After a year or so of watching these events come and go, I'm in for my first ever such outing.

Having walked the dogs (or tried to) through last years tussock ordeal, at least I know something of what to expect.

Jay, you can probably borrow my exposure Maxx d. It will last 8-10 hours on medium and will get you through the night. I am in Warwick so can either get it at the start or meet up beforehand.

Jay ... although F&R lights are compulsary, riding through the night isn't. However, I'm sure you'll want to prolong the suffering as much as possible, so how about a spare battery for your existing light? Must be a cheaper option than a new light.

Funny, wasn't going to enter, but I have just entered. Stu's promise of 'less tussocks' is enticing. Looking forward to it!

hmmm, less tussocks. The trouble is that knowing first hand just how many tussocks there were last time means that 'less' could still be really quite a lot!

Well, it looks like entries will be closing very, very shortly ... like in the next hour.

That's it, we're full up, entries are now closed.

Entered and picked up my Stache 9 on the same day.

Failed to get it the Chupacapras to go tubeless, but think the installed rim tape isn't as tubeless ready as suggested.
