Just wondered if I could ask a question or 2.
Is the event semi-serious with more emphasis on the riding etc? I assume that some take it really seriously?
Is this the same event as run the year before as the "Pyrenees up" thats invite only?
Someone also mentioned that the wedding anniversary (that was something else I heard) is a cover story as we shouldn't really be doing it as an event officially and we are just out for a "ride"?

Cheers

I've done the HUMM 2009 and 2010. As you say some take it fairly seriously and others are just there to try some off road in the Pyrenees.

It is well organised but not a competition as such, so no-one needs race numbers, there are no manned checkpoints and not even a spectator grandstand on the start finish straight. But it is the best fun you can have on a bike and does have a nice competitive edge for those who are taking it seriously.

What's the HUMM like

Grant, parts 1 & 2 of the HUMM 2010 report. I had to split into two as it was too big for the forum.

Thanks for organising this for a total novice like me this was a brilliant adventure

Cheers

ok, thanks for that, got it!! Paypal is fine.

Now, can I just book it up for myself, and CONFIRM AT A LATER STAGE if I am coming with my own team members, or that I need "pairing" to another team?
