what was the format Jon ?  was it raced on AE's "normal" trail ?   And did you get a ride on the "Shredder" up there ? looks good.

I think the shredder was the last stage, loads of fast berms and jumps. Good but some of the jumps aren't designed great and you end up jumping into a pit.

Anyway the format was a prologue stage, which was a short trail section including a slightly mad but loads of fun fall-line mudfest, followed the next day by a loop of the xc trail with a few timed, mostly downhill sections. I was a bit surprised to get 7th and even more surprised when my friend Dan won it against some pretty good riders.

It was a lot of fun, one of the best races I've ridden in a long time.

From the site looks like Glentress and Kielder not running.

"Welcome on the new version ! We are working on the website, please note that some races won't take place in 2010: Maxiavalanche Cervinia & Bardonecchia, Megavalanche Mexico and Avalanche Enduro Glentress & Kielder. "
