Extremely, plus none was communicated to 'viewers', I think it's a bit poor. I was excited to follow this race, but now a bit frustrated by it.
an option would have been to hold people at the first checkpoint to reverse the differences in time from setting off in waves.
I don't think you can realistically do that. I know I wouldn't want to be stopped once I'd started racing.
You're just annoyed you're not up a mountain somewhere :P
Want to do my final year project for me? So I can do ride.
Ah, that's why you're still going to uni!

Who's gonna do the giant euro cock and balls? We all know it's gonna happen...
hippy starts TCR route planning early
Finished TPR fixed gear yesterday morning at 6:45, so was just after finish closed, got a flat tyre 30km before, still hoped to make it, so stopped every 5 min to pump ut up until it finally blew up. Event was fantastic, 10 km to Cap de Creus and back in slapping wind blows and climb to Andorra section were something I couldn't think of before. As well never been to mountain this time if year, so drscent from passes in night through intense mist and cold was something quite special. Had ro flipflop rear wheel for gear change about 30 times in total so finally was quite used to it even in the darkness. As usually a lot if time was lost for nothing - missed turns, waiting for coffee in restaurant, missing alarm clock erc. which cost an official classification in the end, but I can't complain as it was a great time.
Madman! Much respect to you.
Wow, fair play to you
Anyone here ride All Points North this year? Thinking of giving it a go next year....
I've signed up for updates/entry (although the chances of me actually doing it are slim). It looks like it could be a good ride.
Hero! Was walking behind you up that first climb (Cap #65). Finished at 4am and couldn't stay up to wave you in!
See you next time ;)
Strong look :)
Epic! Well done!
Thanks for a photo, wouldn't tell it could be stimulating to anybody to get into ultracycling,
but I guess any photos from that horrible climb to Andorra would have even less outcome.
Of course I remember you and that walking competition closer to the top, nice to hear that you went alright, it was fantastic experience, the best event I was into so far.
He kept this quiet but @wheels_of_fire is currently racing the 24 hour world championships, seeking to follow in @hippy Footsteps. You can follow his progress here;
You can probably designate a whole 24-hour circuit in just one of hippy's footsteps.
looks like Hippo's out there
Haha... not this year. I'm still trying to get over 2019's "ultra madness". I tried to give some tips to Broady (mostly where to look got to find beer) but I think he's probably got this event under control. It's a little more convoluted than a CTT 24hr but the course is flatter and simpler.
Juliana's Two Volcano Sprint starts Thursday. Very small roster but some big names on there. https://www.followmychallenge.com/live/2vs/
