will be my 4th attempt. must be something good about it to keeping coming back for more despite the pain. this year i plan to do just a bit of training on the downhills beforehand to avoid my legs falling off during the race.
tx rob. i ran the course a couple of days ago and would say it is all pretty fast underfoot, apart from the bumpiness of the initial climb and final descent. The lack of much mud or sharp turns or narrow sections should make it faster and also much less congested in the tricky bits. i've got the small matter of the Badger 1/2m next weekend to get through first, but i'm absolutely raring to go now!
