It has been a long way since 3 years ago when I put my bum on a saddle for the first time in my life…My dad would not believe it ! I finished my first 24hr solo race, just to finish something like that it is a reward on its own you learn so much about yourself that you can not imagine. We were 6 people who made the challenge to go and spend 24hr on the saddle. 6 crazy people and 10 amazing support people were side by side in two different worlds one, out on the track dancing between pine trees and the other one on the side of the track feeding, cleaning and managing some deep mental down.

Good Stuff

Great weekend.

Finished 6th in age group (last still riding), 7th singlespeed (last still riding) and 38th overall from 57 finishers and 73 starters.

Its a good thing this race is only on once a year as it is a real battle just to keep riding and finish which this year I did.

Well what a great race & my First 24hr on an Single Speed. We arrived around midday Friday set up camp quickly then headed to rego, to see if we could change are team members around as we had decided a few day before to enter a SS team for fun. Well the Girl at rego was very accommodating & quickly changed it all around & then we where set. We headed out for a few laps, & realized that my head set had shit its self, thankfully the onsite mechanics where able to fix it. So now I was ready.

Big Balls!

Todd (Todd took Shawn’s place as Shawn was really sick), Gav, Alex and I had a great fun and some trouble as well during this 24hr
First the track was just great and perfect to work on your cornering…I realized how bad I was at cornering when on Friday afternoon we went to ride the course …I was behind the boys and then after a corner lost some ground on them so I needed to pedal harder to get back on their tail….If I didn’t pedal I would have lost them….

Mont 2009- So good!

Mixed Nuts before the start What a weekend, and in my opinion the best 24hr race ever, on the best course of flowing fast tacky singletrack. Our team, Mixed Nuts was ade up of Steve01, Gazza, Martine and myself (Whisperer), and contested the mixed 40+ fours.

It was great to be in amongst a huge NobMob contingent, with the spirits running high.

As others have already said this race completely rocked!

Gazza, Martine & I arrived to talcum powder dust on the roads and drove around in circles for a while before locating camp NoBMoB. It was a nice evening at this point and setup camp quickly. Annoyed to have left a cool bag at home (downstairs in the carpark - a bit stinky upon return on Sunday) sat down to other snacks for dinner and placed a shopping order with the incoming Buck & Gary (thanks for obliging guys).

This ride turned out to be a great ride for training on long hilly fireroads as i got .... a little lost . i dont know how but i ended up next to the railway line at one point and with the pioneer spirit ....ok , with luck i found a fireroad through the guts of the place which had a huge hill that went forever and eventually rejoined the trail network and i continued on my merry way . And yes the Kangaroos were my only company untill i got back to the carpark , it was pretty full for a monday night and most there were just touching up , like me , on their Mont training .
