you sir, are not completely shit... get some goggles tho...

here we have so many hardtail riders, we had to open 2 separate categories for them, hardtail experts and hardtail rookies, some really awesome times there, HT exp, winning with 5:52 or 5:54, i think... where master A and B had times arround that...

here's (part of) the track from an elite's POV

best fog related riding experience: riding in Tenerife, going over one of the new (only 100 years old) volcano and entering the cloud - the closest thing to that is riding with you eyes closed, i thought i was going to die Eek



edit: not my pic but this is the place

@fantaman, how does that race work? Is it like you do a run and then get the lift back up and just keep on repearting for 24h?
