Cross Country Magazine Tuesday Tip

This week's tip is for your boss. Feel free to copy and paste it into an email and send it on to them…

Your equipment

I've just heard the Red Bull X-Alps is going to be over 1,000km long this year.

The organisers announced the new route yesterday, and it's nearly 20% longer than the race in 2011. That's going to make it even more epic, and even more addictive.

This means that from 7 July I will need constant access to the internet and won't be able to help out much around the office – for about two weeks.

If you could help out by scheduling meetings without me, that would be great. Even if I do have to attend, I'll most likely be looking at my smartphone a lot and will only be able to say 'Uh?' – sorry.

Thanks for your understanding in this. Normal service will be resumed towards the end of July.

Kind regards

A L Pilotus
