Anyone done it in the past and/or considering it for 2015?

  • Is this a different one from the official one?

    I think he's referring to this:

    But at that price I prefer to buy my own Koppenberg...

    €3,250.00 :o:o:o

    Are they having a laugh !
  • Doesn't seem so bad since all costs are covered (including food and drink) I'm sure the target audience for this is able to cough up the required readys.

    Jeez - there will probably be fines for incorrect sock length and stuff.

  • Seems ok value to me. They have no idea of my wine capacity!

    I really like the idea of someone else sorting everything for me. What with family holidays and having owned a corporate events company I am well past the desire to arrange things for other people.

    As to the socks thing, I think it's more a case of light hearted piss taking as opposed to fines. That suits me. I can give as good as I get. I have been in contact with them. Seem like a fun bunch.

    I was just interested in hearing if anyone had done the previous years.

  • From what I'm told people spend on skiing, the price isn't outrageous. And, if it's anything like similar packages organised around the Dutch TT at Assen, it'll be very well organised, well catered and run by true enthusiasts. I don't hear anything bad about the stuff Velominati do (as opposed to say :) ) so I'm sure it'll be a great 9 days to remember. Alcohol and testosterone fueled to be sure. But go for it. And do come back and let us know.

    I could sort of understand people wanting all their stuff sorted for Route Pyranees or the Haute Route etc, but this is like 2hrs drive off the ferry from Dover... Surely its easy enough to sort a hotel.
