Evening,

I have to write what an awesome weekend i've just had. Although the weather was fairly fickle on saturday, the atmosphere, course (apart from the sticky mud sections) and organisation (warm showers and clean toilets) was excellent...

I will be returning (hopefully) next year.

Love it.

    Agreed, excellent fun, so lucky with the weather really, I'd taken my 1.5" mud tyres just assuming they were going to be required, couldn't believe how dry it was really!

    yeah epic I bagged 13 laps and came 21st/169 in solo. Was a complete wreck of a man at the end. rode through the night but bombed badly about 7am had to sit in car for a hour to 'find myself'. If you passed a London Phoenix rider doing solo and offered any encouragement THANK YOU so much it really really helps.

    1.5'' bloody hell.... is that a cycle X bike... :P ... 2.3'' tyres did feel slightly draggy, that's my excuse anyway

    Still buzzing from the weekend, and really looking forward to next year! :D

    I didn't use the 1.5s, just used 2.1" Nics the whole time, would've swapped to Rons, but couldn't be bothered.

    My first one, roped a couple of pals in from work and had a blast, the soloists were amazing (mad) but amazing.

    Already planning next year!!
