    What sort of people are you after ?

    I'm kind-of interested, but

    (a) never raced before, and
    (b) don't own a mountain bike

    Assuming I can negotiate my way around (b), what skill level are you looking for? - My usual riding
    is a gentle tourng pace occasionally shouting at the kids to stop fighting in the bloody trailer.

    How many vistalight night-sticks do you need for 24 hours ?!

    How many laps do you reckon I'd make on one of those $99 bikes from Big-w ?:)

    Actually, more seriously, what sort of mountain biking skills are required for this sort of thing? I
    ride dirt roads occasionally, but that's VF-far from technical mountain biking skills.

    There's nearly a kilometre of ~ 10% grade that's followed by some 400(?) metres of 20% singletrack
    back downhill.

    Should I be scared or excited?!

    The last time I encountered a 20% grade, it took both of us to push the (touring loaded + trailer)
    bike to the top of it.

    Hmmm... what if it's muddy ;)

    My hand is raised. I'm not fast. With no team myself, I was considering a solo effort. I'm a
    Canberra resident, 40 something, regular rider with good fitness and skills - but more inclined to
    survival than racing.

  6. I don't know - how many people give you weird looks on a daily basis?

  7. If it's muddy we found out who can really ride and who are the pseudo racers who train on road
    bikes.......
