Big Biking Events of 2010 That YOU Want To Do
#1
Following on the Megavalanche thread....

Anyone got any ideas for, or already entered for any big MTB events in 2010?

Im wanting to plunge myself into one, to get/keep me training - but dont know what what.

Another 24hr?, A Trans"Something"?, D2D? etc.....

Just thinking what I might fancy plunging myself in the deep end into.........

Obviously the more people interested in one even the merrier!

I think I have to attend next years D2D just to keep MrLagging quiet though!...  Tongue

Was talking to Genius on Tuesday about when he did the Trans Whales last year, and after hearing what he had to say and what i have read about it already i am quite interested.

Trouble is after going ski-ing and Indonesia later in the year, i'm only gonna have a week and a bit holiday left......

Wont be an Afan I expect, but Coed-Y-Brenin is a sure for April 2010.

I would like to do a similar event to the 24/12, but not the Bontrage 24/12 - done that one, so would like to try a different 12 or 24hr.

I certainly want to be doing the Summer Sizzlers again - wish to complete all 4 this time.

Trans-Wales was suggested by Ash - but I fear thats out of my league currently, unless a hell of a lot of time is dedicated to training (which I dont have an abundance of yet)

Another is the Isle of Mann End to End - which I watched on TV, looked really good, and I expect within my fitness target for next year (75km MTB race)

Theres loads of events obviously, but I need to be realistic, but hardcore enough to scare me into training for it!  Tongue

I was wondering if you remembered that conversation Undecided
I'm still game :B

On top of that the usual will be entered - At least 1 of the 24hrs, D2D maybe solo, Fowlmede XC, CycloX, might even go back to Gorrick next year.
I say maybe solo on the D2D as I really enjoy the challenge of pairs this year, might look to do that again.

I am fairly serious about doing the Trans Wales if i can get the time off and can afford it, so would be great to do it with you two. Any idea how much it costs and date?

No date yet and it maybe in Scotland...   price will be about £500 entry but that will include food and you have to do it solo or pair...

+1 for the Kona Mashup, i emailed the organisers for dates for 2010 but they dont know yet, they said they may even do Scotland instead of Affan, me and a mate will be doing this one, hopefully make it a cheap trip.

Id be up for a trip towards the end of the year, doing Cody in Feb.
