Three blog reports spotted out there from riders….

John Ross (AKA Shaggy)
my single speed slowed me down on the road sections but I seemed to out ride everyone around me once we hit dirt

Jason Miles
A bit like climbing a ladder really

David Powell
Even though I felt like i was walking backwards compared to everyone around me up the slopes and, after a nice face plant coming down whernside, crawling back down looking terrified.
