    Problem with this review?

    Even a covering of fresh snow couldn't distract from the awesome terrain of Kielder, in fact, it probably added something extra. Crunching through snow seemed to make the MTB section somewhat surreal - bursting through tree lined single track into snow covered forest roads kept the interest up. Kielder castle was a great place for transition and with each stage returning to the same point made it great for family & spectators. How many transition areas have hot coffee and cakes within 20metres? The 2013 event is already in my planner. Well recommended.
