BB200 entries tomorrow.

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Sun Jun 30, 2019 7:27 pm

That's right people, tomorrow is July 1st which means entries for the BB200/300 will be open from 10.00am. Don't forget, you can also order a rather lovely 2019 T shirt while you're at it.

I'm in.

Sticking with the 200 this year; 300 DNF last year and 7 years since my black badge, feels like I need to prove myself again before I go for orange.

That's ok for you to say as the headwind we'll be facing will be a tailwind for you :lol:

Too soon to ask which tyres? :wink:

Aye, bagged mine too :-bd

Crikey they're going quick — 20 sold in the three minutes it took me to find my PayPal password :shock:

Let's hope for calmer weather this time around — although, I have to admit the wind and the river crossings were quite fun last year :wink:

Seriously considering bringing my carbon 26er...lighter when on my shoulder. When they don't make tyres in that size anymore, the tyres question is easy. :roll:

Same here
Might consider the 300 next year; the 200 of last year is still too fresh in my mind

I DNF'ed on my 26-incher two years ago — Welsh grit and V-brake pads don't mix :shock:

V-brakes! No thanks. Mine's an Ibis Tranny, disc brakes (cable to continue our conv from elsewhere :wink: ), currently resurrected as a rigid 650b gravel bike but should be ~20lb naked with the 26" wheels back on it.

A naked Tranny... :-bd

Me too.

Couldn't think of a good reason not to so I'm in for the BB200 - first time.

Bagged an entry whilst changing flights at Amsterdam. Began training immediately by sprinting to make my connection after I arrived late.

I’m in.
Unsure as to whether it’ll be 200 or 300.

Shafiq is in too ‘cause I got him a berth after I bought mine.

Tyres? I’m going round and most probably black.
