Anyone else coming out to play this Saturday then?

SW - I'll be there, although MM1 near killed me, and this one has a longer cycle and hills on the run-route!

The bike route is 16M then is it? Gulp.

I was so tired in the last mile of MM1 I felt like I was about to pass out, so if you pass a body by the side of the trail it's probably me...

SW - how did you get on in MM1?

I was 29th in 2:07:01, with splits of

Run1: 25:27:00
Cycle: 1:12:58
Run2: 28:36:00

Finish: 2:07:01

Don't think I'll be passing anybody with those times!
09/01/2004 at 14:53
2:01:42 overall:

Run1: 25:55
Cycle: 1:07:58
Run2: 27:49

Was astounded as ever by the speed of the quickest guys, one of whom lapped me before I was even halfway through the biking.

Really liked the bike course though, hope this one is just as good...

What's this one then ?
09/01/2004 at 15:12
Cross-country duathlon. Or have you officially hung up your mountain biking boots???
09/01/2004 at 15:16
SW - Didn't you do hairlegs last year also?

Ooh. I miss my MTB. Would I knack my fixed wheel road bike doing it ? And where is it ?
09/01/2004 at 15:20
Yep did the HL challenge last year. Can't find anything about one this year though.

Cougie - someone did MM1 on a 'cross bike. Rather them than me though. Oh, and it's near Bordon in deepest Hampshire.

Oh pah. Bit too far to go. Good luck though - sounds great !
09/01/2004 at 15:39
SW - Don't panic, I'm sure HL will be on... they only launched the website in around march last year, so I'm still fully expecting to be on for this.

I saw that guy on the cross bike also... do you know how he got on? I would have thought there was far too much technical stuff for him to have lasted the distance. (Now you're going to depress me and tell me he finished in the top 10!).

Good luck, Skinny,
Unfortunately I'm working this Saturday, but it sounds great!
09/01/2004 at 15:56
I don't know how he got on, but apparently the organiser has ridden the MM2 course on a 'cross bike. So either it's easier, or he's damn good....
09/01/2004 at 16:05
grrrrrrrrr.... you just know it's not going to be easier!

Tep - MM3 is on saturday 7 Feb... so there's advance warning for you - we'll expect to see you there.
09/01/2004 at 16:39
Skinny Whippet - have you got the message about the change of access gate to the site for tomorrow? I just got an email from the organisers about 1/2 an hour ago.

Thanks Rocks, I've got it now, but wouldn't have looked if you hadn't told me!

Cheers

Thanks Rocks, but no can do that date either...
09/01/2004 at 17:05
I can't make MM3 either but keep your eyes peeled for the "Hairy Legs Challenge" Tep!
10/01/2004 at 20:14
Well I have never, ever, EVER been so knackered!!! I had no idea it would be so much harder than MM1... I still enjoyed the biking, but completely ran out of steam toward the end of the second "run", eventually finishing in about 3:23 and only narrowly avoiding a spectacular chunder at the finish line.

Hairy Legs Challenge should be a breeze after this!
