fantastic event, beautiful well thought out course tough but rewarding. Would happily recommend and will probably do again next year.
Not as tough as last year which took some of the shine off the day a little. Didn't need any of the feed stations this time which either shows my prep was ok or the route was somewhat tamer! Have to admit though it was nice to hit Butser at 15 rather than 60 though Crooked man walk was just as tough. Overall a great route, great views and again great organisation. Looks like next year is on the cards again :)
I felt that the gap between feed stations was a little too great - a slightly later 1st feed station eg about 30miles would have been better.
This year's route was very good- better than 2011.
This is a really challenging event around beautiful quiet roads but also gives you the opportunity to race along at a decent pace before the next climb.
