Title: Racing Collective gravel/road 2020 calendar. FOC duro-style events

Looks pretty good to me. I'm booked in for Oxduro and Cotsduro. Basically it's on-off road touring with some mini time trials sprinkled in. Winners are those with the fastest times in the timed segments added up but the rest of it is at your own pace. There are also 3 'proper' races i.e. first one to the finish line wins too, with the 'trans' prenonym.

No prizes, no entry fees etc though you do need a device capable of tracking yourself in order to make the timed segments bit work, such as a Garmin, or your phone.

Quite a few of my club mates did the OxDuro last year, and a couple did CotsDuro too. It sounded like a lot of fun.
Not sure I'm going to be fit enough to do them this year. I have a crazy idea of building myself a recumbent out of my MTB and doing them on that next year (though I'm not sure recumbents are allowed - I should probably check).

I've done the ScotDuro a couple of times (though gave it a miss last year as I didn't have the mojo for that sort of thing). It's fun, once it's over. :D
