It was a fantastic course laid out by the Shred people, in a real forest, with fast swoopy singletrack, tricky bits, big climbs and some great descents and the sun was out and then some.
The day was split between an enduro in the morning and the lycra whippets went out for an hour in the afternoon.
We all opted for the interesting format of the enduro although it was only a two hour-er. Fast and a bit longer.

John was first back and "won" the enduro, I came in 3rd spot and Pete was 6th, a pretty resounding result for VC, especially as Pete and I stopped to help a fellow racer with a mechanical. The sod used all my tools then legged it while I was tidying up. We soon caught him and dropped him like a sack of spuds.

Oh and the caters were great, from an old Citroen van. They even had stripey table cloths.
