Nice pix John. That last one captures the 'special' trail to a tee - but for the size of the boulders along it, you obviously picked a comfy place for your break.
No sign of a let up in the inferno heat ... the hottest in June since 1941!

Will It Buff Out?









The Suit:What would you consider to be your greatest weakness?

Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.

Cool drizzle here on the other side Simon. :)

How many riders are on the HISS event just now? The reason I ask is I have a couple of French riders on the French Ténéré forum from the Calais direction interested in riding the other event later. I told them you have camping factored in which was of great interest to them.

What are the maximum numbers you have in each event?

Waiting for the ride report later :)

Hi Keith,

We have only six here right now and four more joining over the weekend for the HISS down in Teruel, making ten. Is that the 'later' event that you were talking about?

The camping is separate from us but the sites give HISSites a discount, but that's up to them not me.

There's no specific limit to the HISS but if ever we had more than forty I'd probably close the gate as otherwise it would feel like a business convention. The only restriction is the number of riders who can fire as a group, which is set by each regional government - typical Spain! :) - here in Catalonia that's 7 and down in Aragon it's 5.

There's still time for you guys to come next week otherwise we're doing it all again in September ...

I do have a little video of the boulders but it consists mainly of swearing , two finger salutes and people falling , I might get banned :)
