House and entry form sorted. Does anyone know what the deal is with sites on the day? I'm thinking of taking the tent mansion and there will be at least 2 of 3 of us doing the 4hr based out of it.

Righto, anyone done a timed lap yet? Or anyone who knows these trails well able to do a good estimate for fast riders? The event website says it's a 10km circuit which will take 45 minutes for "average ability" riders to complete. Naseby is 10km and we knock those laps out in around 25 minutes, and Timaru is almost 10km and we were doing 22 minutes there. So even solo I'm thinking we'll be able to do no longer than about 30 min on the proposed Hanmer loop if it is in fact 10km. But I don't ride up there enough to be able to estimate it all that accurately. Anyone able to help?

6 days and counting :thumbsup:

...and we are looking for a team mate to join one of two 3 man teams doing the 8hr event.

We are a mix of easy going poms and kiwi locals - mix of ages from mid 20s to mid/late 30s. We'll be racing against ourselves for fun, and are definitely not XC whippets.

There's a spare seat in car riding up from ChCh Saturday morning too. PM if keen.
