It's the OMM or the Nov clsasic, IMHO, and both isn't possible.
As i found out in 2015.
I don't think I have ever done the November classic. Historically never entered anything for a month after the omm. Sometimes I did recover ok but sometimes it took the full month. Tends to be harder if your the slightly weaker one of the pair.
Good effort at the weekend. It was all rather long on a more standard year you have probably just done an Elite equivalent.
