Drunk Cyclist, Aand a few more folk than normaly in the woods this weekend...


New top arrived from the States!


RIP a MTB legend; Kyle Bielenberg

`TWO WHEELS, ONE DARK LORD`... I will wear it with pride...



Weekend on at work and both mornings a 5 second sunrise inbetween cloud...



These pics are from today (Sunday)  but i did the same thing both days, Saturday i forgot to charge my camera after filming last week!, and left phone at home so no pics of what was going on in the local woods.
Looks the normal view on the John Muir Way trail...


Until you look across Mansion field and see some obstacles...


And a very smoothed out JMW heading to Balgone...


TOTAL WARRIOR
It was Total Warrior weekend and 3000 folk were paying for the privilege to run a gruelling 12km endurance track across, over, and under some serious tough obstacles...

2300 entered on Saturday and it was mad!, today on Sunday there was 700,
Pumped up by the music and organisers they were hyper to go, the atmosphere at the event was amazing,
Not felt anything like this at an event since my last visit to the UCI MTB World Cup at Fort William



Crazy swamp sections!...













On the SE side they got electric shocks!, and here on the west side jumped over fire and crawled through pipes and under barbed wire!...





The water slide looked ace!...


All the Marshal's were a good laugh too...



Even the Estate owner James entered, well done James!...




And the reward for completing the course was an energy bar and a beer, and memories of a crazy day they won`t forget in a hurry teams working together, urged on by marshals and spectators...

Here is some film of a few of the sections...
