I’ve been meaning to do an Open 5 for years, however there has always been something else on or some other excuse. One of the perks as part of my Pearl Izumi Champion Team is an entry to an event and the Open 5 seemed to fit the bill as something a bit different.
The event concept is you have 5 hours to visit as many checkpoints (all worth different scores) as you can on bike and by foot – navigating !
Alan Hartley, a friend who has done loads of open5’s has given me lots of tips about kit, transitions and strategies and the bike is ready – time to drive up to North Yorkshire !
