Attending Mugello?

Well, Last year I caught Philip Island (definitely one to return to!), this year I am hitting Mugello. Anyone else going to be in the Italian countryside???

Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon and he made his web gear. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 17:00, he is home.
He knows only The Cause.

Re: Attending Mugello?

Hitting Muggello more like it’ll be hitting you literally be prepared for a culture shock and make sure you take in Florence(at least) just don’t get robbed the locals are good at their craft

As for the TT just had two friends over from the IOM for a couple days just gone back before the rush.

In that case then you’ll know the trick of avoiding the queues first time we went took us nearly 5 hours to get out of the place and that was on a bike.

With friends who live over there I have a love/hate relationship with the place the number of racers that have been killed is well known but that fades into insignificance compared to the number of race goers that do if you are tempted to ride a bike there be very careful,it’s not you but the moron coming around the corner the other way who has forgotten which side of the road he should be on,think the record!! Set in the mid eighties is 23 in a fortnight

As for places to spectate we have been to most but top of the list is still Cronk y Voddy the first time a bike comes past and your are sat on the side of the road blimey and that is just the wind blast

Have a great trip it will blow your socks off in more ways than one ��
