Bogriffie Cross - Ythan MTB Championships

Bogriffie Cross, the race formerly known as the Ythan MTB Championships will be held on Sunday 28th December. Sign-on will be at 10.00am, practice starts at 10.30am. Please contact me if you wish to race, adults only:

chris[at]busybiking[dot]com

The race will be 2 laps of a tricky little, energy sapping course as a TT format. Cross or MTB bikes needed. I need a volunteer for time keeping please.

The top level racing will be followed by a strict diet of bacon rolls, sausage rolls, tea and coffee with maybe the odd bit of booze served from the Ythan gazebo. There will be changing facilities (my garage) and a hose pipe supplying the famous Bogriffie Spring water. Entry to race HQ will be on a strict "no mud" basis.

All of the above will/could change at the last moment...

Thanks to all those who turned out to the Bogriffie Winter Wonderland Cross (aka Ythan MTB Championships). Some great racing, a rumour of sabotage and the whiff of bacon, sausages and Gluvein in the air. Three laps of the lung bursting course and we have a new Ythan MTB Champion, well done Malcolm, tough luck Tom! Here are the results of the Swedish jury:
