    Shocker go on the Swindon and District MCC site you'll find the links on there, not sure if the regs are out yet though. When I've done it I've always used a second hand tyre, you'll be surprised how much grip there is with the trials tyre. If you use mousses I recommend you use a tube in the trials tyre, as the tyre can come off the rim with a mousse in (experience) as the trials tyre is a bit big for one.

    Thanks for that
    I have looked at the organising clubs web site, and was puzzled because the regs for an enduro they're holding in September are there, but not this one in April scratch

    Because it's held on Lord Bathurst estate, and there's less damage with a trial tyre than a knobbly.

    If you like enduro's where your dragging your bike out of ruts or through mud almost as much as riding the bike then you probably won't like this place.
    Having said that this place ain't easy, cos your on the go all the time and you have to be on your toe's, and if it's wet like any other event it makes it harder
    but it ain't no wet Snowrun or Caio.
    p.s. don't think the regs are out yet.
    p.p.s. trials tyre only on the back wheel.

    To be honest the bit about not having to drag the bike out of ruts etc all day is what I fancy about it  Very Happy
    Thanks for the info again
