About the same for me if I can resist. It gets expensive!

I ticked about the same but this year I will be doing 100k where last year entered the 50k so technically I will be doing twice as much Eye-wink

but I'll be putting my money down as soon as entries open so I don't miss out like with DW.

Speaking of which, if anyone hears of spare entries going for either the 50 or the 100 I would be most grateful

Let there be light

50km is not an option for you Stuart. 100km or nothing Smiling
Just look at what you've done to Christine. She's now posting Cascades training rides!

I'm actually getting quite scared, she really has taken this training thing a little too seriously for my liking.

Thats what I ticked.. but basically I try to attend every major event.. but of course commitments never allow going to them all...

So yeah If i can, its Mogo/Scott/Mont/DW/Fling.

Have yet to do Mont or Fling.....

Managed the DW, Doctor, and Fling ( all 100k) as well as the Fat Tyre Festival last year and plan to do them all again this year.... only a little faster hopefully.

I'm keen to try a 24hr team and have two or three mates interested in the Mont. Unfortunately none of us have lights and this years CapEx budget is suffering in the current economic climate. Looks like buying bike bits will be seriously curtailled this year !

Might try some of the Working Week Series this year...

do road races count? i have done 2 x road crit races already this year.
Am doing 4hr mtb this weekend
entered and paid already for Mont 24hr, BMC 100 and dirtworks 100
Plan to also do Scott 24hr, Fling, 3 or 4 WWS 8hr races
Also plan to do 2 or 3 road races per month, think its going to be an expensive year Smiling

CB, may you could slip the lights into operating budget if your current ones met with a sad end. Then it would only be a safety upgrade.
Thank me later when the bruising subsides after the boss found out what you have done.

CB's picture

The thought crossed my mind.... Not sure how brave I'm feeling though!

Tell you what, you try it first and let me know how you get on.

Operating budget won't even stretch to a box of Goo's at the moment...
