Assuming that the veterans clear off promptly, the circuit will be available for warm-ups from 11:00.


If we have it booked from 11 we can just invade and tell the old timers to sod off! Or is that not the done thing??

Andrew Would this be because of something to do with a story told to me on Sunday about you doing a perfect 5 point landing (Hands, knees and nose, knees and nose) after being ejected from your stead

Having never been to Hog Hill, and looking on maps, i see there are numerous loops, and from how it was described to me I assume we race on two big loops either side of the hill, is this correct? Also can somebody estimate the slope (uphill), i can work in % terms or ratio's !!!!   I don't want to have to bail out and push!

I'd think it was about 1 in 7 or 8. What does anyone else think?

...or maybe 1:9. It's certainly more than 1:10. How long does it go on for? Interminably, of course!

Don't worry, we'll be using the 2.0km circuit and I've generously allowed you most of a lap on the flat to get a run at the hill. With your entry speed, you'll probably be nearly at the top before you notice the extra effort.
