Great spin today and well originised with 4 ability groups. I was in the 3rd group and the pace wasnt that handy. Dropped off the back a few time on the tough climbs (cx bike dont climb well with a 11-28T on the back) but managed to get back on every time on downhills or where there was stops. 50psi in the tyres ans still managed to get a flat on the road.!!

Some nice trails and very well planned 60k route. I'd recommend anyone to do it next year. There was a shorter route at 30k too

Yeah I was really tempted as the CX bike is back fully working now and all but in the end the big bike will always win  :). Ill def be up for it next year. Was there a lot off road ?

There was a good amount of off road, obviously linked with road sections. Very well thought out route and very big turnout. I believe close to €1200 was raised for charity.
