No, I didn't enjoy it. Basically I didn't get any sleep on Friday night because of the wind/rain noise. Then I had stomach problems on Saturday so I was exhausted before I even started. My team mate had just worked a 60 hr week as well and also didn't have any sleep. So we stopped at 7pm because we'd both had it physically, there was no point carrying on, although I would have done if I'd had a good night's sleep on Friday night.
Unlike many others I thought the course was OK - I was just too knackered to make a decent job of it.
That's a shame kirstie. It was very windy on friday night, but I think the wind helped the course dry out a bit. I haven't done many events before, only bristol this year, to compare the course to. But I thought it was fine, I just don't know how to ride in mud and on roots, nearly all the riding I do is rocky. Although I had to walk on every lap I always end up walking something when I go riding as I am a scaredy-cat! I was worried at briefing when they kept saying how technical the course was, but it wasn't too bad, I did use all the chicken runs though.
I've done quite a few events and that was definitely the hardest race course I have ever ridden, but I thought the hardest part was the concentration and alertness that it required. I've done lots of different kinds of riding but there is very little you can do with wet roots particularly as they become more and mroe polished as people ride over them.
