XC race at Afan 5th March
« on: February 23, 2017, 08:46:01 AM »
Just thought I'd give you a heads up that there is an XC race at Afan using some of the Wall trail on 5th March so (I guess) there will be diversions in place.

Of course you could embrace the lactic burn and enter :-)

I'm in BPW this weekend so shall have to miss out on the humiliation of coming last in the XC race.

I'm pretty sure that humiliation will be mine :-) although given that they are taking us down the 4X track as part of the lap its 50-50 whether I'll finish or hospitalise myself  ;D

If you think you're lined up  for last or even in the trailing handful, then I would expect to arrive at the finish after they'd all gone home!! :-[

That's actually happened to me, got to the end of my last lap and the barriers were being packed up   :-[  thankfully was a big field today not just the race whippets!

looks like you had a harder ride than a race anyway!

Endurance rather than speed. That said, I was pleased with overall pace, given I had a few nav issues.  8)
