I'm not sure what happened to the original thread, so I made a new one. I'm back for a second bash at it, despite the baggage carnage last year - hopefully they'll learn from that and sort it out this time around. (At least it's the correct length now!) Aside from those hiccups, it's a great, flat course and with fantastic marshalls and crowd support well worth doing.
If anyone has any questions about the race, the course or anything else, ask them here.
