Any Doggs doing the WFO Enduro Series this year?
« on: January 17, 2013, 08:27:48 am »
Is there any Doggs out there that will do these races this year? Also how tough are these races, will they be good prep for the roof?

I am doing them this year. The last few years they have not been too tough, but they ramping them up a bit this year. They will be great training for the Roof and will definitely test your skills and fitness.

That being said, they changing a few things this year, like the Clubman class will be counted as a finisher even if you only complete 1 lap. Those that do 2 laps willl be placed higher, obviously. The WFO committee are going to put in a lot of hard work this year, with Wild Will Gillit doing most of the pre-riding of the track to ensure marking and difficulties are correct.

I have been out of bike racing for about 8 years now. I always seemed to do good on the fast stuff, but maybe my balls shrinked a bit or I became older that I don't want to do the hang on the cable stuff anymore. I have always also said that I would like to try my luck on the roof. So maybe if I try and do the WFO's aswell as a few National Enduro's I might be  somewhat prepared to tackle the silver finish at the Roof..

The WFO series is very hectic, designed to prepare you for the Roof
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?
