Medicgirl ... seriously, If I can do this anyone can and most on here will attest that I descend hills slower than I go up them
Dont discount this race ...

oh bloody 'ell I need to make up my mind. 

Sounds like it would be a laugh. But a DNF because you descend like a snail? That would be embarrassing!

MG plenty of time to practice descents the more you do the better you get Outlaws a great race but I think Nice will be awesome

MG - the witch has spoken.  You may as well enter; she'll hex you into doing it anyway

Medic Girl - HTFU. It's not a knitting club. You've got a whole year yet and you can learn how to descend. Has anyone ever actually taught you how? If this is the race you want to do, and you're prepared to work hard at it, you WILL finish. Nice is an amazing race and you'll never forget it. It will make a great debut race.

MG ... come out with me at some stage, you'll come back laughing I promise you !

Mouse true good descending is a real skill and getting tips of more experienced bods or better still following them down and seeing the lines they take is a must

*snigger* I just had to google HTFU. 

Right I'm not going to be a fuckin wuss. No you're right I have a year. Why does spending hours of the British winter running and cylcing yet an hour descending in stunning scenary bother me?! 

I just googled the mountains - stunning. I'm bloody cycling round Nottingham and swimmig in a rowing lake.

*Sorry massive wobble over*

Completely agree RBM. I was given a coaching tutorial with added bits of Cancellara on video and then have followed people's lines many times.

Meldy - I can see this one is going to be trouble.

The descents in France weren't that bad at all.

It's the climbing you want to be afraid of.
