Has anyone here done any races at Wasing Park?

    I haven't seen Wasing Park but enduro courses are generally pretty tame, they're not meant to be massivly technical as the challenge is endurance rather than technical difficulty.

    The ones I've ridden tend to be a mixture of singletrack, the edges of fields and farm roads through the coutry estate. They do throw in the odd chute or steep little descent but theyre not hard at all.
    Advocate of disc brakes.

    They're building a load of new stuff, so previous races aren't all that relevant.

    It's great fun in the dry; loamy, fast, lots of good singletrack. It's pretty censored in the wet, a mixture of nasty sticky claggy mud and more gritty stuff.

    There's a couple of more technical bits that I can't imagine they'll use - put in for the National Championships last year, notable a steep, but rollable drop, and a set of log steps on a slightly awkward corner.

    The way the weather's been lately, I'm getting an idea that it's going to be the sticky claggy mess you mention :shock:

    In which case it'll be utterly miserable!
