“Rounds 1&2 were certainly a ‘tough going’ opening to the British championship!”
Controversy surrounds rounds 1&2 of the British Enduro Championship, which took place 5th and 6th March 2016 in Yorkshire. Here’s Bud’s take on the event…
Rounds 1&2 were certainly a ‘tough going” opening to the British championship! With plenty of rain, walking the tests were looking slick on Friday but I was looking forward to the two day event. As expected the going was tough with some big hills and lots of single rut leg dragging. Meaning a lot of lost time on both days. The checks were hard to meet, and struggling through the knee deep ruts, blowing out of ass and mouth I managed to drop minimal time both days. As for the test, a big stubble field rutted up nicely and into the flowing woodland which I had one of the fastest test time in class. Finishing the day 1st in class and 4th overall.
Sunday was more of a struggle, I was exhausted from day 1. I found it really hard on the extreme test to get a fast smooth pace in the deep tight ruts over the logs.
Fitness needs to be improved on! Finishing the day 3rd in class and 9th overall!
