Jay and Maddie Horton did a great job on the course, creating what appears to have been widely regarded as the most challenging of the National series courses this year.

We had a few Yogi Riders entered.  The Video doesn’t really show how hard the course was of course!  Perhaps I should look at the route through a video viewfinder, then I’d think I could run it all!  It was definately a bit step up from the usual local races for me!  I was able to ride it all in Practice in the dry on Friday, broken down into manageable sections, but in the actual event it was drizzling and very hairy so ‘fell running it’ was my option for the exciting downhill section.
