The Pomeche Ridge Challenge: a standing SRV time trial in association with the Buckyball Racing Club

Well it has taken me far, far too long to get around to running this course. But finally I put that behind and had a couple of runs this afternoon. I've never been that great at SRV flying, but my second run was much better than my first as I didn't get turned around half as many times as I did originally. I'm glad that I finally got around to running it, now I'll have to come back to it at some point to try to better my run :D
And none too shabby either if I may say so!

Ladies and gentlemen of the ridge ... we have a new scoreboard update!



Ozric takes 13th place on the Blue run with a time of 12 mins 16 secs (not far behind his "nemesis" Darplata94), he takes 10th place on the Red run with a time of 24 mins 03 secs (just 37 secs ahead of his nemesis), and he takes 9th place on the Black run with an excellent time of 33 mins 25 secs (nearly two whole minutes ahead of his nemesis). Nice run Ozric, very nice indeed!

w00t thanks, I'll take a top ten finish. I was over 2 minutes quicker on my second run at the black section than I was in my first. I took a few less risks and didn't end up spinning out a lot.

Fantastic first efforts Ozric, even finishing is a feat so to hit top 10 🤩

And extra Kudos for immediately knowing it was a DBS (that apparently Crank left behind)

Edit :spelling is hard

I thought I'd left it out in the Pleides, but hey. :D

I can't remember why I got sidetracked from the challenge, I know I did some trial runs. I'll head over again and actually record a run. I can't even remember if I ever managed to get to the end of the black run...
 
This might be of interest to people here who are either looking for an alternative to the Pomeche Ridge or perhaps just somewhere to practice before tackling the big one!
