    Got through the first lap but fkd up and missed a marker and ended up on second lap without going thru start finish check , bit pissed off about that , but it was tough , we did one section where if one volunteer didnt help loads of riders they would still be there , proper good lad. I saw Joss at the last section and my tank was empty , so tired it was unreal , sitting here now enjoying leg cramps , fun Not !!!
    I expect a dnf but happy that i did most of it ! Thanks for the support means a lot !
    Oh and them top lads made it look so easy at times , super fit !!!!
    Spoke to Taffy and his mate , good lads but it was a each man for himself impossible to stick together , hope they did well

    Well done Kirky. A tough one for sure! Old style enduro it was...

    Top sportsman of our lot was Ryan ( copper top) on his GasGas.
    Followed by Neil (I just flew back from Iraq for 5 days) taffyboy

    Then it was over forties with the blue (rinse) number plates
    CB is on this forum and he drowned his bike in one of the Tank bomb holes...

    I think it is in order:

    Stu ( I need to get out on the bike more) David
    Orki ( I went the wrong way and had horrible dega vu on the going!)
    Dene (A poke in the eye and other things) John

    I might be wrong. Cracking day was had by all. A pint or two in Llandovery on the way home finished it off...

    Hard old style even. Plenty of tree roots to add flavour. Well done all...

    We were very lucky with the rain. Stayed away till the event almost finished. Then the wind came up and the clouds and temperature dropped noticeably and it started to piss down again...
