bit.
I've accidently entered in the O40s (as I'm over 40) but I found out last week that they're the old experts. First clubmen through were like 'get outa the way slow [email protected]@rd'. :dozey:
At least I get a head start:burp:

come on boys , how did you all do ?i managed a 7th in clubmen open which im happy with as i was a victim of the bog s twice for about 5 mins each time and i failed on the extreme hill once. backflip king boiled his mighty 300 on the first lap as he lost his coolant so did the decent thing and spent the rest of the day with my lad pulling people out of the bogs and pointing out the best lines (most of the time!). dylan who posts on here occasionally got a 5th in clubmen open too so congrats to him.

thats a bad do johnny. hope all goes well for you. were you talking to me on the line about trail riding from foolow? sounds like you would have had a good ride if not for your little mishap. i started well too and was second into the first corner but never did the logs as they said it only saved 15 secs but i did the extreme hill every time as that saved a lot longer, saw loads of riders have a half hearted attempt at the first log then jump onto the m.x course that saved loads of time. cheating tossers!hope all goes well for your op and get well soon.

I helped setup the course on the Saturday before the Race. It was 9.5 miles long and quite a good test even though it was dry this year. Some of the bogs were a bit fruity and the bridges that were built were proper slippy.

Some photo's here that I took during the race. If anyone wants any of the originals just get in touch and I will email them over. http://s913.photobucket.com/albums/ac331/oggym17/M17%20Brinks%202010/
