    Yes, can't wait. Are you doing any practise laps? I did Kill the Bill so might not bother, but maybe one run to check the bike and lines and get tuned in.

    Just got back... What a ridiculous, brilliant thing they've made. Hope the big crasher isn't in too bad a way... Bit of a shame about the early finish, I'd paced myself pretty slow so I reckon I'd have got a couple more in but happy enough with my mid-table place. The board said I'd done 8 at the end for 80th place but I see the online results say 7, not sure what that's all about. But, happy with that, I ain't dead and my bike's fine and I wasn't last ;)

    Might buy a downhill bike before next year though :lol: My poor wee RP23 was a wee bit cooked. But the little bike manned up.

    PS best hecklers EVER :lol:

    Aye, I really enjoyed it. Though the initial 10 min climb stretches the definition of enjoyed! Shame about the big red flag but it gave me time to check my bike over. The bolt holding one of the seat stays to the linkage was almost fully undone, could have turned out nasty. I highly recommend a DH bike, the difference between it and my old burly 6" is massive at the Fort.

    I'm off to get my wheels straightened.
