Hmm. What to do, I've wanted to do this race for years, finally got to a point that I'm thinking about it seriously but now they've changed the rules and it doesn't look good if you're a non-elite woman. Only 13 women made the first 163 who were allowed to go to the top of of the mountain. Of the 46 who were diverted to the white t-shirt finish 16 were women.
Them's not good odds, I can race to clock cut-offs but I can't pace myself to elite mens times.
It's a lot of money (costing in the car, support etc) and I have no chance of a shot at the top under these rules. Oh well, maybe someone in the UK will come up with a similar style event.
