Hit the North preview 2

We had to give some potential new bits of the course a coat of looking at today. There’s a long tarmac bit that’s hopefully now uneccesary as it will be (subject to the nice man from the council saying “aye”) replaced by a longish singletrack climb with some wooden bits (!) and plenty of roots. Andy, me and Warren were joined by a group of riders who had either entered or were thinking of doing so – one guy had travelled down from Penrith, almost a 200 mile round trip, to see the course. I didn’t count, but I reckon there was 12 or 15 riders altogether.

I shot a brief vid of the bombhole being ridden..

Despite the wet weather and the inevitable mud and slipperyness, there was a universal thumbs up for the course that’s got us all optimistic and chuffed. Everyone seemed really enthusiastic in fact.

  1. That would be John from work. Neil from work also bottled it but I said he was a poof and would be OK.

    He did is and fell off. Ooops.

  2. Given my weak effort Simon, I reckon Will should be responsible for the official video 😉
    have a word?
