That's what keeps it interesting!
Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race - H G Wells (possibly)

Hey - so this is happening in a fortnight!  From the responses in this thread it looks like it's me, Curtis, Andy and Dom entered.  Anyone else get in before they sold out?

Previously we've driven up on the Saturday, rode something close like Nant yr Arian, stayed in the youth hostel in Borth then rode Dyfi on the Sunday.  Anyone fancy that?

I know! Time seems to be flying since Christmas!  :o  I fancy this but not sure if I'll get flight clearance for the whole weekend. My father's got an op later the week after and I'll be absent the next weekend  :-[ I'll choose my moment and request clearance, Air Traffic Control is currently a bit grumpy!  ::)

Wish I entered now :(
Rob, Check with the organisers for spare or on-the-day entries. Failing that, stick  a post on the Mid Wales MTB and the South Wales MTB facebook groups asking for spare entries.

If anyone has the mind and is able, can they find out about the tickets available on the Dyfi Facebook page, please?
I don't use Facebook so am hobbled there. I have emailed the organisers and tried phoning but no luck yet.

Justin/Craig/Rob and anyone else contemplating  ;)  on closer inspection it's not looking good. There's a few people asking for spare tickets and one guy offering a couple. I've asked him if he still has them, but given the supply demand situation, I'm not so  hopeful.  :-\

I'm on for the Dyfi now. Thanks Andy for sorting out the ticket.

And I have some news for you all and this may come as a bit of a shock. This weekend I am known as Ffion Taylor.

If it's any consolation I never saw this coming either.

Who knew what would happen as a result of the mundane purchase of a Dyfi ticket?

Having already told Rach I'm driving up on my own, if she finds out I'm actually driving up (and staying overnight) with someone called Ffion I'll have some tricky questions to answer...

Thanks for the company gang 8) that was brill!   You know me and my kid-like love of snow! I nearly wet myself as I drove into Machynlleth and saw lying snow!  ;D

Yea - what a great event as always, cheers for the company.  Bonus unexpected snow was awesome too!  Also good that my brothers mashed hand didn't seem to hold him up!

Here's a few more photos, haven't been through the rest:

Explains why the descents felt so quick, looks like I fell asleep halfway down!

Nice one guys, it was a great ride. The 3 Dickies descents were fantastic.

I think this guy had a slightly unfair advantage, but he did seem to be really enjoying it:

And wasn't this one of the guys you knew Andy?
