Is there still the offer of room for camping at the HTC/Duffbag team area?
No worries if not.

Looks like camping is getting sorted, the guys at Columbia want us to be one big happy family. They are going to liaise with me over the next day or so. They are talking about a win in elite men - no pressure then!

Will update as soon as I know more

OK, camping is all sorted, Jon at Columbia is going to save a great big paddock, pit, camping area for us all, enough for our two teams of four plus the (5?) team of ten. The idea is to have a great weekend and get to know each other as well as get publicity / photos for Team Columbia Bikefood and Duffbag.

They like to be as close to the start/ finish section and really at the heart of the action. I was with them at Sleepless last year and they create a good, professional atmosphere in their pit area.

Please let me know if you are not happy with this arrangement and I will let them know.

I am going to liaise with Bazza as he will be there on the Thursday and will meet up with Jon from Columbia to sort out the fine details.

I will be going up on Friday, but will be staying in the Duffbus in the trade area, so will be between the two camps

Any queries please let me know ASAP, I will be keeping an eye on this post over the next day or so

Bazza and Jon from Columbia seem to have everything sorted re. camping.

We will have to see about the BBQ, bit of a logistic headache getting bikes, and all the gear plus decent size BBQ, (and I am massively over budget for the weekend) anyone got any ideas?

Should be a fun weekend all the same Very Happy

We are travelling Friday am too.

We hope to meet up with the Doopey Gangster and his merry men at around 0845hrs to 0900hrs in the lay by we met up for on the Charity ride.

If you want to join us Duff give me a bell.

We are taking a few disposable barbies and two chunks of Sirloin steak so a barbie is on the cards (we can always use Bazza's tent as fuel if more heat is required).

I have also packed a full bar!!!!!, and will maintain a good Whitstable type professional drinkers atmosphere wherever we stagger!

How about a cheeky Vimto Mrs D.

Will call you all in the morning.

Thanks guys for a thoroughly enjoyable weekend, absolutely whacked out but really enjoyed ourselves.

The results are in -

BogHogs ten finished 43rd out of 49 (Yay! Go BogHogs)

Columbia finished 6th in Expert Mixed and 6th in Open Male

I can't see Jim's or Bazza's team as my eyes won't stay open, I am sure they will post their achievements if they have the energy.

Trading from Duffbag was awesome - beyond our expectations, thanks for your encouragement and help guys.

Definitely up for it again next year

fantastic result for the 10's

1 litre of Spiced Rum
3 litres of Cheeky Vimto
8 bottles of Cobra
16 pints of Cider

and that was just Henny, Luke and myself.

Saving up for more alcohol for next year.

Our team didn't do so well on the drinking front as i was the only member to visit the beer tent late on friday.
Our finishing places we're better than our alchol consumption with a 32nd out of 123 teams in the vetrans and 94th out of 188 teams in the mens sport.
We,re pleased with our placing and had an enjoyable weekend.
Same again next year me thinks Very Happy
