Has anyone raced this? What's the course like?

    I did it a few years ago. It wasn't neutralised for the start - simply clip in outside the village hall and then go! Try and get on or near the front row. The first part of the lap from Owston is downhill and has a gravel road and several turns. There is a sharp right turn from the gravel road and it then goes uphill on a very narrow, rough road - again be near the front. At least half the field will be dropped by the top of the hill on the first lap. The second part of the lap is easier and on better roads.

    Cheers, sounds like fun except its supposed to be chucking it down... Oh well, just makes it more "Belgian" I suppose... :)
