Yessss silver finish at Valleys Xtreme. Nick Plumb (organisor) you never disappoint! Brutal. Snotty. Disgusting track, in ALL the right ways. LOVED IT!!! Here’s the adventure.
I won the womens!! And this time there was competiton! The legend Patsy Quick, the first female to compete and finish the Dakar Rally, was also racing….we full raced, each swiping lead momentarily, while the other battled on. But in the last 15 minutes I buzzed past and manged to hold the lead. Winning! Super proud of myself.
My hip pain was tough following being ridden into during the prologue and so I’m really proud to have pushed on! What a race.
This is a solo event to find the ‘King or Queen of the Valleys’ in a grueling battle around a ten mile track at Walters Areana. Riders quality for their starting position in a 1-mile prologue on the Saturday afternoon. This prologue is a series of man-made obstacles from huge metal skips, large plastic waste pipes, boulder beds and tyre pits. This course then becomes the start of the main race, forcing riders to tackle them all again. There is an AM race followed by a PM race where the afternoon adds tougher sections for the expert and pro riders.
Gnarly, wet, snotty and tough but in all the right ways. If you’re looking for a challenge to push yourself to the next level…this is it! I finished with such a high of satisfaction it was like I was on drugs. Happiness drugs!
