Hi Aidan, I followed this link on your blog after some Googling (I have entered this race next year). Did the bike cross over itself near Valkenberg? Thanks for the report by the way, lots of good info.
p.s. Hope you don't mind the intrusion!
Hi James, no worries. Yes, there was a bridge installed (about 50m long) near Valkenberg. There was a bit of a bump at the start and end but nothing too bad.
If you can get there for a recon ride before the race it would be a very good use of your time!
I can, and I will! Cheers for the tip, an and great blog.
