Jon do you want Togo tomorrow when it has had a chance to dry. My own family committments meant I couldn't do today but have a pass for tomorrow.



the ground was abit icey in the morning but had thawed out and was just slushy/muddy in the afternoon. Tomorrow will prob be just damp/wet.

With the heavy rain coming down overnight Chicksands should be pretty good, and being sandy will dry far faster than all the xc loops round Welwyn so I may well head up around 12 rather than grinding my chain and pads in muddy slop here.
If you see a 6'8" lump falling off a cream coloured Demo, that'll be me, come say hi. When you finish laughing!

Had an awesome day over there I love it when there are so many people that you know there and all enjoying different bits
New bike was running well despite the noise from the chain guide.
Glad to hit the gap on the lower part of the snake run finally

Well done to brad and Sean keeping the crowds amused with the bull run drop !

Do you hit that sort of gap full speed at first and then slow down/adjust from there?

Just flat out I hung the back down loads on the first few goes as a safety but you go a bit further if you tuck up.
It was a bit slushy I get enough pace to start styling it but I'll be back on it wen the ground is dryer
