Well done guys, I don't think this would have been one for me as I struggled enough on the Witley 100 last year

Can't think why.......

Section 13 and 14 were my favourites of the day, rocky stream, little water fall to climb with one section flowing into the next and enough room to recover if you got off line, lovely!

I haven't cleaned the bike yet and after all those rock steps on the other sections I don't want to look at what state the bash plate is in.

Tony, you would have been a brave man to try.

Aaah! Memories of an Adv digging itself beyond it's axles in a muddy rut on the Kent LDT a couple of years ago.
Everyone (including Land Rover drivers) screaming at him to stop revving the nuts off it as he went lower and lower.

If it didn't blow up, I would be stunned.
We left the 4x4 guys to pull him out as they had the ropes and winches.
To show how bad it was, most of us were walking past and pushing our bikes.

Strangely none of my efforts made the cut.
