A new event in Wales organised by Karl Speed, who I know from TCR 2016. It's basically an Everesting weekend with a bunch of mountains in Wales, mostly the Brecons. It's at the end of March, so the weather could make or break it.
No website yet but there is a facebook page:
I might see if I can get a pass out for it.
2 people didn't start in the 2 volcano race: Björn and Fiona. That's disappointing.
Shame, but I guess it makes it more interesting at the front for a few more people.
I can't hold it on Fiona. I'm surprised she entered. What with starting her medical residency, she won't have been riding at all.
I like Karl
With a surname like that who doesn't?! (ok, and he made it to Turkey and probably bought a beer or two :))
Congrats on the win @skinny !
Haha most improved.. to the guy that's won TCR twice! :D
Backhanded compliment if ever I saw one.
I think it's fair. Off road is completly different. It's like a top track rider traing to win a CX race.
I guess, if they're talking about you being a dirt herder now. But a big engine overcomes a lot of skill deficit. Still pretty funny to see you as most improved, like they'd not noticed what you'd been doing the last few years. :D
It does and it doesbt. Simple terrain like at Italy divide is fine, but proper mtb at ht550 and anytime we came to technical stuff I was going backwards fast! It was humbling.
Had to vote scratch award to Jonathan. Hippy gets 'most races entered to good performance' award.
Scratch award, the booby prize! :(
