Foot out Flat out’s Paul has been on the hill at the NPS today – here’s update number 1. Oh my god.
“It’s been a mad day, the track is relentlessly steep, super dry and dusty. Real tech. I’ve never seen a race stopped so frequently, red flags and stops literally every 30 seconds. Mad crashes and riders getting off their bikes and walking down parts of the track. Seen a few veterans today say that they aint even racing tomorrow.
It’s going to be a mad race, some of the elite riders have been hitting mad speeds on what has to be the most mental track in Britain.”
