RAF Ardua - 18th January
RAF Ardua Bagshot 18-01-2015
The Guys and Gals from The RAF certainly know how to make an Enduro loop and
with the amount of rain lately it was never going to be easy but they put in
an amazing 9 mile loop that had many hard and easy routes and many climbs of
various sizes and structure but more importantly kept out of the very deep
water bogs, with a full grip of 150 riders of which 15 or so had travelled
up from Cornwall and the West Country, and from the feedback after the event
it was deemed as one of the best loops ever done at Bagshot. Details
