It's a crazy concept and I think it might just work.

Might well get up there, rock the tunes and spark up the BBQ too.  Catch you Thursday?

I'll sort some rider numbers and a stake bucket. We'll need someone on lap counting duties...

count me in.  Tried to do as many laps as I could on Joe's track the other week.  Crazy hard work.

but seen as I didn't do the mega, this could be the chance for me to put all my training to some good use ;)

I'll be there struggling to get round a third lap.  Might have to run 100psi in my tyres and wear a skinsuit

yup, if it rains you won't see me*

I'm over it!






* I reserve the right to retract this statement at anytime, because riding in the wet is actually really good fun. 


actually, might make it. if it rains, and its cold and I have to stand around for 4 hours having been up since 4, with no word from the organisors to race an event thats not even the one I entered...... then I'm not playing.

although I suspect the chances of that happening on Thursday are pretty slim ;)

It's on...

7pm start (7am for Col, we'll be along once it's warm and dries up)

I've got numbered pegs to draw start order.

Entry fee - one chocolate bar.  Winner takes all.

BBQ anyone?

need me to bring a couple of big ezups?  or you got enough?  Could possibly cover the whole track so we'll have an indoor event :)

How many participants you got so far, sounds more fun than losing at football again.

Sounds like a cool idea, i have been working on my pump track skills of late, so i'm up for a bucket load of chocolate!

BAM!

Can't wait for it - See you there!

Most of the system is sorted, word is spreading and quite a few riders are up for it from pump track novices to Elite 4X riders.  Hoping to have a couple of prizes and maybe a trophy as well as the chocolate sweepstake.

It's a case of all chip in - riders not riding will need to man the lap counting and marshal duties too, unless you can bring a friend.  Feedback on the format needed - anything could happen!

Bar end plugs and helmet compulsory! ;)

More details:

In the event of any tied places, we'll have a "pump off".  All riders on the same lap number line up on the start hill of the main track.  Pedal the tarmac then pump the rest.  First over the line determines the order.

Prize for the "fastest catch" - so drop in and tear that track up to win!
