SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Thetford on Sunday

Hi,

Anyone know how busy it's likely to be at Thetford on Sunday, with the Winter Series being on? Is the High Lodge side likely to be rideable, or not worth bothering? I was thinking about going up there with my cousin for the day but having second thoughts knowing that WS2 is on.

Hi Richard

I would imagine the red route would be rideable, High Lodge wont be affected as the race is being staged from Mayday Meadow.

I suspect the race course will take in bits of the black around Mayday Meadow, such as Howes Pit and possibly double shocker (which isn't strictly part of the black, so I wouldn't anticipate being able to ride the black route.

Might see you there.

Cheers,
Paul
