How technical is the course likely to be? Compared to say Margam.

I'm trying to decide whether to drive all that way.

I'd take Newnham over Margam any day of the week. Check out Maddie's teaser picture report on the front page and expect some decent tech with the Horton's involved.

Yes, I saw them, which is why I'm asking - pictures of random rocks can only say so much! I keep hearing about the nationals being dumbed down, and Margam is the only one I've done; and the Welsh series last year wasn't technical at all. It's a straight choice between the XC and a gravity enduro that weekend. Decisions, decisions...

The Hortons do have a good feel for making things tricky and Newnham itself has decent gradient so climbs are rewarded by good descents, with some really lovely singletrack plus usually an obligatory water crossing! It's definitely up there as one of the better venues and is an ex-World Cup venue from back in the day.
