Post by JonT »

Has anyone heard anything about BRIC this year? There is no info. on the website, but I wondered if anyone had picked up info. on the grapevine.

The only news is to save the 5th of December in your diary πŸ‘doesn't look like it will be held at Lee valley in my opinion. All options are being weighed up........whatever that means ??

Enjoyed every minute Steve. I bet the non virtual will be an even better. I've never competed in an endurance event before so the whole process of training & competition was new to me.
My 2nd 500 was too conservative because I was scared I had started to fast. So I think I lost a second easing off. Training programme all ready to start next week 😳 looking for a race around February some time 😎

Next up will be World Champs (but there maybe qualifying required?)
CRASHBs will run (Feb?), and maybe English Champs (Q1).

All these competitions are new to me. Dont think I would make qualifying for worlds yet. I think I need few more training phases before I'm ready to do it justice. Main thing for me is that I am enjoying myself πŸ™‚ joining in on this forum has been part of that 😎 not forgetting CTC & IRL too. I'm going to seriously look at the start of the new year πŸ‘
