MikeR people on fb get upset over things all the time, I tend to avoid comments on anything.

I kind of thought the whole point of BYU was flexibility. See how wrong you can be….

Go take a look at the bickering and comments in the Bigs backyard group on Facebook and you will see some people take it far too seriously...

Fanny Jean just won one of the French races, with 42 laps of a course with 120m d+ per lap, but she won't likely get a place at Bigs race because there are lots of people who did 43 laps which might have been on flatter courses... Or even ran less but at a Golden ticket event.

Any guesses on how long until I cross my name out again? 1.5 hours until the first lap starts...

Never done one before, but if I come through Hardmoors 60 ok in a few weeks I am toying with the one in Leeds in November. I say toying the idea frightens me, I am not sure I will allow myself to stop when I should....Anyone else got this on the radar?

Good luck if you decide to go for it; getting through Hardmoors would be good prep, surely?

Looks like they have a few planned for the coming year. Also tempted provided the overwintering goes OK.

Got something to say?
