    Loads of people were on MTBs and very little is on road - maybe 15km of the total.

    With the 2 mad dogs? Wife took pity on me and picked me up on the Saturday night so I only had to camp on the Friday.

    Guy on the road bike with caliper brakes? - a good ride on that bike :ohmy:

    Yes, a significant number of MTBs/29ers on the course, especially on the 130km event.

    The guy with the caliper brakes - the only person I saw riding with calipers. He didn't have a pump, so had to borrow one from another rider and then broke it. He enjoyed himself nevertheless!

    Did you get any of the potatoes at the last feedstop? Never has a spud tasted so good!!

    Yes, the spuds were a life saver - suffered from about 120 - 150 km but morale picked up considerably after the last feed.
