Southern XC Rd 5 Pippingford 4th Sept
#1
Southern XC Round 5 at the Pippingford Estate near Uckfield in East Sussex. 4th Sept, normal cat's, amazing course (except for the last uphill!!!!!!!), did the round there last year and the national champs for humour. Going to do "fun" at this one

Ill defo be there - straight after a week in corfu though so probably be throwing up cocktails half way round.

Very local to us this one & a top event - give it a bash.

Darren - open NOT fun.  No questions just do it.   Tongue

I seem to recall doing 3 lap open at the nat champs and iirc my exact words in your general direction when I crossed the finish line (30+ minutes after you) were effing hell  Big Grin

I am tempted to do 3 laps but if I do fun which has a smaller turn out, I might be fighting for top 5 presuming the body works so think I will do that

You will like the downhill bits. Theres one drop off I didnt do at my two events there last year, doubt I will this year either but will go take a nose during warm up..... Will probably run my dropper despite the weight penalty

Yes do it, the last climb is a pig but the singletrack makes up for it. Even has a river crossing (1 foot stream) (bit tricky actually as goes into tight 90 right up a sudden v.steep bit)

I'll most probably be doing this. Have a wedding to go to on the third so it could be a return to my early season Gorrick form (i.e. turning up hungover, riding round slowly and being sick)  :X
