Just to a quick post to let you all know that there are still some places left for the Margam Madness event at, oddly enough Margam Park. Luckily Margam Park agreed to let them have it there after they had come up with a name like that. The event is this Saturday, April 19.
Entry on the line is available in all categories, Solos, Pairs and Teams and there is a choice of 4hr or 8hr races.
These will be run in the ‘short’ format, ie only laps completed within the allotted time will count so pacing yourself on that final lap will be all important. The course is 7.5 miles long with about 1,500ft of climbing per lap.
Registration is from 0830 until 0930 with the course open for practice from 0900 onwards. All categories will start together at 1030.
Camping is available on both Friday and Saturday nights (£5/night) and this includes luxury items such as hot showers and flushing toilets
Last year's weather
The weather at the moment is looking most un-Welsh, it hasn’t rained there for ages and the course is lovely and dry. The forecast for Saturday is pretty good too. I’m wondering if the Met Office have got South Wales confused with New South Wales? If I see a deer with a Joey I’ll really start to worry!
The weather I have been promised for this year
Any questions about the event don’t ask me, I’m just the messenger! Gareth is the man in the know, drop him a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
Event sponsors include Clee Cycles, KCNC, Loco Tuning and our very own Scimitar Sports. .
Location: Scottish Borders. A big improvement, topographically if not meteologically, over my home of South Lincolnshire.
