Not this year for me. Did it last year and needed about a week to recover! Will be good training for your stage race Davey.

Great event lads , done it last year and really enjoyed it . I would recommend doing it solo as there is a lot of hanging around in a team (talking to some lads in teams post event last year and said they should have went solo)
Some of fire road sections are two way traffic so watch this as I was involved in a head on collision on 3rd lap with a biker on the wrong side of road. Was sore for a few laps but recovered to finish race .
Not going to make it this year unfortunate .
Great introduction into 12 or 24 hrs endurance events (if ur into that level of pain )
Enjoy!

Cheers Joe,

Defo think solo is the way to go alright, think I would struggle with the stop start part required in a team.

Have the W200 on the Sunday prior to this   :-\
So need to figure out my recovery strategy before I commit

Would look to Joe or Patrick to see what they recommend on that.

Registration closes at seven so would need to be there for 6.30!
