Blogs

A wide range of blogs from this year, solos, pairs, teams....stage race, take your pick

7th August, 2017

It always amazes us that the soloists are the ones with energy to write a blog and this year is no exception with 5 excellent podium write ups and and array from the depths of the pack.

For the boys you can read the musings of new national champions (and age group World Champ) Max Suttie here, crossing the line alongside Max was last year's National Champ, this year's runner up Matt Jones has also penned some words here and Singlespeed Champion Steve Chapman has his musings here. A little further down but a very respectable 13th was Greg Barton

On the women's open podium Hannah Attenburrow finished 2nd in the open class in her first 24 solo and offers some wise words for novice soloists, also riding her debut 24 solo race was Sally Hall who surprised herself to win the open category and take 5th overall.

These blogs offer an excellent insight into what goes on both physically & mentally and also provide some great tips about equipment and feeding.

For a report on the Divorce category (otherwise known as 24hour mixed pairs) then Amy Jones has blogged her thoughts. If it's teams you're after then the the wonderfully named novices 'Two Fat Two Furious' tell us about their Twentyfour12 indoctrination in the Women's team category

If it's a more general report you're after then Singletrack have wrapped up the weekend here

Pedal2Pedal have done a report for their riders in the Stage race and the support races here
