He did very well thx Ross but due to my own misinterpretation of the course he was disqualified for missing one timed section, he was cruising though and should easily have won the Club Juniors :thumleft: So frustrating but I think great experience and a confidence boost

Didn't make it this year (Aston Bay  :big grin:)

Well done to the lightie!

Edgy, how does the 200 compare to the 250 or 300?

I rode one once, but can't remember  :eek7:

Janet I find the 200 a lot easier to ride and especially technical type terrain as its a smaller bike than both the 250/300 as it shared the same frame as the 125. I love the 300 in general and certainly a much more exciting bike to ride but obviously also more of a handful when the going gets rough. I'm not a big guy and my son who is 15 is still quite small so the 200 perfect!

I found the 300 very tall, as I am also a short shit. Especially trying to get going again after a fall/stall/traffic on a steep slope.

I'm keen to get back into endure, now that I have more time and lost 20kg  :big grin:

Maybe the 200 would be perfect.

Oh, and sorry for the hijack. And again, well done to the lightie. It's a tough race. My son Reece did it when he was 16, and did really well, until he broke his clutch lever.  ???

Nice to be young and fit I guess!
