A great day organised by WLCT. For future races however more marshalls may be needed as there was a big gab between points. Possibly given marshall points before arrival as I was sent to one marshall point but there was already someone there. Other than that a great day,food and drink was great too. Will volunteer at this event again

Was a great experience assisting with this event. Had not witnessed the Mountain Bike Challenge before. Kudos to all who competed in the event! The organisation of the volunteers could have been better. We were left to wander off to find places that we thought suitable to marshall, not knowing where the paid WLCT staff were on the huge course. Still the event went well and appears to have been well appreciated.
