Right, Rich and I are entered for pairs 12hr.

Anyone else doing pairs? Get a bit of friendly competition on the go... watch out for Team Meat and One Veg BMBC ;-)

The race is a set time, not set distance. So you can take at most 6 (or 12) hours.

Nearly everyone will be doing it for a laugh (myself included)!

For me the fun of XC races is there's always someone in front to overtake, and probably someone behind you'll do your best to keep there!

This is pretty soon now, who else is doing the 12?

I ask as Rich and I are in as a pair, which means we'll either have to abandon kit, or lock it in my car when we transition... but if there are other teams doing it we could share pit area to leave kit? Or if anyone fancies turning up to pit-bitch/banter/watch kit etc.

Ahah, bikefest results :

Rich and I 7th, not bad considering a poor start - looking at the times not as bad a start as I thought. 4 laps behind the leaders....although apparently we had a 17min lap followed by a 48 min one...something odd going on there! (though together that sounds about right for a pair of laps).

Congrats to the ladies for 1st place in the team female cat, and for lapping 2nd and 3rd place.
